Activities for adults

We offer a range of sporting activities for adults. This enables you to increase your fitness and enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Active Adults

Active Adults is a sports programme aimed at over 35 year olds. It is ideal if you want to try a particular activity or have a go at something new. It is also for you if you tried a sport before and want to return to it in a relaxed, informal environment with other like-minded people.

Download our course summary booklet (PDF) for more information about the courses.

All sessions are held at local venues situated within the Borough. The sessions are run for adults, by experienced and qualified coaches. All required equipment will be provided.

If you like the sport and want to continue with it after the course has finished, we will give you information to help you to do so.

Courses may be cancelled if numbers are low. You will be notified a minimum of seven days before the start date and offered an alternative or a full refund.

Booking open for new courses week beginning 7 June 2021

A six week block of Active Adults courses returns next month to get you back active and doing the activities we have all missed over the last year.

We hope to bring you a full programme in September, but for now bookings for the outdoor courses are now open.

To book and pay online please register and set up an account with Bedford Borough Council.

Having an account will open up more ways to communicate with the Council and allow you access to other services. It will also speed up the process of booking and paying for your course.
