The Manitoba 55+ Summer Games is coming to Brandon June 18-20th, 2024 however, the curling aspect of the games takes place in Brandon as well!
The 55+ curling event takes place March 5-7, 2024, at the Brandon Curling Club... Registration deadline has been extended to this Friday, February 9th!
Seniors for Seniors Brandon and Brandon First worked collaboratively on a successful bid for the 2024 Games and partnered with local participants in forming the host committee.
Executive Director for Brandon First, Jennifer Watson, says they're thrilled to be hosting the largest multi-sport event in Manitoba for those aged 55+ right here in Brandon!
"We're very excited to have the 55+ Summer Games come back to Brandon, and the curling especially," shares Watson. "I mean Brandon is 'curling country' and it's very near and dear to our hearts and so that's coming up pretty quick. So, if you're interested in that, definitely register and we're looking for volunteers for that portion of the games as well!"
Scheduled to take place June 18 – 20, 2024, more than a thousand athletes from all across Manitoba will gather in Brandon to participate in the largest multi-sport event in the province. The annual 55 Plus Games will run for the 41st year offering age-friendly competition in over 25 events ranging from Cribbage and Scrabble to Pickleball and Slo-Pitch. The games are open to anyone 55 years of age or older and will often see participants who are well into their 90’s.
"So, if you're really into curling and would like to come out and help with that, we will definitely take all the help we can get!" adds Watson.
Watson notes that they're also looking for sponsors for both the 55+ Games (curling spiel and summer events). "So, if you're a business and you want to get your name out there and are looking to do some sponsorship this year, we would also welcome that, and you can email us for that and we'll send you a sponsorship package that gives information on the varying levels, from low levels of commitment right up to title sponsorship."
