Please note that the 2015 schedule and information for the DC Senior Games (DCSG) has been updated and is listed below.

The DC Senior Games is an annual competition, hosted by DPR and sanctioned by the National Senior Games Association (NSGA), which brings together seniors from across the District to participate in athletic activities, thereby promoting healthy living for a longer, more robust life. More than 80 athletes competed in last year's 2014 DC Senior Games. Each year, the DC Senior Games features activities including: basketball, bowling, horseshoe toss, pickleball, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field.

Last year at the 31st Annual DCSG we added a new, popular sport - Pickleball.  We are pleased to announce that pickleball has been permanently added as a DCSG event.  Pickleball is a racket sport in which two to four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a polymer perforated ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports, the dimensions and layout of a Badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications. One of the fastest growing sports in North America, Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children's backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all skill levels.
