Active Adults

[previously Reactive8 & Reactive8 Gold]

Sports programmes aimed at over 35 year olds

The Active Adults programme is ideal for those who may never have tried a particular activity before and would now like to have a go at something new, or for those people who might have tried a sport a long time ago and now want to return to an activity in a relaxed, informal environment with other like-minded people.

All sessions are organised by the Bedford Borough Council Sports Development Unit and are held at local venues situated within the Borough. The sessions are run exclusively for adults, by experienced and qualified coaches, and are all 8 weeks long.

All equipment required is provided and everyone is welcome. Come on your own or bring a friend!

If you like the sport and want to continue with it after the course has finished you will be provided with the information to enable you to do so.

  • All courses run for 8 weeks
  • All courses start week commencing 29th January (unless stated otherwise)
  • All courses are aimed at over 35 year olds
  • All courses are aimed at beginners unless specified
