People aged 50 and over can join a new basketball club.

Walking Basketball is a ball game with all the rules of basketball plus another – running is forbidden.

The new group will be based at Lime Kiln Leisure Centre, in Royal Wootton Bassett, and is aimed at older people looking for a gentle way to get fit while having fun and meeting new people.

It is open to men and women of all abilities. The group starts with a six-week trial period at the leisure centre and the first session will be on May 4 from 11am-noon.

The cost is £1 per session. Booking is essential because there are only 20 places available.

For more details, speak to the staff at the leisure centre or call 01793 852197.
