Registrations are now open for the 11th Lismore Workers Masters Games with the biennial competition set for September 27–29, 2019.
More than 1,500 competitors are expected for the games and to socialise, renew lifelong friendships, and enjoy good-natured fun.
‘All our competitors love playing sport but the Masters Games is not all about winning. It’s about taking part, hanging with your mates, and enjoying the camaraderie that sport offers,’ Lismore City Council’s events officer Leanne Clark said.
‘We cannot believe this event has been going for two decades. Some of our youngest players when we started are now our senior masters. But that’s how much people love the event – many have been coming since it started back in 1999,’ she said.
The games are open to competitors over 30 and regularly attract players from all over Australia.
Registrations are now open for the following 20 sports: baseball, basketball, cricket, equestrian, golf, hockey, lawn bowls, mountain biking, netball, oztag, fitness challenge, football, five-side football, rugby union, softball, swimming, and masters mini games (euchre, darts, pool and indoor bowls).
There is also a social program to entertain all.
