‘Walk Rugby: Try It With The Tigers’ s - A new health and well being project by Castleford Tigers.
Walk Rugby is a non-contact game which is particularly easy to play, requiring no prior knowledge or experience.
We are now looking for participants to join the Castleford Tigers’ ‘Walk Rugby: Try It With The Tigers’ programme to start on Tuesday 19th January 2016 at 7.00pm till 8.00pm indoors at The Sports Hall, New College, Park Lane, Pontefract WF8 4QR.
Tigers Trust, the charitable arm of Castleford Tigers, are running the programme in association with Age UK Wakefield District. Thanks to this new partnership you’ll be able to focus on increasing activity levels, developing and maintaining stamina, strength, flexibility and balance whilst at walking pace!
There’s no doubt that keeping active makes us feel more energetic, helps to manage high blood pressure and alleviate discomfort from stiffness, stimulates a poor appetite whilst also maintaining a healthy weight, lifts the mood and Walk Rugby is an ideal way to meet others, whether old or new friends. It is aimed at men and women aged 50+ who might want to exercise in a sociable environment rather than visit a gym. Walk Rugby was a great success on our recent men’s weight management project and we found that it allowed men of all levels of fitness and rugby skill to participate fully in the sessions and the following are examples of comments from some of the participants on that project;
“I have a better attitude towards general exercise and am more eager to keep to a fitness routine”
“My concentration levels and alertness have improved”
“I feel healthier, have more energy and am looking more at what eat”
“I have enjoyed meeting like-minded people with similar goals”
“I have enjoyed the practical activity; it is more fun in a group”
“It has been great meeting people like me”.
The taster session at New College on Tuesday 12th January went well and it was enjoyed by all concerned. We do need more participants to attend so that you can and see for yourself how enjoyable it is. There is a discounted charge of just £3 for each session.
Please come along to the weekly sessions starting on 19th January and for more information and/or to enrol on the programme run by Tigers Trust on behalf of Castleford Tigers in association with Age UK please contact Steve Ball on 07707927090 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
