What Is Walking Basketball?

Walking Basketball is a modified version of basketball, which has a simple premise: players can only walk; players do what they can manage; and the games are about enjoyment as opposed to competition

Who is Walking Basketball For?

  • Former Players
  • Active Retirees
  • New Players
  • Those returning from injury
  • Older Players
  • Whānau wanting to play together (kids must be 12+)

When and Where is Walking Basketball, and What is the Cost?

All games will be run at Cowles Stadium which is located at 220 Pages Road, Wainoni. Games will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm until 8:30pm. The Cost will be $400 for 8 weeks (equates to $50 a week per team).

  • 20-minute running clock halves, with a three-minute half-time break
  • Free Throws – any fouls which would result in free throws are automatic points (1pt, 2pts or 3pts depending on the foul)
