1. All across the UK, new walking sports teams are popping up, with the idea of getting older and less physically able individuals together enjoying competitive team sports without the high impact or strenuous level of activity that standard versions of the same games require. Most of the sports have the same rules as standard versions only rather than running to get the ball or get to the next base, you walk.
Basketball England and Walking Basketball UK have agreed a partnership to pilot the upscaling of Walking Basketball across ten sites in England. Walking Basketball is an activity that everyone can enjoy, regardless of their age of physical ability, and the partnership, initially for six months, will see Basketball England commissioning Walking Basketball UK to launch ten new Walking Basketball clubs with the ambition of encouraging 300 new players to the game of Walking Basketball.
