Shoalhaven Basketball’s administration manager Cheryl Hunter is looking forward to the start of walking basketball.

Two options are open for people wanting to take part in a new community health program which is getting ready to hit the local basketball courts.

Walking basketball will start this Tuesday (October 18) from 6pm at the Bomaderry Stadium and it’s a great way to people to get active and have fun.

If you can’t make the Tuesday event why night try to the Wednesday program which starts tomorrow (October 19) from 11am.

Tuesday’s walking basketball is suitable for people with a disability, those who want to enjoy walking while taking part in a team sport, for people returning to sport from injury, for people who want to make friends and for community groups.

A 12 month registration for the Tuesday program costs $15 and there is a $6 fee each night you play.

Wednesday’s program is for people who have a disability, are returning from injury community health groups looking for gentle rehab and for aged care groups looking for activities and gentle exercise.

Shoalhaven Basketball’s administration manager Cheryl Hunter said the main aim is for people to have fun, get exercise and enjoy taking part in a new sport.

“It’s about doing exercise when you really don’t notice you are doing it. You are here having fun and the game will be completely modified,” she said.
