Still a Few Days Left to Sign Up for Active Life Games
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 21, 2021) - Registration ends Friday for this year's Active Life Games, which helps promote physical and mental fitness through an Olympics-style competition that attracts hundreds of adults age 50 and older each year.
The Active Life Games, organized by Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation, began in the early 1980s, and this year's Active Life Games continue the tradition of offering a variety of contests for all skill and fitness levels. Events range from track and field to bag toss to pickleball to billiards, dominoes, and horseshoes. Individual competitions are held at a variety of locations throughout Hillsborough County.
Registration is underway and continues through Sept. 24. Cost is $15 for one event or $25 for unlimited events. There is an additional $25 charge for those participating in the golf competition, which includes a cart. This year's Games will be held Oct. 4-12.
In addition to being a lot of fun and a great way to stay in shape, the Games serve as a regional qualifier for the Florida Senior Games.
The 2020 Active Life Games were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 Active Life Games will follow CDC and County safety protocols.
