A letter to You from NC Senior Games

Dear Senior Games Participant,

We hope you are having a healthy New Year as you prepare for the 2020 Local Games! Now is the time to contact your Local Games Coordinator to ensure you register in time for your Local Games. Remember you must participate in a Local Games to have the opportunity to qualify for State Finals. Contact your Local coordinator for a Local Games Entry Form. The Local Games page of our website has lots of helpful information about each Local Games.
In addition, we are pleased to announce:  The State Finals Tennis Tournament will again be hosted at the Raleigh Racquet Club with Har-tru courts.
The State Finals Pickleball Tournament will be hosted by Cabarrus County Senior Games at Carolina Courts in Concord, NC.
The State Finals Golf Tournament will again be held at Tanglewood. However, the tees for all players will be moved forward for more enjoyable golfing experience. Approximately 700 yards will be removed from the length of the courses. Women and men 80+ will continue to play from the forward tees and all other men from the senior tees.
See the 2020 edition of the NCSG Rules Book for any sports changes. It has it's own "Summary of Changes" page in it.

Best of luck as you train and compete in your Local Senior Games. We hope to see you at State Finals!!
