The 2013 Henderson Senior Games take place April 6-28 at a variety of Henderson locations including recreation centers, parks and schools. Awards will be presented following each event. Sports include table tennis, tennis, basketball skills, track and field, bowling, and volleyball. This year, for the first time, pickleball will also be available.
