Walking Basketball delivers a walking paced version of the fast and furious game we are all used to. Walking Basketball is suitable for all irrespective of gender age, sizes, abilities and/or impairments. Whist Walking Basketball is for everyone we have found the following groups benefit particularly well from our sport - People over 40‘s, 50’s, 60’s+ looking to maintain a good level of fitness. Obese adults,children and younger people. Mum’s getting into shape after pregnancy. Post injury/surgery rehabilitation candidates. This new sport although aimed at the over 40's can be played by most. Obviously this will benefit so many over 40's who can or find it difficult to run. Walking basketball is also a route back into basketball for those who maybe embarrassed or worried they could not go straight into the running game. There are also cases of injured players playing walking basketball as a physio route back into the running game.

What we'll deliver:

  • Advertisement and promotion
  • Equipment and hall hire costs
  • Get Qualified walking basketball coaches. Volunteers qualified in coaching, first aid team management

Why it's a great idea:

Great for our club to have something for older ex players, also a place for our injured players. This would be a great recreational / social activity for the community and a good place to keep help people be more active in there lives.

Steps to get it done:

  • 15 regular players. Buy kit and play a competitive game.
