For over thirty years, the Westmoreland County Senior Games has grown by leaps and bounds. The slogan for the games has been “bring a friend for fun and fitness.” The senior population has taken that to heart as the Games have had more athletes than ever in recent years. The goal of the games is to encourage an active lifestyle and continued participation in recreational activities beyond age 50.
The Games are more about fun and fitness than serious competition. The majority of people who participate in the Senior Games are not drawn to it for the competition - they like the fellowship and fun atmosphere. A lot of people think that they have to be a super athlete to come to the Games, but that is not the case.
