Registration Is Open for 2015 Pasadena Senior Games, Where It Seems There’s No Limit to What Seniors Can Do
There is no limit to what today’s seniors can accomplish. Last year at the Pasadena Senior games, Bradford Boyd took first place in the men’s 50-meter backstroke in the 85-to-90-year-old division and Kathy Bloom won the women’s 20K road race in the 50-to-54-year-old division.
Registration is now open for nearly 30 competitive athletic events for the 2015 Pasadena Senior Games scheduled May 23 to June 28. Registration deadlines and fees vary.
“Whether they are 50 or 80 and older, active seniors know that exercise and physical activity are the keys to a long, happy and healthy life,” said Cynthia Rosedale, director of events at the Pasadena Senior Center and vice chair of the California Senior Games Association. “Senior athletes are serious competitors.”
Competitive events in the Pasadena Senior Games include archery, badminton, basketball, billiards, bowling, cycling, disc golf, fun walk, golf, horseshoe pitching, lawn bowling, pickleball, power lifting, power walking, push ups, race walk, racquetball, road race, shuffleboard, soccer, softball, strength challenge, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field, and volleyball.
Events will take place in Pasadena and a few other cities in the greater Los Angeles area.
To register and for more information visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org or call (626) 685-6724.
The Pasadena Senior Games are organized through the Pasadena Senior Center. Results of the 2014 Pasadena Senior Games are available here.
The National Senior Games Association is a nonprofit member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and governs the National Senior Games, the largest multisport event in the world for seniors.
Founded in 1959, the Pasadena Senior Center is an independent, nonprofit organization that offers recreational, educational, wellness and social services to people ages 50 and over in a friendly environment. Services are also provided for frail, low-income and homebound seniors.
