The Attleboro Y has a thriving community of active older adults who make the Y and physical activity an important part of their healthy lifestyle. In fact, because we appreciate their commitment to healthy living, we offer senior members reaching their 76th birthday a membership price freeze for life!


Pickleball

All ages are welcome.

If you’ve never picked up a pickleball paddle, you don’t know what you’re missing! This cross between tennis, ping-pong, and badminton is easy to learn, but quickly brings out the competitor in all of us. This game has become very popular in retirement communities, because it allows players to maintain the thrill of competition, without some of the physical stress and injuries that other sports can cause. For more information, contact Joanne O’Brien at joanne.obrien@comcast.net.

Senior Meals

The Attleboro YMCA is proud to offer two free meals per week for seniors. The intent of this program is to support those seniors who struggle to have hot evening meals due to financial constraints, mobility constraints, health issues, and transportation issues.

As we pilot this program, we’re limited to 26 meals per night, so you must register in advance. Once we’re able to assess the feasibility of the program, we may be able to adjust the program according to the need.

Meals are available on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Register for a curbside pickup time slot or for at-home delivery. (For at-home delivery, meals will arrive 4:45-5:30 pm. At-home delivery only available to homes in Attleboro or Norton.) Please be sure to register each person who will need a meal, so we prepare the appropriate number of meals for you. To register, click on the link below or call (508) 222-7422.

Please note: On your first meal pick-up or drop-off, you will need to fill out an income verification form.
