Before 2014, Oregon was one of only two states without a sanctioned State Senior Games. This event, which is presented by Humana, hosted by Visit Bend (http://www.visitbend.com/Bend_Oregon_Activities_Recreation/Oregon-Senior-Games/), and sponsored by PickleballCentral.com (http://www.pickleballcentral.com/), the Pickleball Rocks Team (http://www.pickleballrocks.com/) and The Racquet Shoppe (http://www.theracquetshoppe.com/), is officially sanctioned by the National Senior Games Association and will be held June 19-22 in Bend, Oregon. Athletes ages 50 and older can compete in one of the fourteen sports offered, including pickleball. It’s a great chance to test your mettle against other seniors while enjoying a getaway to the outdoor playground of the West. Whether you’re a super-competitive athlete, or just someone looking to stay active, the Oregon Senior Games is a great event to add to your bucket list.
