Approximately 250 Bucks County seniors competed in the 34th Annual Bucks County Senior Games held Monday, June 6th through Saturday, June 11th. Age categories consisted of 50 to 59, 60 to 69, 70 to 79, 80 to 89, and 90 plus. This year’s oldest participant was a 95-year-old Doylestown resident who competed in bocce, pinochle and billiards.
This weeklong event, hosted in partnership with the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging (BCAAA) and the Bucks County Department of Parks & Recreation, gave seniors the opportunity to demonstrate their athletic and intellectual abilities.
According to William R. McTigue Jr., Administrative Officer for Public Affairs at Bucks County Area Agency on Aging and an organizer of the Senior Games, this year’s most physically challenging game was the track & field, which included 100-meter sprints.
Seniors looking for less rigorous activities could register for bridge, pinochle, darts and a trivia contest. Other activities included bowling, tennis, table tennis, bocce, billiards and golf.
