District 30

London

Welcome to London D30

London Senior Games - LSG - now also known as London 55+ Games, are offered annually in Summer and Winter. More than 30 one-day tournaments are held – individual & team sports such as pickleball, badminton, slo-pitch & hockey, as well as social games like shuffleboard, crokinole, euchre & 8 Ball – something for everybody aged 55+.
Going strong since 1985, thanks to the efforts of a wonderful group of volunteers and with the very generous support of the City of London Recreation Department, we continue to offer ways for older Londoners to stay active and meet new friends.  Events are held all over the city – accessible to all.
We offered a full slate of events for the London Summer & Winter Games 2023.  Winners qualified for the Ontario 55+ Games in Brantford on Aug 9-11 and in Orillia on Feb 6-8. 

We are always open to new ideas and new volunteer Board members.  We generally meet on the first Monday of the month at 2pm.  Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Mon Feb 12th at 2pm at the North London Optimist Community Centre, 1345 Cheapside St.
