Thursday, 11 May 2017

Are you a former sportsperson or sports lover on the wrong side of 30? Then now is the time to join the 10th Lismore Workers Masters Games with registrations open for the event this September.

The Lismore Masters Games is known nation-wide as a great social event, with competitors having as much fun off the field as they do on it. 2017 promises to be no different with a high-quality social program to entertain all competitors.

Lismore Masters Games Chairperson Matt Barlow said the Games offered up three days of action-packed competition with more than 1500 competitors expected to descend on Lismore.

“That’s a massive boost of more than $1 million for the Lismore economy in just one weekend. It couldn’t come at a better time following the flood earlier this year,” Matt said.

“In the last 20 years the Lismore Masters Games has gone from strength to strength and we have competitors flying-in from right across Australia. The social aspects of the competition are a big drawcard and people have made lifelong friendships over the years. The competitors show great sportsmanship throughout the weekend – the spirit of the Games is very much alive and it's all about enjoying great Australian sports with your mates.”

The Lismore Masters Games will be held from the 22-24 September across Lismore’s various sporting venues.

There are 14 sports people can choose to register for: baseball, cricket, dressage, golf, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, Oztag, fitness challenge, football, five-side football, softball, swimming and mini-lympics.
