Special Announcement -

Dear Senior Athlete,

When we announced the sports for the 2010 Bay Area Senior Games, we did not include tennis, thinking that there were many tennis tournaments for seniors in the Bay Area....however, we received many calls from insistent tennis players and we are happy to report that we have found a tournament director, Nathan Jackman and we will be hosting tennis - April 10 and 11 at Stanford.

So please visit www.bayareaseniorgames.org and register for tennis, help us spread the word and we will see you at the Bay Area Senior Games Tournament.  Details, entry blanks and online registration are available via our website at www.bayareaseniorgames.org or call 650.323.9400 x18.

The Future of the Senior Games in California
Last summer, over 1300 California Senior Athletes competed in the 2009 National Senior Games - the most participants ever from the State of California. Many more athletes were not able to compete, because they were unable to qualify at a State Championship.  The Board of the California Senior Games is making every effort to communicate with senior athletes to encourage them to take part in the 8 regional Senior Games taking place during 2010 in California. Sites include: San Diego, Anaheim, Vacaville, Palm Desert, San Francisco Bay Area, Manteca and the first ever Winter Games at Dodge Ridge at Pine Crest. The State Championships, a qualifier for the 2011 National Senior Games in Houston, will be in Pasadena June 5 - 27. A complete list for all California Senior Games is available at www.californiaseniorgames.org.
