Let the Active Life Games Begin
Registration is now open for the 2018 Tampa Bay Active Life Games. The games will build upon the thrill of competition and camaraderie of previous years. Only the name has changed.
The 38th annual Olympic-style competition gives adults 50-plus a chance to test their skill in activities ranging from bunco, dominoes, and bag toss to pickle ball, cycling, and traditional track and field events. Whether you're a natural athlete, weekend warrior, or seek more recreational pursuits, there's something for every skill level in the Active Life Games. If you're somewhat fit in mind, body, or both, embrace fun, and will be at least 50 years old by the end of 2018, you're qualified to enter the games. Some of the 25 events are qualifiers for the state level competition.
A $30 registration fee allows participants to compete in as many events as they choose, with the exception of golf, which has a $55 registration fee and includes a cart. Opening Day festivities and an awards luncheon are included with either registration.
Think you're not quite ready to go up against your peers? Need to perfect your golf swing, polish up your bowling technique, or brush up on your bunco game? There's plenty of practice time left. The games begin on Friday, Oct. 5, and conclude on Oct. 19
Registration for Tampa Bay Active Life Games will continue through Wednesday, Sept. 19. Visit HCFLGov.net/ActiveLife for the complete schedule of events and registration information.
Tampa Bay Active Life Games are hosted by Hillsborough County, City of Tampa, City of Temple Terrace, and Friends of the County Parks.
