Solihull Football Centre proudly boasts the worlds first 4G Astro surface specifically designed for walking football. With the increased popularity of the UK's fastest growing sport we felt it was time to use our experience to design what we feel caters for the competitive needs of walking football. It is for this reason it is the home of Birmingham Walking Football Club.
Currently, competitive walking football matches and tournaments are played across the country on a multitude of different surfaces and pitch sizes. Teams sometimes struggle to find appropriate venues with the correct pitch parameters in accordance with walking football rules. D's which are too large or too small, poorly sized goals and incorrect placing of penalty spots are just some of the pitch issues that are all too common.
