ActivSport Walking Football @ Gainsborough Sports and Community Centre

ActivSport Walking Football @ Gainsborough Sports and Community Centre | England | United Kingdom

Thursday 10.30am-12.00pm
Gainsborough Sports and Community Centre,
5 Brazier’s Wood Road, Ipswich, IP3 0SP

Walking Football is an adapted version of the game which provides a great way for older independent adults to keep playing a team sport. This session is played outdoors on the all-weather surface. We play rules similar to small-sided football, but without the running. Players are not permitted to run at any time, with or without the ball. We play the game without any ‘intentional’ physical contact, so there is limited potential to ‘tackle’. Despite all of this, the games are certainly not slow! It provides a challenging and fun work out for most of us (Players are covering between 2-2.5 miles in a session!).

Suitable for both female and male participants.

This session is targeted particularly at participants who are 55 years and over, and who do not feel able (for whatever reason), to play regular small-sided football. This age restriction does not apply to female players. The session consists of a group warm up, refereed game and a stretch cool down. It is led by one of our experienced Activity Leaders.

We now have access to the new changing and showering facilities, which are adjacent to the all-weather pitches. Toilet facilities are also available adjacent to the playing area.

£5.00 per session

Local bus route and off-road parking available.

Covid-19 measures (Hands-Face-Space-Fresh Air) are in place at these sessions. We always welcome new participants – If you would like more information about this, or any of our other ActivSport groups, please call us on 01473 345350 or email mike@activlives.org.uk

Tuesday 2.00-3.30pm
Whitton Sports Centre,
Whitton Church Lane, Ipswich IP1 6LW

This session is aimed at adults of any age who would like to have a go at the great game of badminton. It’s the fastest racket sport in the world but don’t worry, we usually take our time when we play! We start each session with a warm up together as a group, just to loosen up and to prepare for the session. Then we have a go at one or two practices (we are all keen to improve a little, if we can), we then play plenty of games, usually doubles but we do sometimes have a game of singles (very energetic!).

All of the equipment is provided, so don’t worry if you don’t have your own racket. The session is led by a Badminton England Licensed Coach.

We are not a club – but we are a very friendly group who love to play badminton. Beginners, as well as those who haven’t played since their school days, are particularly welcome.

£4.50 per session – please bring your own drink and be changed ready to play as we don’t currently have access to changing facilities.

Local bus route and off-road parking available.

Covid-19 measures (Hands-Face-Space-Fresh Air) will be in place at these sessions. We always welcome new participants – If you would like more information about this, or any of our other ActivSport groups, please call us on 01473 345350 or email mike@activlives.org.uk
