Adel Albion is a newly formed walking football club dedicated to not only promoting the game of Walking Football, but also to ensuring the game is played with a very particular ethos. A number of founder members, all of whom are retired, have been playing Walking Football together since 2015. During that time these members have seen what they regard as significant changes within the sport which they feel are not in keeping with the original intent of walking football.
So strong are those beliefs and the players’ commitment to the original intent, a decision was made to create a new club and hence the founding of Adel Albion WFC.
The club is owned by its members and is run on a ‘not for profit’ basis. Overall management is by member elected committee, with particular members being responsible for everyday activities.
