Doing things differently

Read on to see how sport is being done differently in your region!

Golf, but not as you know it!

BPGC - Swing FitBelvoir Park Golf Club in conjunction with Golf Victoria are currently hosting Swing Fit. Swing Fit is a fun and social modified version of golf. The program aims to introduce and encourage females to play golf regardless of their age, ability or skill level! Swing Fit sessions consist of a series of warm-up exercises, followed by some technique and hitting practice and concludes with a cool down.

Jan from Belvoir Park says “golf is not always a natural sport for ladies and often takes time to get a feel for it”. Swing Fit can be done both indoors and outdoors, and no prior knowledge of golf is needed! It is a great opportunity for the women to “have lots of laughs and meet other ladies new to the sport”. The club makes participants feel welcome by encouraging them to make themselves at home and stay for a cuppa and a chat by the fire at the end of each session.


Taking some ‘me-time’

Miss Me-time is a program currently being implemented in Bendigo with the aim of addressing the perceptions women have of sport. It is a chance for all women to have a giggle, jiggle and wiggle together while being active and having fun. Miss Me-time activities give women the chance to try a range of sports available to them in their community in a social, relaxed and non-competitive way. So far the activities have been free and women are encouraged to go at their own pace and stay for as little or as long as they like.

Participant Jacquie said “the program was very appealing to me as it was flexible, allowed me to bring my children and was free”. She likes that there is no commitment to attending Miss Me-time and was surprised how supportive and enjoyable the sessions were. Miss Me-time has inspired Jacquie and whilst still attending sessions, she has also been incorporating more exercise into her day.

Erica, another Miss Me-time participant has been enjoying how much fun the sessions are. She says “I would have never have gone to the different activities if it wasn’t for Miss Me-time”. She likes that Miss Me-time gives her the opportunity to see if a certain activity is right for her before making a full commitment. Still attending regular Miss Me-time sessions, Erica is also attending Swing Fit sessions hosted by Belvoir Park Golf Club.
