Registration for the 2023 Northern Virginia Senior Olympics has hit a record number of 924, up 11% over last year. Herb Levitan, NVSO Chair, said the largest increases were in the 70-74, 75-79 and 80-84 age groups. “City of Falls Church, a jurisdictional sponsor, doubled their registration and almost all of the sponsors had increases,” Levitan said. “Table tennis and Wii bowling had over 50% increases.”
