The 2022 Delaware County Senior Games are June 13-24

Released: May 25, 2022

Senior Delaware County athletes will have the chance to show off their athletic skills at the Delaware County Senior Games, which will be held June 13-24 at venues across the county.

Hundreds of athletes will compete for medals in a variety of sporting events including golf, bowling, table tennis, corn hole, horseshoes, pickleball and track and field. This year’s theme is “Play My Way” and residents 50 and older of all skill levels are encouraged to participate.

Even moderate physical activity can help older adults by improving mental capacity, preventing disease, improving healing, increasing balance and increasing life expectancy. The games encourage older residents to stay socially and physically active throughout the year and achieve their personal best. The games also foster friendships between athletes.

The 2022 Senior Games will kick off with Bocce on June 13 at Rose Tree Park. The East Delaware County Community YMCA is once again partnering with the Delaware County Senior Games by not only hosting the swim events at Ridley High School; but also offers athletes a free one-month membership to one of three local YMCAs to help them prepare for the games.

Delaware County Senior Games is sponsored by the Delaware County Board, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Delaware County Office of Senior Services (COSA). The co-chairs for the 2022 Senior Games are Marc Manfre, Director of Parks and Recreation and Barbara S. Nicolardi, Director of COSA.

Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded in each age category and all participating seniors and volunteers receive a free Senior Games t-shirt. A Winner’s Circle Luncheon Celebration will be held at the Drexelbrook Event Center on Tuesday, July 19, 2022.

Registration for the games is $15 and is open to all Delaware County residents age 50 and older. Registration is required for all events. Entry forms, schedules and more information about the games are available at the Rose Tree Park Parks and Recreation office, at local libraries and senior centers and online at www.delcoseniorgames.org.

Residents can also call Parks & Recreation at (610) 891-4663 or COSA at (610) 490-1300.
