Our Move It AUS grant programs are focused on building more active environments, improving the health and wellbeing of older Australians and targeting communities with high inactivity levels.

They’re a team of walking basketballers – and they play a game that’s enjoyed a recent explosion in popularity across the state. What may be surprising is the average age of participants – 75 years young.
