World peace, health, and friendship. Yes, that’s the mission of the Huntsman World Senior Games. And, this year it will be over 25 years worth.
There are various sports for those aged 50 and older and yes, the basketball is still very competitive. You should go watch them. My favorite is pickle ball but here is a list of the many sports in the games:
Cowboy Action Shoot (huh? Yeah, I don’t know either)
Track & Field
The senior games is a community wide event. The locations of the sports are held all around St. George including: Green Valley Resort, Bloomington CC, and The SunRiver Retirement Community.
Yes, there are even 90 year old sprinters. Watch this video to check them out. Pay attention or you just might miss them – they are that fast.
A group of seniors in a hotel is not fun. See the link to the right to book the best place to stay for the senior games. Your entire group can stay in a condo or 2 and be very comfortable.
