“Hello everyone,

The Walking Football Program will continue, initially for the  next four weeks, every Thursday 10am-12pm starting 14 July. (Day is subject to available courts at Mill Park Basketball and Netball Stadium).

Discussions with the 30+ participants who attended the program previously and participated in the Young at Heart Games Tournament, indicated that they would be attending the program.

Congratulations on a fantastic tournament. As I stood on the side lines watching, it was amazing to see how everyone’s confidence and skill levels have developed over the 7 weeks.

Attached is a program flier.

For participants, encourage your friends to attend.
