SU Holds 16th Annual Eastern Shore Senior Games, May 1-2
SALISBURY, MD---Seniors from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia converge on Salisbury University for the 16th annual Eastern Shore Senior Games.
Events are Friday-Saturday, May 1-2, at Maggs Physical Activities Center and the SU athletic fields, and other locations throughout the community.
Competitions, open to those age 50 and older, include aquatics, cycling, golf, pickleball, a 5K run, tennis, track and field, and volleyball.
An Athlete Recognition Social is 4-6 p.m. Friday, May 1, in the Perdue Hall Atrium to honor the participants who make the games possible and allow them to socialize. Hors d’oeuvers will be served. Free fitness testing is 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 2, in Maggs Room 206.
According to the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, 85 percent of seniors in the United States do not exercise as much as they should. Other seniors have made staying in shape a social affair, using events like the Senior Games to keep in touch with old friends and make new ones. In recent years, hundreds have competed in the games.
Admission to the games is free for spectators, and the public is invited. For more information call 410-677-0058, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Eastern Shore Senior Games Web site at www.salisbury.edu/seniorgames or Facebook page at www.facebook.com/EasternShoreSeniorGames.
