The Silver Sunday Cup

Since Sunday 1st October 2017 we have held an annual Walking Football Tournament to highlight our Loneliness in Older People campaign, which supports older people in Worcester. The tournament is part of the National Silver Sunday Campaign (#SilverSundayuk)

The Tournament takes place on the 3G pitch at The KGV Community Hub in Ash Avenue, Worcester WR4 9TL with eight teams with players over 50 taking part.

This year we will be running the Tournament on Sunday 6th October 2019 and we are now accepting entries. We have spaces for up to eight teams – For details about this tournament please click here

Sponsor the #SilverSundayUK Cup

There are hundreds of events running across the UK on #silversundayuk but we are the only group offering a Challenge Cup at the moment (we hope that changes). If you would like to sponsor the event, please get in touch. We are running a Pay What You Want sponsorship scheme for:

Pitchside Advertising – Place your banner around the pitch at The KGV Community Hub
Website and Social Media Advertising – Be involved in all of our Website & Social Media Communications
#SilverSunday UK Cup – be the Main Sponsor of the event

All income raised from the day will support helping Lonely older people in Worcester and we will be giving updates throughout the year on where your money is spent.

We would like to thank Walking Football for helping to promote this Tournament
