Bend, Oregon is the Mountain Town that has it all, and that includes the Oregon Senior Games! Competitors from around the country will gather in Bend for an unforgettable week of athleticism and fun. Go ahead and use it as an excuse to plan the Bend vacation you've been thinking about. Spend your morning competing on the pickleball court, and follow it up in the afternoon by hitting the hiking trails. Play against your peers in racquetball, then reward yourself with an afternoon of whitewater rafting and a tasty craft beer along the Bend Ale Trail. The possibilities are endless, and even if you don't bring home a medal, the memories are all yours to keep.
Athletes ages 40-49 (exhibition only) and 50+ (National Senior Games qualifying age) can compete in one of the 15 sports offered (14 National Senior Games qualifiers and 1 exhibition). It's a great chance to test your mettle against other seniors while enjoying a getaway to the outdoor playground of the West. Whether you're a super-competitive athlete or just someone looking to stay active, the Oregon Senior Games is a great event to add to your 2017 must-do list!
