Registrations open for Masters games 2023
THOUSANDS of athletes across a selection of different sports are expected to compete in next year’s sixth annual Great Barrier Reef Masters games in Cairns with registrations now open.
Currently 21 sports have been registered to be a part of next year’s games including new additions like Aussie Rules, lawn bowls, darts and soccer.
Former Olympic gold medallist Liesel Jones OAM has been announced as the event’s ambassador along with former North Queensland Cowboys star Matt Bowen who has come on board as the Far North Queensland ambassador.
Organisers of the event are hoping to attract thousands of participants aged 35 years and over to next year’s event in May.
“The 2021 Games were a resounding success with 2500 participants taking part in four days of fitness, fun and friendship,” Cairns Regional Council Deputy Mayor Terry James said.
“The games generated more than $3.5 million in an economic boost for the local Cairns economy and more than ever we are ready to welcome people back to our region.
“Cairns offers an amazing backdrop for this type of event, competitors can put themselves to the test on the field during the competition, relax and enjoy the games hospitality during the night, and explore our spectacular natural attractions in their spare time.”
Early bird registrations are open until 31 August 2022, which includes the chance to win a full accommodation package prize staying at the Pullman Cairns International Hotel valued at $1,000.
The Great Barrier Reef Masters Games will be held on 25-28 May 2023.
