Welcome to The National Vintage Games, the UK's first competitive and recreational sports event for the over-50s!

Sunday 2 September 2018 @  Bath University Sports Training Village

The National Vintage Games is the UK’s first multi-sport event specifically for the over-50s. Established in 2017, it aims to be bigger and better than last year. I’ve really listened to your feedback and included new team events such as walking rugby and walking netball, as well as official adjudication and optional age-group classifications. If competitive sport isn’t your thing, then why not try the exercise classes like Pilates, spin cycling and yoga. To top it all, The National Vintage Games is fortunate to have the world-renowned University of Bath Sports Training Village as its venue.

The Games philosophy is simple: to provide an enriching sports experience for ALL members of the over-50s community, regardless of aptitude or ability. It may have been a while since you ran, cycled, swum, or indeed did any exercise at all. Don’t worry, come and give the events a go! Engaging in sport can seem daunting as we get older, but The National Vintage Games seeks to create a relaxed, friendly environment; a space where you will feel respected and appreciated for your efforts. We all have a role to play here: a successful Games is one where you’re helpful and supportive of others.

All abilities and fitness levels are heartily welcome. So, what are you waiting for? Dust off those trainers, don your swimmers and get involved!
