The 2018 Oregon Senior Games will be a qualifier for the 2019 National Senior Games in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are looking forward to seeing athletes from across Oregon qualify for the National Games!
Competitors from around the country will gather in Bend for an unforgettable 3 weeks 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 50+ (National Senior Games qualifying age) can compete in one of the 15 sports offered. 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 2018 must-do list!
