Go For Life Games

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 Friendly games, Leagues, and the National Games (held on one day annually). 

These games involve three sports - see below.

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

  • Lobbers- adaption of Petanque and Boules
  • Flisk- adaption of Frisbee and Horseshoe Pitching
  • Scidil-adaption of Ten-Pin Bowling and Skittles

It is important to remember:  The emphasis of the Games is on participation and fun, and played in a non-competitive way as much as possible.  


Cork Sports Partnership and the HSE South Health Promotion Department have Go For Life Games Kitbags to loan out to groups that would like to try out the games with their members. As these kitbags are limited they will be loaned out on a short term/first come first serve basis and will have to be returend to either the LSP or HSE within the agreed time frame.  

If your group is interested in availing of these please email churley@corksports.ie or call 021 4347096 to find out more information.
