PEOPLE aged over 50 are invited to try ‘exciting and gentle activities’ coming to South Yorkshire.

Rotherham Council is introducing new-age kurling and boccia as part of its Active Always programme - new-age kurling is a form of curling, but adapted so it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, while boccia is similar to bowls, but played on a smaller surface.

The sessions are taking place at Maltby Leisure Centre every Tuesday, from 11am to noon, priced £2.85 per session, and at Herringthorpe Stadium every Wednesday, from 10am to 11am, at a cost of £2.50.

A council spokesman said: “The Rotherham Active Always programme is aimed at providing a range of activity in community settings to help improve the health and wellbeing of adults and older people.”
