Barry is set to host an international walking football tournament.

Jenner Park Stadium will welcome the spectacle on Sunday, June 2, hosted by Barry Town United Walking Football Club.

Teams from Wales and England will compete in over 50's and over 60's matches.

Now in its third year, the tournament is backed by the Welsh Walking Football Federation and will feature Vale teams from Llantwit Major, Penarth, and Peterston-super-Ely as well as teams from across Wales and England.

The day’s itinerary includes a raft of walking football games, culminating in an awards presentation, followed by a buffet at the Jenner Park clubhouse.

As the deadline for entries looms, more than 21 teams, with around 210 players, are set to participate.

The organisers aim to transform the event into a social affair for the players and their families as well as a serious competition.

Andrew Weeks, chairperson of Barry Town United Walking Football Club, said: "The whole tournament will be played in great spirit and is a great advert for walking football.

"It is a great opportunity for anyone who loves football, regardless of age, ability or fitness to meet like-minded people.

"We are planning to grow and expand the tournament to extend participation and widen the development of the game."

Also on the agenda is fundraising for charity, with Finns Foundation chosen as the beneficiary.

Walking Football, one of the fastest-growing sports, offers an environment for football enthusiasts of all abilities to connect in a friendly and supportive setting.

The Barry club plays weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and encourages new members, specifically men over 50.

There are also plans to motivate the formation of a women’s club for those over 40.
