What is Roll Back the Clock?

Roll Back the Clock:  Aims to boost physical activity rates among Australians aged 65 and over through bowls, light exercise and education.

Health-related reasons (including physical and mental health as well as disability or poor health or injury) are the main barriers for older Australians participating in sport or physical activities.

It will get you out and about, doing fun activities, learning about good health and socialising with likeminded people. It is based around the government initiative of “Finding your 30” minutes of activity on at least 3 to 4 days each week.

Sessions will be adapted for individuals and benefits include flexibility, muscular endurance and strength and in some instances aerobic/cardiovascular exercise.

Currently, only 25 per cent of Australians over 65 meet the Department of Health physical activity guidelines of 30 minutes of activity per day.

 

Rossmoyne Bowling Club:  Will be hosting “Roll Back the Clock”, a fun and interactive health and wellness program supported by Bowls Australia starting on Wednesday, 2nd September 2020.

It aims to help seniors keep physically and socially active, combining bowls and physical and social wellbeing sessions. Sessions are flexible and are adjusted to each individual’s level of comfort by health professionals.

Perhaps you know someone who would like an easy introduction to the bowls community.
