Walking Soccer: Where the Game Slows Down, but the Fun Doesn't!

The GOOD Games is all about Sport for Life and Sport for All. That's why we were thrilled to introduce Walking Soccer this year, a sport where passion meets a gentler pace.

Age, injuries, or simply preferring a less intense game shouldn't stop you from enjoying the sport you love. Walking Soccer proves you can still experience competition, camaraderie, and fun, even at a slower speed.

We're committed to breaking down barriers and making sport accessible to everyone. That's why we're already busy exploring more inclusive sports to add to next year's GOOD Games lineup!

Ready to get back in the game? What sport would you play if a less intense version existed?

Great to see that it was for community, and not just athletes; I was able to bring my family, and we could all enjoy ourselves, even when I was not competing.

The Good Games was an awesome event for players and spectators. There seemed to be something for everyone of every age. Food trucks were a nice addition so you could grab a snack between games. Great event for the first year. It will only get bigger and better. Lots of fun!!
