Love to talk about sport?

Sporting Memories clubs are for older adults to come together to talk and reminisce about sport. As well as a friendly welcome their volunteers provide fun and inclusive social and physical activities on a weekly basis. They want you to share your sporting passions with them and tell them about your favourite teams, special sporting moments and heroes. All over a cuppa and a biscuit with like-minded people.

Everyone is welcome to attend a Sporting Memories club. Some – but not all – of their members are living with dementia or low mood, or are isolated; others simply enjoy the opportunity to meet other people. If you’d like to join them, or know a family member, neighbour, or colleague who you think would benefit from coming along to a weekly club please let them know about Sporting Memories at the Royal Commonwealth Pool which starts on Tuesday 16th August.

  • Please bring a small donation each week to cover the cost of refreshments.
