The aim of the Go for Life Games is to involve older people in recreational sport. The games are run with the support of Local Sports Partnerships and the HSE.
The Games involve the National Games (held on one day annually), Leagues and Friendly games.


The Go for Life Games adapted by Go for Life involve three sports, flisks, sciddils and bags, that can be played in Singles, Pairs and Teams.

It is important to remember:

The emphasis of the Games is on participation and fun

Played in a non-competitive way as much as possible

Participants encouraged to umpire their own game
