Delivers a walking version of the fast and furious game we are familiar with. This new sport provides low impact, cardio exercise as it involves brisk walking up and down the court. Playing as part of a team brings a sense of camaraderie which is mentally challenging and rewarding.

It's what it sounds like – a classic game of basketball where players walk instead of run. It's designed to help people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle no matter their age and fitness and support people getting back into football if they have given it up due to age or injury. People who play have seen many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility. 

And it's not just health benefits - walking basketball also offers social benefits. Participants can meet new people, avoid becoming isolated and interact with individuals and small groups-This is one sporting activity that is suitable for all.
