Masters Games in Adelaide October 2011

The 13th Australian Masters Games will be held in Adelaide, South Australia from 7 – 16 October 2011.


The Australian Masters Games will see over 14,000 participants and supporters from all over Australia and the world compete in 59 sports in Adelaide over an event packed ten days in October.


The Masters Games are an exciting event which provides an opportunity for people over the age of 30 to participate and compete, regardless of background or ability, with the aim of encouraging lifelong participation in sport.


It really is a great opportunity for more experienced competitors to race on the track at Santos Stadium, swim in the new pool at Marion, ride on the Super-drome track or to join in on the pitch for the Rugby Union competition.


It’s not every day South Australia gets to host this prominent and extremely popular national event; and SA's Recreation, Sport and Racing Minister, Tom Kenyon said, “I would like to encourage every one to help South Australia flex its collective muscle and ensure we’re seen as a dominant force at this event here on our home soil.


“In order to ensure this is the case, I urge you all to do everything you can to encourage and motivate your clubs, their members and the general sports community to make the commitment to ‘Get In The Game’.


“This is the 13th edition of the Australian Masters Games and our State sporting pride is on the line.


“A lot of valuable work has already been completed by many of our sport industry professionals and volunteers and I thank them for their work towards hosting this great event,” Mr Kenyon said.
