​About Senior Games


What is Senior Games?

Senior Games was established to promote health and wellness for persons 50 and better.  Senior Games provides a forum to meet new people, enjoy healthy competition, be creative and most importantly to HAVE FUN!  Senior Games is NOT what you do compared to someone else, but what YOU do compared to what you are capable of doing.  

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation could not offer the local Senior Games without the support and guidance of host and Coordinating Agencies:
  • Alexander Graham Middle School
  • Southminster
  • Charlotte Motor Speedway
  • Levine Jewish Community Center

  • Matthews Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resource Department
  • Mecklenburg Wildlife Club
  • Park 10 lanes
