ActivLives has re-scheduled the Showcase Event that it is holding at the Salvation Army Priory Centre, Queen’s Way, Ipswich IP3 9EX. The original event had to be postponed due to the recent snow, the new date is now Thursday 22nd March.
The event, which is being held between 10.30am-2.00pm, is targeted at anyone over the age of 45 (there is no upper age limit!), and who would like to get involved with some accessible physical and sports activity.
The programme will include a variety of tasters including New Age Kurling, Ping Pong, New Age Bowls, Yoga and the Paralympic sport of Boccia.
There will be a yoga taster class in the morning and a Boccia demonstration from local GB Paralympian, Evie Edwards in the afternoon.

“We would encourage anyone who would like to have a go at something new, to come along”, said Mike McCarthy, ActivIpswich Project Manager. “This is inclusive physical activity that anyone can get involved with, you definitely do not need to be ‘sporty’ to enjoy getting active!”
All of the sports and activities at this event can be carried out either seated or standing, including the yoga taster.
This free event is being held in a fully accessible venue and includes a light buffet lunch. If you would like to book your place and lunch, please call ActivLives on 01473 345350.
