Summer Sports Day 2016
Three Weeks to Go!
Our annual 50s+ Sports Day is only three weeks away! On 10th August from 12.00pm – 3.30pm, Lark Lane Community Centre will play host to an afternoon of activities, games, friendly competition and most of all, fun.

No matter what your sporting abilities, with both team and solo sports including boccia, fun relays, walking netball and athlefit, there will be something for everyone. Even if sports aren’t your thing, we will have quizzes (including prizes!) and plenty of time for socialising. Refreshments of tea, coffee and juice will be provided and other relevant organisations are bringing along stalls for the day.

Here are just some of the activities we have planned for the day:

Walking Netball

Walking Netball is ideal for people of all ability levels to improve their health and welbeing as you can start gently and build up gradually, aiming to do a little more each session.

Regular weight-bearing exercise such as Walking Netball helps keep bones strong by forcing the bones in the lower half of your body to bear a person’s full weight each time they move. Older people who take part in Walking Netball will see many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility. For more details please see the England Netballwebsite.

AthleFIT is a new fun fitness programme from England Athletics.

It combines indoor athletics with a fun and exciting keep fit programme. We will utilise these fun athletic games in our 50s Plus Sports Day event. Events include foam javelin, agility races, bean bag races and much more. These races are so much fun you’ll feel you’re back in the school playground!

Boccia is a fun precision ball sport, related to bowls, which is played by competitors with or without a physical disability or requiring the use of a wheelchair. Two sides compete over a set number of ends, aiming to score as many points as possible by placing their set of coloured balls closest to the white jack ball.

Please do get in touch if you or someone you know would like to attend so that we can finalise numbers for the event. You can call our friendly team on 0151 728 8874 or e-mail
