Gainsborough Sports Centre will host the event, which will includes sports such as kurling, boccia, target badminton and short tennis.

There will be taster sessions and competitive games for people to take part in, with the aim to provide a social, relaxed space in which over 50s can play sports, keep active and make new friends.

Medals from the event will be presented by GB Paralympic boccia player Evie Edwards.

Mike McCarthy from ActivIpswich said: “The Community Games is an event for those people who thought that their sporting days were over. The games are for anyone over the age of fifty, who would like to participate in accessible sport in a relaxed atmosphere.”

Entry is £3, with more information available on 01473 345350.
