The last couple of months have been a tough time with everybody affected one way or another.
Obviously walking football has also been a victim of this. However, as countries start to look at the post-COVID-19 environment, walking football is also looking at new tournaments. We have our own Olhão tournament in October. We have also now been invited to participate in the Walking Football Spanish Invitation Cup.
The tournament will take place on 20–22 November in Mijas Costas in southern Spain. There will be two sections – over 50 and over 60, both 7-a-side plus substitutes. We are able to enter up to two teams in each category.
- Water pitch side.
- Medical team on standby at match times
- Pitchside food concession selling sandwiches, soup, confectionery etc
- Concession for sport massage
Accommodation can be provided and the total cost would be €190.00 per person assuming two people sharing. The accommodation is at Finca Naudrup (http://www.fincanaundrup.com/). This would include:
- Accommodation Friday/Saturday/Sunday with check out on Monday 23 November
- Dinner Friday/Saturday night
- Breakfast Saturday/Sunday
- Presentation Dinner on Sunday evening
- On-site bar and other facilities
We recognise that this tournament could get cancelled at relatively short notice so we will be working to ensure that nobody would lose any money if that were to happen. We will also be checking that all relevant safety criteria are met
At this stage we would like to get an indication of interest in participating in this tournament so that we can decide how many teams we want to enter. Also it would be useful to know if partners would also be expected to travel. If you have an interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
