Whittlesea U3A’s second World Cup for Walking Football was held on October 25th 2018 at the Mill Park Basketball stadium.
The event was a great success with 5 men’s teams and 4 ladies teams taking part. Teams consisted of 5 players and in the men’s competition represented Ireland, Australia, Sri Lanka, Greece and Italy while the ladies teams represented Sri Lanka, United Nations 1, United Nations 2 and Australia.
Ireland won the men’s competition and United Nations 2 won the ladies competition.
Most of the players were from Whittlesea U3A but we were very happy to welcome players from Darebin and the Keilor / Brimbank area.
The event had major support from Whittlesea Council and from the Melbourne City FC.
The event was officially opened by Whittlesea U3A president Glen Wall and the cups and medals were presented to the winners by representatives from Football Federation Victoria.
The video demonstrates the fun the participants enjoyed.
