Argyle Community Trust are one of just 12 football clubs up and down the country to participate in the League’s ‘Extra Time Hub’ project – designed to combat loneliness and inactivity among the retired and semi-retired. The Extra Time Hub will harness the unique assets of the Argyle Community Trust network to bring older people together and provide a range of activities that could benefit their physical and mental health.

Argyle Community Trust’s Extra Time Hub will provide a wide range of activities for retired and semi-retired people and takes place every Wednesday between 1.30pm – 3.30pm at the Manadon Sports & Community Hub. The Extra Time Hub will provide an opportunity for retired or semi-retired people to socialise, meet new people and try activities they might not have done before. Activities are likely to include: Quizzes, competitions, guest speakers and physical activities such as boccia, walking football, table tennis, chair aerobics and many more.

As well as our Extra Time Hub we also offer sessions in walking football, new age kurling, a weight loss football league and an activity session for people with dementia. For more information on our Extra Time Hub or any other sessions we deliver please contact Ben Kerswell (ben.kerswell@pafc.co.uk).
