U3A Casey Bulletin May 28, 2022
Walking Basketball

Walking Basketball is a low impact, social and fun way to improve the levels of physical activity for inactive and slightly active Victorians including those recovering from injury.

The program provides optimal health benefits to all who participate including those who might be intimidated by the pace and impact of a traditional basketball game but love the slower more social version of Walking Basketball.

Walking basketball is for participants of all ages, genders and abilities and helps to maintain and improve health and decrease risk factors associated with sedentary behaviour.

What makes Walking Basketball stand out from most activities is that it doesn’t matter if you have never played the game of basketball before or you are pretty handy on the court as this will still be a level playing field for everyone within a social, fun and non-competitive environment.

The first class will be held Thursday, August 4, starting at 10.00 am at:

Endeavour Hills Leisure Centre

This is an indoor court so no weather problems

Bruce Campbell will lead the group. Bruce is a very experienced basketballer - player & coach

Kathy Perry of Basketball Victoria will join us for the first class to introduce us to walking basketball.

Basketball Victoria is assisting U3A Casey to start the walking basketball program by providing equipment & assisting with court hire costs for the first few classes.

Walking Basketball is now listed in U3A Casey courses.

Sign up for this new course starting August 4 - be an inaugural member

Social Adventures trip to the Australian Garden Cranbourne 20-5-22 

On Friday the 20th of May a group from Social Adventures visited the wonderful Australian Gardens Cranbourne.

With beautiful weather we were able to stroll around this unique garden full of plants and mini landforms from all over Australia.

We then had a most enjoyable lunch at the cafe. So nice to have the time to get to know more about each other.

The next Social Adventure is on the 17th of June.
