Walking Basketball

What is Walking Basketball & who can participate?

Walking Basketball is for anyone, and everyone!

Walking Basketball was introduced as a means to provide an alternative program that allowed adults & seniors to play basketball as a form of gentle exercise. It allows people to stay involved in the sport they may have been apart of for some time, or to try a new sport altogether, and learn new skills.

Not only does it allow participants to be physically active, but also reduces social isolation and increases community inclusion. Participants of Walking Basketball can also participate in a fun, safe environment while maintaining their zest for life and confidence in their abilities.

The only rules to the game is simply, no running!

All abilities and ages are welcome. Beginners right through to seasoned ballers!!

Walking Basketball is a fun, safe and social way to get your exercise in. Grab your friends and come join the fun!

Walking Basketball Programs

Program Overview

Originating in Victoria, Walking Basketball is a fun, social way for participants to remain active. It offers a low impact alternative to exercise for participants of all abilities.

For our associations, it is a way to connect to the broader community through social inclusion, increase members and greater overall enjoyment.

The sessions last for 60 minutes and are made up of warm up, skill based drills and ‘game play’. Sessions are designed to be adaptable based on the participants skill level, fitness and mobility.

All abilities and ages are welcome. Beginners right through to seasoned ballers!!
