The annual Wellington Senior Regional Games was held on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. This event allowed older folks to participate in light-exercise sports and activities such as badminton, cornhole, dancing, indoor bowls, pickleball, table tennis, walking netball, and spin poi in a safe setting.
For some, it was an opportunity to try new sports and activities; for others, it was a chance to participate in activities they already knew and loved; and for the most, it was an opportunity to connect and enjoy a day filled with fun and laughter. The ASB Sports Centre hosted over 120 seniors aged 65 to 86.
This is not a competitive event – it's all about having fun and focusing on what our bodies can do, not what they can’t. The event helps kaumātua build confidence and celebrate physical activity, no matter their age, fitness, or physical ability.
We look forward to having you next year. View the 2022 highlights video below!
