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.

Pickleball is free for Attleboro Norton YMCA Members. Non-Members must purchase a Day Pass ($12 per adult, $8 per senior) to play.

Tai Chi for Seniors

Tai = big or great. Chi = ultimate energy. Tai Chi is an ancient form of Chinese exercise consisting of slow, beautiful, relaxed movements that develop a sense of balance and harmony between mind and body. Practicing tai chi can improve balance, stability, and flexibility for seniors.

We’re excited that Ed Poirier will now offer this great class to all senior members of the community at our new location – the Sweet Community House on Peck Street.
