55+ Games coming to town

Athletes from across the province will be coming to Kelowna next September for the 32nd annual 55+ BC Games.

The Games will run from Sept. 10-14, when the city will hold 31 different sports including tennis, hockey, soccer, swimming, golf and lawn bowling.

Kelowna's Games will feature more sports than usual, featuring triathlon, fast-pitch, sturling, and 8-Ball for the first time.

“Kelowna is an ideal host for a large multi-sport event like the 55+ BC Games,” said David Graham, president of the Kelowna event’s host society.

“Residents know that an active lifestyle is one of our community’s greatest assets and draws. Our Board of Directors believes hosting the games will reinforce that sentiment and create a long-lasting opportunity to promote living at all ages in Kelowna.”

Graham says they are looking for almost 1,500 volunteers to help put on the Games.

“An event of this scale will need additional community support,” he said. “We’re looking for people to step up and join our growing team of volunteers.”

Those interested in volunteering can register here, while those interested in competing can find more information here.
