Activa programme for over 55s extends its programme
Santa Cruz city council has modified the service contract of the Madurez Activa municipal progra-mme so that people over 55 can continue to enjoy the wide agenda of free physical sports and psychomotor activities across the capital.
The agenda was resumed a month earlier than usual from Wednesday, February 19th until June 19th and will restart again in September until the end of the year in December.
The Active Maturity pro-gramme offers one-hour class-es twice a week in the morning in all districts of the city.
“This means older folk can take advantage of the recre-ational, healthy and sporting proposals we offer them, with all the possible comfort, near their homes and in the facilities of the districts in which they live,”said sports councillor, Elena Mateo.
With the aim of bringing the activities to the places of residence of people who want to enroll in them and include as many participants as possible, the sessions will be held at the Quico Cabrera Sports Hall (Salud La Salle) on Mondays and Fridays at 9.45am; the pool of Las Retamas (Ofra-Costa Sur), Mondays at 11.30am and Wednesdays at 9.45am; the Infobox of San Andrés (Anaga), on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9.45am; the Ana Bautista Municipal Pavilion (Centro-Ifara), on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11.30am; and at the Ciudad Satélite Cultural Centre (Southwest), on Wednesdays and Fridays at 11.30am.
The councillor encourag-ed all local residents of more than 55 years to join this programme “born with the vocation to promote healthy habits and oriented to increase their quality of life, not only through the practice of physical exercise, but also with the meeting of others in the sports spaces of their neighbourhoods ”.
Registration to attend classes can be formalised at the Sports offices of the City of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
