All sessions at all venues will be FREE for the month of June as a thank you to you all for your loyalty and continuous support.
Due to the Christmas holidays, please note that there will be NO sessions at Tavira on either December 25th or January 1st. Tavira will open again on Monday January 8th, 2018
Tuesday 10th October will see the start of our over 60s sessions at the usual venue in Olhao. This is strictly for the over 60s (no exceptions) and hopefully will allow for a more relaxed session without interference from the 50-60 year old young ‘uns.
Normal time/venue etc, but on a Tuesday!
See you there……

Stay tuned to walkingfootballalgarve.com for more news as we get it.
All sessions in Olhao and Tavira throughout June will be subsidised to €2 per person per session. Get yourselves along for some sun and fun…..

Due to the increased numbers now taking part at both Olhao and Tavira, we have decided to reduce the normal session fees for May. Following on from the free sessions in April, all sessions at Tavira and Olhao will now only be €2 (instead of the usual €3) for the month of May.
Thank you for your continued support
