Soft Tennis

Soft Tennis

A fun game for Over 50s that will keep you fit and socially active.

Soft Tennis is for men and women that are 50+ and want to get moving.

Soft Tennis is an easy to learn game that uses motor skills when hitting a ball that is softer and larger than a normal tennis ball and we always play doubles on an indoor badminton court.

Plastic paddle bats are used for Soft Tennis and the bats can be purchased from the group. Spare bats are available for new players to have a try. 

  • A social game that has no commitments - turn up whenever you want to play.
  • First session is free and then $3 per day.
  • Mondays and Fridays from 10:00am-11:30am followed by a catch up at a local Cafe.

Steady Feet

Steady Feet

Get active at our weekly Steady Feet program. 

Steady Feet is a specifically designed exercise program for ages 60+ to take part in a safe, fun and social way.

Steady Feet has been developed for men and women who have health risk factors or pre-existing injuries. The program has been designed by health professionals and is led by specifically trained instructors who can alter the program for participants if required. The program delivers low to moderate intensity workouts incorporating gentle aerobic movements, weight bearing, and resistance exercising stretching.

Steady Feet classes are located at two great locations

  • Meredith Community Centre: Wednesdays at 10:00am - 11:00am
  • Dereel Community Hall: Wednesday at 11:45am - 12:45pm

A doctor’s certificate is to be provided and details given to our Y instructor for injury description and limitations.

The program focuses on delivering safe, low to moderate intensity work-outs incorporating gentle aerobic movements, weight-bearing or resistance exercise and stretching - all of which help improve strength, balance, and self-confidence. It’s also a great way to meet new people, as Rose attests.
