Healthy Walks

Each hour long session offers different routes, allowing people to further explore Ferndown.  The walks are designed to get people into a weekly exercise routine, as well as give them the perfect opportunity to socialise. 

Tuesday 10.00am - 11.00am     Free

Nordic Walking 

Walking with poles uses 90% of your major muscles and you burn 20-40% extra calories.  Pressure is taken off the knees and joints allowing you to get the most out of your walk. You need to have completed a 4 week 45 minute walking course teaching you the correct technique before you take part in our weekly walks at various countryside and seaside locations in Dorset.

Always & Forever Active 50+

Come and join the always active dryside class for over 50s and enjoy a very social workout.  Then try the forever active pool session for a fun all round body workout.  You can take part in either both or which ever class you prefer. Table tennis, racketball, and squash are also available or enjoy a swim or a workout in the gym (gym induction required for gym use).

Why don't you end your session with a chat and a coffee in our cafe so that you can get to know new like minded people.

Oli's Roller Disco

Roller discos - Every Sunday.

We welcome everyone to our roller discos - families, pre-booked groups, parties and individual skaters.

3.00-4.30pm – Suitable for all ages and abilities, ideal for new skaters and families who prefer a slower pace.  We allow ‘walkers’ on the rink during this session to help a learner if required.  Our skate guards are on hand to offer advice and support throughout the session. 

This disco is great fun for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re a novice skater or returning to skating after a break, come along with the family or on your own to join in the fun.  There will be great music and lighting, why not ask the DJ for your favourite song, also lots of games suitable for all. 

5.00-6.30pm – All ages and abilities are welcome.  This is a faster paced session and more suited to people with some skating ability, no ‘walkers’ on the rink during this session.  Each week we play some roller games like bulldog (mad dash from one end of the rink to the other without being tagged by a skate guard) and some speed skating.  

Prices – For each roller disco session

£3.95 p/skater.

£14 – Group of 4

Spectators – No charge

Equipment Hire

£1 for skate hire (Junior Size 6 up to Adult Size 12 available)

£1 for safety sets – knee/elbow/wrist (Kids & Adult sizes available)

Walking Football

Is a variant of association football that is aimed at keeping people aged 50+ involved with football if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reason, they don’t play the traditional game. The sport can be played both indoors and outdoors, we currently run sessions in the sports hall.  The key difference in the rules, from standard football, is that if a player runs then they concede a free kick to the other side.  The sport promotes cardiovascular fitness whilst producing the least stress on the body.  It also assists in maintaining an active lifestyle.

Thursday 7.00-8.00pm
