Are you over 50 and interested in team sports? A new sports programme for the over 50’s is being launched at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre on the 9th April 2019.

"Life in the Old Dogs" is a new group for over 50's who are interested in playing competitive team sports. No membership is required, just book and pay for your space on their website, turn up and play!

The weekly sessions will take place on Tuesday afternoons (2:30-3:30pm, 3:30-4:30pm) and Thursday mornings (9:30-10:30am and 10:30-11:30am) and initially sports will include football and basketball.

The programme organiser, David James said ‘todays 60 year old is the new 40 and people this age can be very active and easily capable of playing team sports’. Mr James continued ‘why shouldn’t the over 50’s take up team sports again; going to the gym, cycling, etc are excellent ways to keep fit but you can’t beat team banter, fun and competitive games to feel alive!’. Participants will also be encouraged to take part in social events outside the sports hall creating a new network of friends.

All abilities and fitness levels are welcome to join in. Individual participating players simply book a place on-line and turn up. Players will be put into teams on arrival. There is no joining fee but places are limited to 12 per game and cost £5. Allocation is on first come basis.
