Health and Fitness for Over 60s

Extra Time Project

On a weekly basis, we provide amazing opportunities for retired/semi-retired men and women over the age of 60 years, to try out different sports, at some of the best venues in and around Swindon.

As well as providing a sport/​activity on a weekly basis, we also offer a really important social activity, by proving our groups with teas and coffees at the end of each session (we even sometimes have a quiz!). 

Both groups meet on a weekly basis, with the men meeting every Tuesday morning from 10 — 12 PM, and the ladies group meeting on a Thursday morning at the same time. 

Participants regularly take part in activities such as: 

  • Golf
  • Bowls
  • Horse Riding
  • Water Polo
  • Walking Football
  • Orienteering

Some of our Extra Time participants that met at the sessions, are now members at some of our sporting partners, such as Supermarine Bowls Club and Swindon Croquet Club, showing that our group provides additional benefits to our participants.

While we were forced to put our Extra Time Programme on hold because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have now returned the programme to normal, and are once again providing our weekly sessions to our participants. Over the last 13 years Extra Time has engaged with hundreds of retired men and women, increasing their physical activity, promoting social inclusion and reducing the risk of age-related illness.

The Extra Time programme costs £17.50 per month, and covers all activities (and the tea and coffee!).
