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!


YMCA Walking Group

Members are invited to join the Y staff for our Friday-morning walking group, which will meet at various local walking spots for some exercise and socialization.

Although we plan to abide by all social distancing guidelines, all participants should bring and be prepared to wear a mask when necessary.

There is no cost for Attleboro YMCA members to participate. Please be sure to register so that we can contact you with the latest walking locations and to notify you if there are any changes due to inclement weather.

To sign up, register online or call (508) 222-7422.

Schedule:

Fridays at 10:00 am

October 16th – Nature Trail & Cranberry Bog at Bass Pro Shops, Foxboro  New location for this week due to weather! If it’s cloudy, we’ll meet at Poncin-Hewitt in Attleboro. If it’s raining, we’ll see you next week!

October 23rd – Deborah and Roger Richardson Nature Preserve, Attleboro


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.
