Athletes compete against others in the same age and gender categories in a variety of events that include: bowling, swimming, horseshoes, cycling, track and field, croquet, bocce, shuffleboard, miniature golf, and many others. This year, several individuals have registered for the newest game called Pickleball. The games end on May 2.
