Spring inclusive leisure programme

A 12-week inclusive leisure programme will take place at a number of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s leisure centres this spring.

The free programme, which will include a variety of low impact sports and activities, is funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) and has been organised by the Council to help more people in the district lead more active lifestyles.

Sports and activities on offer will include Chi-Me which involves controlled breathing and relaxation with slow, gentle movements; kurling – a form of the original curling game that is played indoors; and boccia – a game similar to bowls and pétanque. All activities on the inclusive leisure programme are suitable for people with limited mobility and can be played or undertaken in a seated or standing position.

The inclusive leisure programme will start at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen on Thursday 13 April 2017 at 1.45pm; the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown on Monday 24 April 2017 at 11.30am; Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea on Tuesday 25 April 2017 at 10.30 and Omagh Leisure Complex on Tuesday 25 April 2017 at 2.30pm. All sessions will last for one hour.
