Senior Games promotes and encourages seniors to stay fit in body, mind and spirit while enjoying the company of friends, family, spectators, and volunteers. You can choose from over 40 athletic events like Track and Field, Swimming, Pickleball, Tennis, Cycling and more! And you don't need to be an "athlete". Come join us and play Bocce ball, Horseshoes, Shuffleboard, Cornhole, Table Tennis, Golf and Bowling because our goal is simple - "Fun, Fitness, Fellowship and Family".

In addition to athletic events we offer a SilverArts competition. This is a "Celebration of the Creative Expression of Seniors". You can choose from over 35 Artistic categories to participate in including Photography, Painting, Dancing, Singing, Writing, Woodworking, Quilting and Pottery just to name a few! Schedule of Events
