Active Ageing

Active Ageing Table Sport

Welcome to the Active Ageing Page

The aim of the Active Ageing Officer role at Newcastle Eagles Community Foundation is to provide the opportunity for social interaction and physical activity for all people aged 55 and above regardless of ability.  The program is designed to enable you to take part in a wide variety of experiences and see which work for you.  Whether this be working up a sweat in Walking Basketball or having a gentle game of Table Tennis and a cuppa at Table Sports Tuesday, we believe there will be something for you.

Neil Curry is our Active Ageing Officer and has a wealth of knowledge within sports development and increasing physical activity through his roles initially in local football and cricket clubs through to sport development roles within Newcastle City Council and Gateshead Council. During these roles Neil has ran events for all ages and abilities, with recent projects including Boccia Leagues and tournaments alongside regular walking sports programs.

As listed below you will see that we have a range of sessions available and we can guarantee a warm, friendly welcome every time you attend the Eagles Community Arena.

These sessions will take place both at our new Vertu Motors Arena just off Scotswood Road as well as out in other community locations.

Come in for a coffee at in the Eagle Eats Cafe and take a look around the home of the Eagles Community Foundation.

Active Ageing Sessions:

Our existing sessions are:


Table Sport Tuesday (Every Tuesday from 5th October – 10:30 – 12 noon) £3

Come along for a cuppa, a chat and some light activity.
