WALKING CRICKET IN TAUNTON
Do you ever look back on your younger sporting days and wish you could re-live those golden moments?
Perhaps you’ve never been very sporty, but you’ve often watched others experience the camaraderie of being part of a team and felt a little envious?
Maybe you’re recovering from an accident or illness and have been encouraged to exercise more, but just don’t feel very motivated and have no idea how to get started?
You may have a few more years behind you now and you may have a few more aches and pains, but that doesn’t have to stop you enjoying the physical, mental and social boost that walking sports can bring.
Staying active as you get older can help you live a happier and healthier life because exercise is proven to do all kinds of good things for your body and mind, from decreasing cholesterol and preventing osteoporosis to reducing stress and helping with the onset of dementia.
Walking sports are a fun way to keep your energy up, make new friends, and look after your health.
Walking Cricket is the sport you love, just played at a slower pace – so it’s perfect for people who are older, or less physically able, but who still want to enjoy the thrill of the game. The game can be played as teams or in pairs. Everything is walking, including the ‘runs’ and fielding, and a match lasts about an hour. A soft ball is also used.
WHY PLAY WALKING CRICKET?
Whether you’re batting, bowling, or fielding, it’s a great form of cardio exercise. It also improves both agility and hand-eye coordination.
Walking Cricket is a very social sport, filled with team spirit and fun.
