2022 State Masters Games "Play Day":

We are excited to announce that Masters Games is finally re-starting!  We have not met since the pandemic began.  But, we are very excited to see each other again.

This year’s State Games will be a “Play Day”.  There is no fee to participate.  Participants will get to play the games that are available, but no awards will be given for top winners.  If you participate in anything that day, you will be given one participation medal, regardless of how many games you played.  We will also provide free snacks and a free lunch.

Our Masters Games Play Day will be held at the Vestavia Hills Civic Center at 1090 Montgomery Hwy, Vestavia Hills, AL 35216.  It is located behind CVS.  You will turn in to the CVS parking lot and drive up the hill behind CVS to access the Civic Center parking lot.

The Rules will stay the same for all events, but (for this year only) the time frames have been shortened for some events to give everyone time to play as many events as possible during this day.  

If you are interested in competing, contact your District Representative listed below.  Click here for a registration form.  Most counties do not have transportation available so you may have to find your own way there.
