Active Hastings celebrate exercise classes for everyone
For International Day of Older People, Active Hastings are raising awareness of some of their age friendly classes that are available throughout Hastings, kicking off with their Walking Tennis sessions.
In June Active Hastings launched their Walking Tennis sessions in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and Break Point Tennis, with sessions taking place every Wednesday in Alexandra Park. Tennis can be played at any age and Walking Tennis offers an easy way for people to keep their body and mind active, while also enjoying the social side of being part of a tennis community.
New Age Kurling and Boccia also takes place every Thursday at Robsack Community Centre. New Age Kurling can be played standing or seated, so all ages and abilities can join in. Other Active Hastings activities include: Walking Football, Parkinson's Exercise Class, Over 50's Aerobics, Cancer Rehab Exercise Class and a new lower back pain class will be coming soon. For more information and for the full list of activities available visit: www.activehastings.org.uk
Councillor Andy Batsford, lead councillor for Health and Culture at Hastings Borough Council, said: "We are very proud to be delivering a range of physical activity classes which benefit people of all ages and abilities. These classes also give everyone the opportunity to meet new people and have a go at something they may not have tried before."
Active Hastings is hosted by Hastings Borough Council, in partnership with East Sussex County Council, and brings together a wide range of local and national partners to ensure that everyone in Hastings can get active. There are a range of exercise classes to suit everyone, visit the Active Hastings website for the list of activities happening near you (www.activehastings.org.uk).
Notes to editor:
Active Hastings works closely with local providers of physical activity to give you easy, fun ways to get your everyday dose of physical activity. It only takes 30 minutes a day for adults and 60 a day for children to get fitter, healthier and happier. You can even break it down into 10 minute slots!
Active Hastings coordinates the local Community Physical Activity Network, which brings together schools, sport clubs, National Governing Bodies of Sport, health organisations, the voluntary sector and the private sector to work together, unblock barriers to participation and improve the local sport and physical activity delivery system.
