HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Have a bit of silver and interested in winning gold? The city of Henderson wants to hear from you.

The city is looking for athletes to compete in the 2013 Henderson Senior Games, a blend of sporting and social events for those over 50.

Athletes of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. Registration is open from Feb. 1 until March 15 and the cost is $15 per person, with the exception of volleyball.

There is a charge per event of between $3 and $5.

"I've often said that it's great to be 50-plus in Henderson, and programs like the Henderson Senior Games are a great reason why," said Mayor Andy Hafen. "The program draws athletes from throughout southern Nevada as well as from out of state to take part in a premier, well-organized athletic program that celebrates the athletic spirit."

The 2013 Senior Games will take place Apr. 6-28 at Henderson locations including recreation centers, parks and schools. Awards will be presented following each event.

Sports include table tennis, tennis, basketball, track and field, bowling, volleyball and, for the first time, pickelball.

Registration packets are available here.
