The Reno-Tahoe Senior Games return on January 28, 2017 for participants in both individual and team competitions. Competitors will compete within age groups to win gold, silver and bronze medals. Registration is available now through January 20 by mail, or January 23 via in-person drop-off or online.
The free Opening Ceremony will take place on Saturday, January 28 and conclude on Valentine’s Day, February 14, with a special V-Day Dinner and Dance event at the Eldorado Resort Casino.
From such events as archery, basketball, beanbag baseball, bowling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, go-kart racing, downhill snowboard and ski racing, pickleball, shuffleboard and more, there will be opportunities to compete individually, with a partner, or as part of a team of 5-10 people.
“Keeping seniors active and engaged in a fun and healthy way is critical to our success as a community,” said City of Reno Vice Mayor Neoma Jardon, who is also a member of the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee. “We are both fortunate to be able to offer seniors the chance to compete with their fellow community members.”
Registration fees are only $25 per person, plus an additional $10-$20 per sport fee. With your registration, you will receive a Winter Games t-shirt, sport bag and a ticket to the Valentine’s Day Dinner and Dance Closing Ceremony. Additional tickets to the Dinner and Dance will be available to the public and competitor’s guests. The Games are sponsored by partner Senior Care Plus.
