East Riding of Yorkshire Council's health and wellbeing team are working in partnership with East Riding Leisure Beverley to launch a new multi activity session, 'Lets' Get Moving', suited to those people who would like to take part in some fun and friendly activity.
The sessions will start on Thursday, 12 May at East Riding Leisure Beverley, from 2pm-3pm, and will run for 10 weeks. Participants will be given the option of trying a range of different activities such as Boccia (a form of bowls), New Age Kurling, ping pong, seated volleyball, short tennis, badminton and much more.
Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said: "There is strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help you lead a healthier and happier life.
"People who are regularly active have a lower risk of developing many long term conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.
"Research shows that physical activity can also help to boost self-esteem, improve your mood, sleep quality and energy levels, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
"I hope that lots of people will want to come along to 'Let's Get Moving', and enjoy all the benefits of gentle exercise."
The sessions at East Riding Leisure Beverley will be free of charge on the launch date and £2.80 thereafter. There is no need to book - just wear appropriate clothing and footwear and bring a drink.
The sessions are aimed at all ability levels, and are designed to offer a range of activities in a fun environment.
