Over 60? Register now for the 2017 Vintage Village Games

Residents aged 60 and over in South Oxfordshire will again have the chance to compete in their very own indoor games.

Following the successful launch last year, the Vintage Village Games returns to southern Oxfordshire for 2017.

The Vintage Village Games will see people try fun and friendly team games of indoor Croquet, Skittles, New Age Bowls and New Age Curling and the closest event to Henley will take place on Wednesday 12 July at Nettlebed Village Club between 10am and 12.30pm.

To sign up for the Vintage Village Games, or for more information, please call 01235 422219 or email participation@southandvale.gov.uk.

The Vintage Village Games sessions are being organised by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils as part of their GO Active Gold initiative which helps people aged 60 and over live more active lifestyles by offering physical activities to those in rural areas.

Cllr Lynn Lloyd, Cabinet Member for Leisure Services at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “The Vintage Village Games were a real highlight of the Go Active Gold calendar last year so I’m delighted that four more villages get to take part in 2017.”
