About The Games

The NHSG is a group of sports and events that are contested by individuals and teams for competitive fun and for staying fit, healthy and meeting new friends. While the NH Senior Games are held every year, in even-numbered years you can also qualify to compete in the National Senior Games, held every odd-numbered year.  This year's games will serve as a qualifier for the 2023 National Games held in Pittsburgh, PA.

We provide 20 sports and events.  In recent years, we've added the fast-growing sports of disc golf and cornhole.  Please view our website for a complete list at https://nhseniorgames.org/sports/.

The games are held at various locations throughout NH. Thanks to a unique partnership with the Maine Senior Games, we’re proud to invite NH athletes to compete in two sports (Road Race and Cycling) in Maine. Please visit our web site https://nhseniorgames.org/schedule/ to view the schedule, details and location for your sport or event.
