Friday is for Seniors 60 years and better!

Seniors compete for a traveling trophy on behalf of a participating retirement community or senior community center.   While beginners are very welcome, and many play just for fun and fellowship, be aware that some players are quite skilled and competitive.  You will enjoy the day more if you can attend one of the Sunday clinics preceding the event to be familiar with some of the strategies commonly used.

Registration is $30.00/team and includes lunch.  Advance registration is required by May 19.  All players compete in two morning games.  Those who qualify continue after lunch through the afternoon.  Play continues in the rain unless there is lightning, thunder or other dangerous weather conditions.

Clinics and and open play are held each Sunday beginning in April from 2:00-4:00 pm on the MHC lawn.  There is no charge or registration needed.
