Flier for Medicare Education Session

If you’re 50 or “better,” there’s no finer way to stay active than to participate in the Piedmont Plus Senior Games and Silver Arts.

The Piedmont Plus Senior Games and Silver Arts are a year-round wellness and education program. Every April the program culminates with athletic, art, craft and performance competitions that draw hundreds of participants.

The Piedmont Plus Senior Games offer 38 athletic and skill events, including traditional track and field events, team sports such as basketball and softball, recreational sports such as golf and bowling, and tests of skill such as football throwing and spin casting.

Competitions are organized by gender and by age: 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc. Mixed pairs are allowed in select events, such as bowling, pickleball and tennis. Gold, silver and bronze medalists for each event qualify for the North Carolina Senior Games, held in Raleigh during September. Medal winners at the state games qualify for the national games held every other year.

For seniors not interested or physically able to compete in sports or games, Silver Arts competitions are offered in 32 categories of heritage, visual, performing and literary arts, including painting, singing, needlecrafts and photography. Silver Arts participants also compete for medals.

Winning a medal is exciting, but the Senior Game and Silver Arts offer much greater rewards for everyone who participates. The games promote an active lifestyle, fun, and fellowship!
