Detroit has its very own senior olympics, and if you are at least 50 years of age, you’re invited.

This is the 32nd year for the Detroit Senior Olympics, happening from June 13-15 and put together by the Detroit Parks and Recreation Department.

If you want to see how you match up against others your age in various games, events and sports like golf, bowling, swimming, basketball, track, and horseshoes, frisbee toss, table tennis, as well as non-sporty activities like arts & crafts and baking, here’s your chance.

To be clear – we clarified with organizers and you do not need to be a city of Detroit resident to participate, although the event is in the city.

If you register by June 10 you’ll receive the early bird registration rate of only $15.  The on-site registration fee is $25.

Register in person any Detroit recreation center during normal operating hours at the Northwest Activities Center located at 18100 Meyers Rd between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; or by mail by Friday, June 10.  Participants may also register on-site at Williams Recreation Center, 8431 Rosa Parks Blvd., on June 14, or at Adams/Butzel Complex, 10500 Lyndon, on June 15.

For a complete schedule of events and registration form, please see the Detroit Senior Olympics brochure on the City of Detroit Web site at
