The 19th annual WV Senior Sports Classic will be held in Charleston on June 21, 22 and 23. The events include golf, tennis, bowling, bike races, track and field, swimming and 14 other sports. The events are open to anyone 50 or older.
The first four finishers in each event qualify to participate in the 2013 National Senior games to be held in Cleveland. The states qualifying events are the only way to qualify for the National games.
Participation is by age group in five year increments such as 50 − 54, 55 − 59 and on up; so one will be competing with athletes in one’s own age group.
The racquetball event will be held at the new state of the art Shepherd University Wellness Center on June 23. This is the only event not held in the Charleston area.
One can sign up for any event at the WVSSC web site at www.wvssc.com.
