Go for Life Games
Throughout the year, Longford Sports Partnership, in conjunction with Age & Opportunity run a number of Go For Life Games programmes for older adults.
The aim of the Go for Life Games is to involve older people in recreational sport. The games are run locally with the support of Age & Opportunity. The Games involve the National Games (held on one day annually), Leagues and Friendly games.
The Go for Life Games adapted by Go for Life involve three sports that can be played in Singles, Pairs and Teams.
- Bags – adaption of the cornhole game.
- Flisk - adaption of Frisbee and Horseshoe Pitching
- Scidil - adaption of Ten-Pin Bowling and Skittles
It is important to remember that the emphasis of the games is on participation and fun, and played in a non-competitive way as much as possible.
