Come and try a new sport at a bargain price
A program of recreational sporting activities is currently on offer in Adelaide. Active Ageing Australia is funded by the SA Office for Sport and Recreation, and is supported by many local councils and sporting organisations to provide coaches and venues.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reports biannually on the health of Australians, and their website states we are growing and our population is ageing. In the last 40 years the number of adults aged over 65 has tripled to 3.3 million. The good news is our government funds many departments to help us as we age, with Active Ageing helping with our physical well being. So where are you headed? Will your fitness see you into your older years? With the lovely spring weather many people start considering getting fit. So maybe it's time to try a new sport now.

Rusty tennis

One program currently available is '5 for 10', which offers a wide selection of recreational sports such Aussie bocce, beach volleyball, golf and lawn bowls. Crafty croquet sounds intriguing and I know it's a fun game. Perhaps you may enjoy being on the water doing dragon boating or stand up paddling. All equipment is provided, with some very patient coaches giving the modified instruction. All the activities will give you the opportunity to mix with others, have some laughs and make new friends, which is good for our mental health also.

A group learning golf

There are many more sports on offer than those I have mentioned here, at various venues all over Adelaide. All you need to do is register on the 5 for 10 link on the Active Ageing website. Details of the times and venues for all activities are also given.
