The group was set up in 5th February 2019 by our chairman Malcolm Bushell. Malcolm casually mentioned the idea and it was quickly seized by others delighted to once again play the game.
After a search for a suitable venue the Fair Game Sports Centre at Tremithousa was found. The purpose built five-a-side pitches were ideal. Andreas the owner, was extremely supportive; so much so that the Centre has officially become the home of Pafos United Walking Football Cyprus, whilst still available to a number of other groups.
The first session attracted 11 players. Word of mouth soon spread the message and by September 2019 over 70 players had registered. We believe we are the first walking football group to be set up in the Pafos, Cyprus area. The aim is to provide fun, fitness, friendship, and football.
Anyone over the age of 50 is welcome to join us at one of our playing days on Tuesdays. Fridays and Wednesday evenings. (details elsewhere on the site).
We have players from 50 to over 80 and all degrees of ability are catered for, we have warm up sessions to get your body moving before our key practise sessions. We also have a mini league each month for those players wishing to play competitive football. We currently have 78 registered players.We particularly welcome women players and to this aim we have reduced the age for women to 40!
The growth throughout 2019/2020 has been remarkable. We have attracted holiday makers wishing to have a go and have been visited by England International players and manager.
We have had teams from the UK wishing to visit us to play matches and had invitations to travel to other countries to play.
We are also active with off-field activities. We have an entertainments manager and have been enjoying various events such as picnics, boat trips, ten pin bowling etc.
Whilst we continue to attract sponsorship it is not all one way. We have supported a number of local charities the most recent being Caritas refugee centre and also the Tala Cat Sanctuary.
We are also pleased to work with local businesses in introducing a discount scheme which helps both the business and ourselves.
Out list of sponsors continues to grow and there are always sponsorship opportunities to available.
