Patrice Ayala, Professor from Midwestern University, a Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Geriatric Physical Therapy will be coming to the Marinette pickleball courts along with several of her students to teach a class on what to do to avoid a fall (fall risk) and then a little bit about the “best” way to fall.
Best way to fall is part of their “Senior Athlete Fitness Exam” (“SAFE” for short) and is made up of several little stations; taking vitals, testing walking speed ( which is highly correlated to fall risk), grip strength, shoulder and ankle flexibility, balance on even and uneven surfaces with eyes open and closed. These stations will be set up at our Fall Round Up Tournament, October 14,15 & 16, 2022 @ the Marinette Center.
Friday, August 12, 6:00-9:00 PM on the bleachers of courts 1-4.
