Walking Cricket

If you think cricket is a slow game, what will you make of Walking Cricket?  But seriously, the emergence of a wide range of ‘walking’ versions of popular sports -including football, rugby, basketball, netball, hockey, rounders and tennis – has seen thousands of those aged 50+ with conditions which limit their participation in the traditional versions, discover a new way to remain active.  Not only is it proving physically beneficial but engaging with others in sports is shown to improve mental health and general wellbeing.

A Walking Sport is, understandably, a slower version of a game and rules are adapted to accommodate the slower pace.  Those who are addressing weight-related issues or recovering from operations or treatments and undergoing rehabilitation have found walking sports a real aid to improving their condition.  Some who suffer from social isolation or loneliness testify to the positive effect these sports have brought them.  So, if you are finding that age or disability mean you are having to make adjustments, then a Walking Sport may offer you a continuing opportunity to participate in an activity closely associated with one you have previously enjoyed.

Refreshments available afterwards in the Minehead Eye Cafe.
