The National Senior Games Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the health and wellness of athletes 50 years and older, has moved its headquarters to Kissimmee from Baton Rouge, La.
What that means for Florida is that five new National Senior Games Competitions, which attract some 11,000 athletes, will be held here through 2025.
The move is part of the organization's expansion, which includes having national competitions every year instead of every other year starting in 2016.
Participants compete in archery, badminton, basketball, bowling, cycling, golf, horseshoes, pickleball, race walk, racquetball, road race, shuffleboard, softball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track & field, triathlon and volleyball.
The 2013 National Senior Games will be held in Cleveland from July 20-Aug. 1. More information is available at nsga.com.
