About the Games

In 1991, with the support of local businesses, county & city governments, and community leaders, Polk Senior Games was organized as a public charity with the purpose of providing an annual series of competitive athletic and recreational events for men and women, ages 55 and over. The minimum age changed to 50 in 1997. In November 1992, 200 volunteers presented the first annual Polk Senior Games with 777 seniors competing in 15 sports and games. Over the years, Polk Senior Games has grown along with the age group it serves.
