‘Active Adults’ courses now open for booking

Nordic walking

The September term of ‘Active Adults’ sports courses is now open for bookings.

The relaxed and informal sports sessions are aimed at the over 35s, and are perfect for people who haven’t done a sport for a long time or who would like to have a go at something new.

As well as badminton, tennis, FitSteps, golf, indoor bowls, martial arts, Nordic walking, pilates, walking football and yoga, there are new activities this term including Clubbercise, Dance Yourself Fit, Fit in the Park, Just Play Football, SwingStreetJazz Solo Dance Class and Yoga in the Evenings.

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said, “With lots of different sports on offer at venues across the Borough, this is a great chance to get back into sport in a friendly atmosphere.”

The courses start week beginning 23 September, and run for eight weeks. The sessions are run exclusively for adults, run by experienced and qualified coaches.

Unless otherwise specified, all the courses are aimed at beginners with no special equipment required.
