Registration for the 2019 Bullhead City/Laughlin Senior Games has officially opened. The City of Bullhead City in partnership with Laughlin is pleased to host the third annual event, especially after the success of the 2017 and 2018 events.
The 2017 games saw nearly 200 athletes, 50 years of age and better, compete in 14 different sporting events. Over $350 was raised for our community partners, including the Mohave High School’s swim and track teams, as well as the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Colorado River. In 2018 registration increased by more than 500%. Nearly 1,000 participants competed in 11 different sporting tournaments and over $800 was raised for our community partners.
The Bullhead City/Laughlin Senior Games will once again be held in January throughout the two sister communities. Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for Sunday, January 13. 12 different sporting tournaments will be held the following week in both Arizona and Nevada. The Senior Games offered this year include basketball, bowling, golfing, horseshoes, pickleball, powerlifting, softball, swimming, table tennis, volleyball, track and field, and a 5K. Based on feedback from athletes, the city has also decided to bring back the cornhole event.
Event partners are proud to make this one of the most affordable events with athlete packages starting at $30 and hotel rates starting at $18 per night in Laughlin. Athlete packages include official athlete t-shirt and swag bag, complete with vendor samples and exclusive coupons, as well as entrance to opening ceremonies, access to health screenings, and athlete refreshments at each event.
