HOWZAT? WALKING CRICKET WORKS!

An 80-year-old man with T2 diabetes has

improved his health by attending Walking

Cricket sessions, proving it's never too

late to start exercising after taking part in

a series of Walking Cricket sessions.

Shirish Modi from Leicester found out

about the activity and decided he would

go along in a bid to improve his health.

He says, "I didn't really know what to

expect when I went along, but everyone

is very friendly and the exercise isn't too

demanding. I've met lots of different

people and I'm definitely feeling better

in myself from being on the go for more

than an hour every week. The sessions

are led by fully qualified coaches by the

Leicestershire County Cricket Club, so

we're playing a proper version of the

game, but just at a slower pace."

The Walking Cricket programme has

been designed for people aged over 50

who are looking for a different approach to

exercise in a bid to improve their lifestyle.

It is supported by the Leicester Changing

Diabetes programme to get people more

active, lose weight and drive down the

number of Type 2 diabetes figures in the

area.

Sunny Rohit, Project Officer at the

Centre for Black and Minority Ethnic

(BME) Health, who is organising the

cricket sessions, adds, "The Walking

Cricket sessions are proving to be hugely

successful. We've found providing a

slower paced, indoor format of the game,

is going down a storm with the older

generation, who thought that perhaps

they were too old to start getting active.

The programme is a great way for men

and women of a certain age to socialise,

while also increasing their exercise levels

at a more relaxed speed. Shirish is a

perfect example of how it's never too late."

The weekly sessions run every Friday

from 10.30am to 12pm at the Leicester

Arena on Charter Street and costs £2.50.

Free parking on site is available.

Leicester Changing Diabetes is

a partnership programme with Novo

Nordisk and the Leicester Diabetes Centre

based at Leicester General Hospital. The

global initiative Cities Changing Diabetes

was created by pharmaceutical company

Novo Nordisk and was launched in

response to the dramatic rise of diabetes

within urban areas.
