Senior games

Seniors enjoy a game of basketball.

Thousands of senior citizens filled the Green Point Athletics Stadium to participate in the Cape Town Games for Older Persons on Tuesday April 3. Senior clubs and organisations from all over Cape Town were invited to take part in the event for people over the age of 60, with activities including bowl a hole; basket ball; duck walk; brisk walk; wheelchair pegging; and French boules. The annual event forms part of the City’s objective to encourage healthy living, active ageing and raise awareness on services available to older persons.
