Due to the unforeseen circumstances of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) we have had to put the start of our FIT SADDLERS programme on hold for the time being.

In the meantime, please check out the EFL Trust’s FIT FANS Online Sessions here. There are hours of sessions to choose from, and these are great options to help you get into exercise and remain active!


FIT FANS is a 12-week programme for men and women aged 35-65 who are overweight or obese, and want to reach the goal of a healthier lifestyle.

Our FIT SADDLERS programme will delivered on Friday evenings, at Walsall FC’s Banks’s Stadium.

Each week we work through 45 minutes of discussion topics on healthy eating, activity, hydration and alcohol followed by 45 minutes activity. The activity sessions are tailored to those new to exercise, or those who have been out of the swing of things for a while.

The project is aimed at football fans, and all aspects of FIT SADDLERS sessions are delivered inside different areas of the Banks’s Stadium. The project includes a behind the scenes stadium tour, a visit from a player/ex-player/club ambassador (subject to availability) and 2 free tickets to a Walsall FC home game.

This project has 3 start dates:
Friday 24th April 2020 – 5.30pm to 7.00pm – Male only
August 2020 – Female only
August 2020 – Male only
