19th annual Australian Master’s Games to be held in Adelaide in 2023

Visiting Adelaide for its eighth year in 2023, the Australian Masters Games will be hosting more than 50 sporting competitions from 7-14 October.

Athletes and sporting spectators will be flocking to Adelaide next year for the 19th edition of the Australian Masters Games, taking place from 7-14 October 2023.

Created by the Confederation of Australian Sport in 1987, the week-long festival of sport brings together competitors from all over the country to enjoy an extensive sport and social program.

Australians will be able to witness or participate in more than 50 different sports – and colourful ones at that. Not only will you be able to see some traditional events, such as athletics, basketball, and netball, but you’ll also be able to enjoy sports like archery, darts, and dragon boat. Yes, dragon boat (that’s certainly something you don’t see every day).

The Australian Master Games is a mass participation event, so anyone who meets the age requirements of their sport of choice is welcome to join. Minimum age requirements vary, but most require you to be 30 years or over. For some sports (e.g., swimming and figure skating) the minimum age will be lower.

You also don’t need to be a member of a club or a superstar of the sport to participate. The point of the festival is to enable lovers of sport to get involved and have a bit of fun.

In addition to sport, the Games is also renowned for its social program, giving athletes and spectators the opportunity to enjoy an epic entertainment program and explore Adelaide’s hidden gems.

Registrations for 24 sports are now open, with another 24 sports to open soon. The online list, however, is not all inclusive, and will continue to be updated as further sports are locked in.

Sports registrations due to open soon include badminton, canoeing, cue sports (billiards and snooker), fencing, powerlifting, pickleball, squash, taekwondo, figure skating, and more.

For all the latest updates, check out the Australian Masters Games website, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
