We encourage all people in Wealden, regardless of ability to age well. As a nation we have an ageing population- Whilst this is a positive outcome from improved health care and standards of living, our ageing populations are also costing our services millions of pounds due to inactivity. Of the 155,000 people living in Wealden, 23% are over 65 years which is more than the National average. We provide a wide range of programmes to encourage active ageing in Wealden including Active 4 life studio classes, Walking Netball, Walking Football and Squash.   

Walking Netball at Crowborough and Heathfield. A slower paced version of the game suitable for people recovering from injury, new to exercise or just wantign to play, but find the full version a little too much. Playing team sports can help improve balance, strength and cardiovascular health while also being great social environments. 

Tuesdays 5:30-6:30pm (term time) at Heathfield. Contact heathfieldenquiries@freedom-leisure.co.uk

Thursdays 11:30-12:30 (term time). at Crowborough. For more information please email crowborough.netball@gmail.com
