Walk this May…
Walking is great to keep active and get out into nature, it has been a lifeline during the past year, helping many of us stay connected. There are plenty of ways to #WalkThisMay
Our Sport Parkinson’s Try-athlon hosts Worcester Warriors,have teamed up with Bromsgrove RFC and Bromsgrove District Council to run walking rugby sessions.
The free sessions will be held on Fridays, starting on May 7, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, on the lower field AstroTurf pitch at Bromsgrove Cricket, Hockey and Tennis Club in St Godwald’s Road, Aston Fields.
The Foundation will fund the project and cover the cost of pitch hire, equipment and coaching.
Walking rugby is slowed-down non-contact version of the sport which can be played by all ages and all abilities.
Or maybe a different shaped ball?
Stuart Langworthy, England manager for over 60s Men’s Walking Football team and Assistant Manager for over 40s Ladies team will be running a walking football training event for people with Parkinson’s at Watford FC’s training Ground on Saturday 15 May.
If you are interested in playing, or learning about the game and understanding the rules before the Try- Athlon, this event could be for you.
Open to everyone with Parkinson’s, all abilities and any football experience welcome for both men and women. Age is not a factor either. It doesn’t matter if you play regularly, or haven’t played before, everyone is welcome! Players will have the opportunity to play an exhibition match at the Sport’s Parkinson’s Summer Try-Athlon on 24th July at the SIxways Stadium in Worcester, as part of the ‘south of England’ Walking Football team in a match against a similar team from the north.
