The city’s first Walking Sports Festival has been launched by a Leicester team committed to health and wellbeing.

The free event, taking place on Friday, May 17 at the Morningside Arena from 1030am to 12pm, will give attendees the chance to take part in taster sessions of walking basketball, cricket and football. The professional sports clubs behind each activity will run the sessions.

Walking Sports are designed for people over 50 who are looking for a different way to build more activity into their life.
