Sport Waikato supports and encourages our district’s seniors to have fun and be active.
There is no doubting that it’s ‘‘ move it or lose it’’ and research shows that as we age if we are active, we stay mobile with a better quality of life for many more years than our less active counterparts.
There are walking and exercise groups in all Matamata Piako towns.
