European Week of Sport “I’ve always wanted to try…”

I’ve Always Wanted to Try…

Age & Opportunity’s Active programme is offering 5 individuals and 5 groups the chance to try a new sport or activity for the first time to celebrate the European Week of Sport which runs from the 23rd – 30th September 2020 (see poster attached). Last year we teamed up with sports clubs and centres all over the country to introduce a wide range of activities including horse riding, canoeing, wall climbing, scuba diving for individuals and orienteering, trampolining, walking football, archery and pitch putt for groups.

Could you chance your arm at shot putt? Try out your fancy footwork at foot golf? Keep your head for heights while abseiling? Well then now is your opportunity…

We are also encouraging Older People to take part in the Virtual Great Dublin Bike Ride on Sunday September 27th. You can sign up at

If you have any individuals or groups who would be interested, please get in touch before Friday 28th August 2020.
