Senior Olympics offers clinics to keep you in shape


Staying in shape and staying active can be a challenge as we get older.

New Mexico Senior Olympics has a series of sports clinics scheduled in Las Cruces and elsewhere around the state in October and November.

These clinics allow seniors age 50 and older to get back out there and exercising after the Coronavirus shutdown. Clinics are $10.

On Saturday, Oct. 16, seniors can learn the basics of the sport of pickleball, which has been exploding in popularity in recent years, or improve their game if they are already familiar with the sport. Two sessions will be held at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the NNSU Activity Center, 1600 Stewart St. Clinics will be led by Felix Rabanal, a certified pickleball instructor and USA Pickleball member.

Also, Saturday, Oct. 16, there will be a horseshoe clinic starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Matt Youngblood Horseshoe Courts, 1800 East Hadley. Sean Blair, a horseshoe advocate, will lead the session.

On Nov. 10, Senior Olympics will host an Intramural Day at NMSU that includes free-throw shooting, shuffleboard, walking, cornhole and soccer kick. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the NMSU Activity Center, and a sack lunch will be provided.
