In the fall of 2016 a committee was formed of MSU faculty, staff and administrators and planning for the re-launch of the North Texas Senior Games commenced.
To re-introduce the games to the Wichita Falls community we developed a one-day event with six to seven events (Basketball, Bowling, Horse Shoes, Pickleball, Table Tennis, & Tennis). The event was called the Senior Sports Festival and was held on the campus of MSU and Village Bowling Lanes the weekend after graduation (May 17, 2017). Although the event was small it did fan the flames of desire to get a full slate of events for the games to Wichita Falls in 2018. We are excited about the possibilities that will come from hosting the games again and look forward to working with the Texas Senior Games Association and the National Senior Games Association once again.
The 2018 North Texas Senior Games will be May 17 – 20, 2018 on the MSU campus, Garnet Track at McNeil Junior High School, River Creek Golf Course, Village Bowl and the Wellness Center at the Rehab.
