Free programme to help women get active at Castle Park Leisure Centre

Published: 9th January 2017

A new initiative designed to help women who take little or no exercise to get active will start at the Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea later this month.

The free 12 week health and exercise programme, which is part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme and is part funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will start at the Castle Park Leisure Centre on Friday 20 January 2017 at 7 pm. Weekly sessions will last for one hour.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, said:

“Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is pleased to work in partnership with Sport NI as part of the Every Body Active 2020 programme to create these opportunities for women to get active more often and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle. Leading an active lifestyle is good for the body and the mind and I encourage women keen to embrace a more active lifestyle to sign up to this free programme.”

Sport Northern Ireland Interim Chair, Brian Delaney, commented:

“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working together over the next 4 years on the delivery of Strand 1 of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often.”

Places on the women’s activity programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Participants must be aged 18 and over and will be required to complete a pre-exercise questionnaire.
