Greater Victoria 2022 55+ BC Games
“MEET THE MOMENT.”
“You will ‘meet the moment’ as an important part of our coming together, spotlighting the beautiful region we call home and showing it off to our fellow British Columbians.”
Greater Victoria Host Society
Meet the Moment.
In September 2022, Greater Victoria will welcome participants from across British Columbia for the 33rd 55+ BC Games. This will be the first time Greater Victoria will be a Games host.
Participants, volunteers and those cheering in the stands come together to meet this moment in time. For the past year and a half we’ve been isolated from friends and loved ones as we collectively battle a pandemic. Now, we celebrate not only our chance to reconnect in person, but our ability to transcend the challenge and emerge stronger, fitter and more committed to the importance of community spirit and togetherness.
The Games run September 13 – 17 and feature more than 30 sports, including tennis, hockey, soccer, swimming, golf and lawn bowling.
