Group News

New Group Planned: Walking Football
Walking football is a slower version of the National game. Games are usually played in teams of 5 or 6 and can be played indoors or outside. Any running is penalised and there is no contact allowed between players. Games can be 15 to 25 minutes each half and substitutes can be used at any time. Women welcomed. To join in the fun email groups@bramhallu3a.org.uk.

Adventure Group
This month eight intrepid adventurers went indoor flying at Ifly, Manchester. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and have the photos, videos and certificates to prove it! Great instructor and staff at Ifly. They made us very welcome. Most of us took the option of 'flying high' ie: to the top of the chamber! We all gained @white fliers' status!


01/02/18 - Expires 30/03/18

New Group Coming - PICKLEBALL
Pickleball is a recently developed sport that is growing in popularity especially among older players. It borrows elements from badminton (the court), tennis (the lower net) and table tennis (similar bats and a light plastic ball). The rules of Pickleball have been specially drafted to reduce aggression and to emphasise placement, positioning and tactics rather than strength and athleticism. Pickleball is an ideal recreation for those who have played any ball sport in the past and who enjoy a little bit of competitive sport without wishing to be over-exerted. It is normally played as doubles but singles are also popular. The full rules of the sport are available, with further background, by googling 'Pickleball wiki' and you may be interested to see a training video by clicking here or by googling 'Pickleball Martis'.

No experience is necessary as full coaching and demonstration sessions have been planned. If you are interested to join please email groups@​bramhallu3a.org.uk.


25/01/18 - Expires 28/02/18

Fitness & Flexibility Group
The Fitness and Flexibility group resume at the scout hut, Fir Road, Bramhall on Monday 8th January at 9.45 am. The class is a fun workout which is suitable for all levels. You can work at your own pace and injuries are taken into account. If you wish to join email groups@​bramhallu3a.org.uk or drop in on the day.

06/01/18 - Expires 31/01/18

Canasta Group
Canasta is an easy game to learn and it would be good to introduce it to some people who want to learn from scratch. Currently nearly all our members have happy memories of playing in our youth, but we can recommend it to anyone who enjoys a relaxing card game, free from reliance on a sharp memory as most of what we need to know in order to decide the next move is generally on the table and visible to all. The skill is in deciding just what the next move should be.
If you want to give it a try please get in touch and join one of our regular sessions, or have a one to one lesson beforehand.

21/11/17 - Expires 28/02/18
