|Intense competition in Scrabble.|
Five new competitions have been added this year: orienteering, Rummikub, Sudoku, 100-yard breaststroke, and a spelling bee.
Events are held throughout the region at 20 venues, including the Audrey Moore RECenter in Annandale. Many events have separate competitions for men and women and for different age groups. The Senior Olympics is a great way to meet new players, learn about local recreational opportunities, and get motivated to work out.
The Northern Virginia Senior Olympics is sponsored the cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, and Fairfax and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, and Prince William.
