SEQUENCE ballroom dancing, short mat bowls and tai chi were just some of the activities on offer at an open event for the over-50s.

The Phoenix over-50s club held the free open day at Worthing Leisure Centre in Shaftesbury Avenue on Friday, to encourage new members to sign up by showing what it offers.

Co-ordinator Jeanie Dickenson said: “It was very, very good, and everybody had an enjoyable time. It was wonderful.”

And the event went so well, the group is doing it again tomorrow, from noon to 4pm, with activities such as badminton and short tennis available for people to try.

The group meets every Friday afternoon at the centre, and new members are always welcome. Jeanie said it is a good chance for people to get fit while making friends.
