Women’s Over 50s Joy O’Neil Appears In The FA Social & Economic Report

Case Study Spreading positivity through Walking Football

Joy had poor physical and mental health but Walking Football has helped to turn
that around.

She found a men’s Walking Football session in Lincoln and played there for two years,
before going on to set up two of her own sessions with a cohort of more than 10 women
now playing on a weekly basis.

It gave Joy her first chance in life to play football. She was inspired to get more women
playing and she is now so invested that she goes across the county to grow the female
Walking Football player network to benefit women such as herself. She has even been
selected for the England Women Walking Football squad.
