The 2022 Greater Greensboro Senior Games returns this year with two events:
April 5 – May 6:
Open to all Guilford County residents 50 years of age and older. A participant must be a North Carolina resident for a minimum of three consecutive months of the year. Age on December 31, 2022 will determine the age category in which the athlete will compete. In athletics, participants will compete against others of their own sex and age as follows: 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc. In doubles, teams will be placed in age categories by the age of the youngest player.
The events promise plenty of fitness, fun, and camaraderie. The diverse events in April include a wide variety of athletic events: cycling, bowling (singles), golf, 5k run, swimming, team sports (basketball), billiards, pickleball, tennis, and much more. In May, the focus will be on the arts: performing, literary, visual arts, and more.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals will be awarded to the top three finalists in each age/sex category in each athletic event except the Fun Walk. Participant ribbons will be awarded in the Fun Walk. Ribbons will be awarded to SilverArts winners at the SilverArts Showcase.
Participants must register by Friday, March 4th at 5 p.m.
