Senior Games to Return to Visalia Nov. 4-5

The City of Visalia Parks and Recreation Department has announced that the 2023 Visalia Senior Games will be held at various venues throughout the city on the weekend of November 4-5. The games will be the first since the pandemic.

"We're really excited," said City of Visalia Recreation Manager Laurissa Roggenkamp. "It's a signature event of ours and we're happy to have it back.

"It's definitely something we've been wanting to do for a while," she said, explaining that her department now has enough staff to plan and run the event.

This year's games "will somewhat mimic what we've done in the past," she said, but adding that the number of sports events offered may be less than at the last games held.

"We will bring back the most popular events first and then go from there," she said.

She encouraged those interested in volunteering, or who have a suggestion for an event, to call (559) 713-4365 or email

"If they want to be the chair of an event or an official for an event, that would be great," said Roggenkamp.

Seniors interested in competing need to wait until August 7 when more information will be posted at

"We are still putting together events," Roggenkamp said.
