The ACVV Golden Games – A “Grand” Affair

The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Human Movement Science students in conjunction with the Department of Social Development hosted the annual ACVV Golden Games. The ACVV Golden Games is a sport event designed for the elderly from various communities from in and around the Port Elizabeth area. The first leg of the event took place on the 10 May 2011 at the NMMU indoor sport centre and the second leg took place on the 28 July 2011 at the NMMU athletics stadium. The event was opened with the singing of the national anthem and a mild warm up. The elderly from our community then fiercely competed in various physical and ball skill activities.
