This year, the North Island Zone sent 431 participants to the 55+ BC Games in Kelowna, the highest attendance to date. North Island athletes came home with 254 medals.
As an incentive to get involved and share all the positive experiences that come with partaking in the 55+ BC Games, Comox Recreation is hosting Give It A Try, on Saturday, Oct. 19 from noon – 2:30 p.m. at the Comox Community Centre, 1855 Noel Ave.
In association with the BC Recreation and Parks Association and the 55+ Games, the event will feature four sports and games included in the upcoming 2020 Games in Richmond, next Sept. 15-19. Pickleball, badminton, table tennis and cribbage will be on site for anyone 54 and older wanting to give these sports and games a try.
No experience is necessary.
If you’re an athlete from the past, or wish to learn a new activity, this is your chance to come, participate, learn and have some fun with our expert mentors ready to encourage and inspire you.
The event is free and pre-registration is required. Call the Comox Community Centre at (250) 339-2255, and quote barcode #10006. Space is limited.
Refreshments will be provided, and prizes for those who participate in the four activities.
