There are 100 days to go until the 2021 Australian Masters Games land in Perth and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
In October up to 8,000 participants and 2,000 accompanying persons are expected to attend the week-long festival of sport.
General Manager of the Australian Masters Games (AMG), Kirsten Drower is excited to be bringing the AMG to Perth and honouring the scope of Masters sport in Australia.
“The AMG is a celebration of life long participation in sport, it’s about sport for all and celebrating participation as well as the sporting achievements of older Australians who are busting stereotypes,” she said.
The AMG is renowned for its social program almost as much as the sports. In 2021 the social program will bring together participants from all sports to experience the best Perth has to offer.
“We’ll be inviting participants to walk on the hallowed turf of Optus Stadium, take in an unforgettable Indian Ocean sunset and explore West Australia’s (WA) rich cultural and natural heritage,” Drower said.
The AMG is a great opportunity for people to get active, be social and explore more of their Aussie backyard. You don’t need to qualify and there is something for everyone across the week-long event.
CAS CEO Rob Bradley is pleased to see the evolution and growth of the AMG continue into it’s eighteenth edition and said that the games play an important role in encouraging people to continue being active throughout their lives.
“A primary aim of the AMG is to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for people who are over the age of 30.
“The Games are a time for weekend warriors to gather and immerse themselves in the sport they love and connect with participants from all over the country.” Bradley said.
