The first day of the 2017 Sumter County Senior Fitness Games got underway this morning at Crystal Lakes Golf Course as the first competition kicked off.
Though there will be many other sporting events, golf was first.
Debbie Ardis and Sharon Teigue teed off mid-morning and said they’ll participate in eight events held at both Alice Drive Middle School and Sumter County Recreation and Parks Department’s complex on Haynsworth Street.
Ardis, a Sumter native, recently introduced Teigue to the sport of golf.
“We’re really excited for the Senior Fitness Games,” said Teigue, the director of Sumter Adult Education. “We love it.”
Ron Marcelais also took part in the golf portion of the Games, which will resume at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 25 on Haynsworth Street.
On Tuesday morning, Palmetto Health Tuomey will be on hand at Haynsworth Street from 9 to 11 a.m. for free screenings of hypertension, diabetes, blood pressure.
Palmetto Health Tuomey will also offer blood pressure checks Wednesday morning at the Alice Drive Middle School track.
