Fitness Fanatics

Fitness Fanatics runs every Thursday from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Norfolk Lodge. Led by two experienced fitness instructors, this group helps adults with learning disabilities to adopt a healthy lifestyle through exercise.

We make learning fun through different exercises including dancing, Clubbercise, team sports and circuit training, and our group leaders shape activities to help each member reach their fitness goals.

Fitness Fanatics costs £3 per session and this can be paid on the evening or monthly.

Cricket

Our Cricket group runs every Tuesday, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at Norfolk Lodge. It is led by a professional Yorkshire cricket coach, and we also offer table cricket. The sessions cost £3 which can be paid on the evening.

Snooker

We work in partnership with the World Professional Billiards Snooker association to offer our Snooker programme, which runs on Tuesdays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Norfolk Lodge. The sessions cost £3 which can be paid on the evening.

Football

We offer football training for men and women and the chance to play in matches as members of our Sheffield Mencap Lions and Lionesses football teams.

The men’s team trains at Sheffield Goals on the third Wednesday of each month and we charge £5 per session for men’s football.

Our women’s team, the Sheffield Mencap Lionesses, train at Norfolk Lodge on Monday evenings every two weeks and we charge £3 per session for women’s football.

Both teams play matches with other disability teams, which take place at various venues on Saturdays throughout the year. All sessions are led by an experienced female coach.
