Walking Football (Mixed)

A sport that has received an unexpected profile after featuring in a recent advert on TV! Not aimed at a specific age group but perfect for those whose circumstance dictates that walking would be better than running.

Taunton Walking Football every Tuesday 10.00am @ Taunton Vale Sports Club. No need to book, just turn up.

Bridgwater Walking Football every Wednesday 11.00am at Hinkley Point pitches, Bath Road. No need to book, just turn up

Contact Stewart Collins for details of associated Walking Football groups in Williton, Minehead and Porlock

Contact Aaron Clements at Somerset FA for information on other groups around the County

Walking Netball (Ladies only)

Similar to it's football counterpart. Not played for a long time? Not sure the full running game is for you? Then this may well be the perfect reintroduction for you! Again, no age group limitations!

Will always be indoors so completely weather proof, Tuesday mornings 9.30am at Taunton Vale Sports Club.

Pay and Play Netball

A turn up and play session, particularly suited to those who want to enjoy playing Netball, but aren't able or don't want to commit to regular competitive Netball at this moment in time.

Loved it at school but haven't played for quite a while? This may be your route back! Contact Helen Brunt for details of available opportunities

Social Badminton

Fun, Social Badminton for those who do not wish or are unable to commit to a formal Badminton club. No commitment needed, no partner required (though you are welcome to bring one) just turn up and Play

Monday evenings, 7 - 8pm in the sportshall at Haygrove School, Bridgwater

Yoga in the Treetops

Aimed at but not exclusively for, people living with and beyond Cancer. Meets on Monday mornings in the fabulous upstairs room (Parkroom) at the COACH Centre in French Weir Park, Taunton. There are 3 sessions of varying levels of intensity. 9.00am is the most intense, then 10.15am then 11.15am for a primarily chair based session

The Yoga focuses on the postures and relaxation elements of Yoga rather than the spiritual aspects favoured by some classes. There is no need to book a place, simply turn up.
Mats are provided but you are encouraged to bring your own.
