Let the Active Life Games Begin
Same games, new name for the Fit, Fun and 50+
Registration is now open for the 2018 Tampa Bay Active Life Games. The games will build upon the thrill of competition and camaraderie of previous years. Only the name has changed.
The 38th annual Olympic-style competition gives adults 50-plus a chance to test their skill in activities ranging from bunco, dominoes, and bag toss to pickle ball, cycling, and traditional track and field events. Whether you're a natural athlete, weekend warrior, or seek more recreational pursuits, there's something for every skill level in the Active Life Games. If you're somewhat fit in mind, body, or both, embrace fun, and will be at least 50 years old by the end of 2018, you're qualified to enter the games. Some of the 25 events are qualifiers for the state level competition.
