We interviewed 15 men and 11 women (69.62 ± 6.54 years) through a semi‐structured interview later analyzed in the light of Content Analysis. Results are expressed in categories: social interaction, health care, combating sedentary lifestyle, adherence and retention in physical exercise programs. These denote that such interventions are perceived by elderly as an opportunity to improve health and socialization. Active participation as a coauthor in formulation contributed to adherence and retention. Thus, recreational and sporting events are perceived as an important tool in the process of health education for the elderly.
