  • Great article.................Thank You.

    It's always a fun time.
  • There are teams out there for just about anyone. At age 65, after two knee replacements and invasive breast cancer, I joined my first ever athletic team. Five year later I'm still with them (and have won six medals in competition). My grandson tells people that while certainly not 'new', I'm definitely not 'old'.
  • I would love to join some type of sport, but I am not very good any much of any type.
  • Would love to do this, but am afrsid I would not be an asset. Too many nasty comments and eye rolls from high school gym class.
  • It is all great ideas..but I find it difficult to be that active anymore.. I wish Sparks would focus on the aging population more
  • I did this when I was younger. Early adult life. I don't actually care to be around people anymore
  • Sounds like a good form of exercise, however, once you have a total knee replacement anything involving strenuous activity such as running is out.
  • We learn the most not by doing everything perfectly, but making mistakes and figuring out what to do next.
  • I agree with CEVIZAGACE... being an adult means I do NOT have to do the team athletic stuff I was forced to do in my youth. I am 62, and no way in H--- am I joining a team. I am enjoying adapted yoga and chair exercises, as well as extensive walking. My inner athlete is a solo walker. My primary doc and chiropractor are happy with this and so am I.

    One of the advantages of being grown up is imho not having to join a team. I hated team sports as a primary school kid and perhaps even more in high school.
  • Good article. I need to get more active and try something new
  • I am intrigued by Pickle Ball. I have been hearing about it lately, and it sounds like it would be perfect for me. I used to love to play tennis, although I was never good, it was great exercise and I enjoyed playing a game with hubby occasionally. But then I gained mega weight and couldn't move anymore, so we quit. Now, I would like to try Pickle Ball, it sounds like a low-impact version of tennis, with lighter rackets and balls, but still plenty of activity, chasing that ball around. I think it's even played on a regular tennis court.
