More than 500 over 55-year-olds took part in the 2012 Better Club Games, held at Brixton Recreation Centre on Friday 19 October 2012.

The 'mini Olympics' was eventually won by a team from Epsom and Ewell, while the Lambeth team triumphed in the individual dominoes and short mat bowls events.

The annual event was run by charitable Social Enterprise GLL and hosted for the fourth year running in the London Borough of Lambeth.

It aims to encourage older people to become more active and to highlight the social and physical benefits that sporting activities can offer to individuals of all ages.

Participants took part in nine sporting events ranging from Badminton, Short Tennis, Swimming, Timed Cycle, Dominoes, Darts and Short & Long Mat Bowls.

Proudly representing their boroughs the teams hailed from the London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Greenwich, Ealing, Lambeth, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hackney, Merton, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Westminster, Waltham Forest, Epsom and Ewell as well as Crystal Palace National Sports Centre and Rivermead Leisure Centre.

The winning team Epsom and Ewell team held on to the champions' title for the second year running. Team Greenwich came a close second and Team Tower Hamlets came third.

Mark Sesnan, GLL Managing Director, opened the event, while boxer and Olympic Gold Medallist Anthony Joshua spoke to competitors and presented the prizes.

In addition to the sporting activities, entertainment on the day included a tap dancing display from the Rainbow Tappers and free massages were on offer courtesy of Spa London.

Sue Robinson, organiser of the Club Games said: "The annual Club Games is in its seventh year and we have hundreds of competitors and spectators representing all of our partnerships.

"This year has been by far the largest games and what is great is that anyone can take part regardless of their skill or ability; all that's needed is for competitors to be over the age of 55 years.

"GLL continues to encourage and promote a healthy and active lifestyle for older people through our Better Health & Fitness concessionary membership and Community Development team."
