The ladies at Bracknell Town Walking Football club will be holding their very first tournament this weekend.

25 players, including eight at international level, will be taking part in the competition on Sunday, July 10 at Bracknell Leisure Centre.

Ten teams will be going up against the home team, including ladies football clubs as far away as Exeter and Great Wakering.

Over the past three years, the team has grown from just 3 members to a total of 25. Eight of these ladies have gone on to trial for international level, including Tanya Jacobs who was one of the first team members.

Her first international match was England v Wales in 2019.

Tanya said: “Walking football is great for not only fitness, but mental wellbeing too, it is the only socialising some of our older guys do.

“For me it has been a life line as I left the Army after 23 years this Jan, and like a lot of Vets, I have struggled on moving back to my home town of Bracknell.

“Walking football has giveth me the team ethos I miss and the amazing banter.”
