Seniors training for games
THEY may not be Olympians or triathletes but the determination to succeed among seniors at Mercy Place in Mandurah cannot be disputed.
Ten residents have formed a team to compete in the 2017 Aged Care Games and training is in full swing, with hockey and skittles at the top of the list.
During the annual event, dozens of teams from aged care homes compete to gain the highest score for a chance of winning the perpetual trophy.
Service manager Christina Venables said the team was practicing regularly.
WHEN it’s too cold to go to the beach, visit the beach at Mandurah Forum. The Kids Beach Hut play area near the Coffee Club is a new arrival at the complex and has a giant octopus and beach ball pit . It is intended for three to six-year-olds and is open every day.
