Bubbly and homemade cakes were the order of the day as East Algarve Walking Football celebrated the fifth birthday of walking football being introduced to the Algarve at Olhão. Since then, the sport has spread its wings to Tavira, Lagos, Vilamoura and Benfica (Lisbon). The weekly sessions in Tavira at the astro-turf pitch adjoining the Municipal Pavilion Dr. Eduardo Mansinho, Av. Zeca Afonso, now take place on Friday mornings from 9.30 to 11.30am.
