Tennessee Senior Olympics

It keeps me young
We don't quit playing because we get old. We get old because we quit playing.

Let the Games Begin

Tennessee Senior Olympics

They do it to stay young – in body and at heart. For their grandchildren. To be with friends – old and new. No matter why they do it, one thing is certain: tens of thousands of senior athletes have been inspiring the rest of Tennessee for more than 30 years. And BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been proud to support them – and the Tennessee Senior Olympics – every step of the way.

Each spring, from Johnson City to Memphis, senior athletes from 10 districts across Tennessee compete for a chance at the next level – and the next medal. Every July, 2,000 of the best of these athletes meet in Franklin, Tenn., for the fun and friendly competition of the Tennessee Senior Olympics State Finals.

Every athlete of the Tennessee Senior Olympics has a story. One that inspires and reminds us that having fun and being active doesn’t have an age limit.  And that by doing what it takes to stay healthy, you improve more than just your health – you can transform your life.
