One of our priorities is to create a properly trained and accredited team of referees. This initiative is a crucial element of our plans to eradicate running, and to reduce the physicality problems currently being experienced.

Free training courses will be run from summer 2017. If you would like to be amongst the first WFA qualified referees please contact

You do not need to be an FA qualified referee, but ideally you will be a regular and enthusiastic Walking Football player. There will be no upper age limit.
