Walking Basketball

25 December, 2018

If you are 45 or older and would like to sweat buckets by walking fast or take life a bit easier in a most friendly environment, look no further than the Woking Leisure Centre.

The sessions are held every Monday (7pm-8pm) and are run by a 62-year old, L3 coach carrying a number of sporting injuries. As far as injuries go, he is not dissimilar to the players who attend on a regular basis, featuring knee guards, taped-up ankles, elbow sleeves and more exotic exoskeletons. Some of us also carry a spare tyre for good measure, which we pretend to have lost entirely after taking 4,000 steps in one hour and consequently feel entitled to a well-earned curry afterwards. We do come back next Monday of course, spare tyres and all.

May I also mention that not all of us are former European champions or NBA ring holders but we muddle through as best we can. Oh, and we don't keep score.

Jokes aside, our main objective is to get some aerobic exercise playing the sport we love, without getting injured.

Does this sound like something you would like to do?

Just pay your £3 at Reception, save your receipt to give to the coach and make your way down to join us on the basketball court. We'll be there waiting for you.
