If you need Nordic Walking Poles provided by the instructor

For those who need to borrow poles it is essential that you sign up to the sessions beforehand so instructors know how many sets of poles they will need, this will help avoid any disappointment.

Please turn up at least 10 minutes before the session so that everyone can catch up beforehand and enjoy a full session - especially those who need to be set up with poles. Nordic Walk instructors will not normally delay the session for latecomers.

Tuesdays

UPDATE:

We have included Table Tennis to our Badminton session as a new activity and to cater to increasing numbers at this session each week. The table tennis table is located in the room right next door and attendees can choose to participate in both activities over the course of the two hour session.

Benefits for Badminton:

Impact helps the growth of the cells which form bones, making Badminton a great sport for older people and those looking to strengthen their bones and prevent fractures – it is lower impact that squash and tennis so it's a great compromise for those unable to play faster, more high impact sports.

Benefits of Table Tennis:

Playing table tennis has great health benefits for seniors and is a great way to stimulate the brain and promote quick thinking while improving hand-eye coordination. Table tennis is a low-injury risk sport that keeps one fit and flexible and improves reflexes.

 

Tuesdays

Yoga may hold a key to aging well, suggests a growing body of research into its potential benefits for body and mind — benefits that include reducing heart rate and blood pressure, relieving anxiety and depression, and easing back pain.
