Any locally based Tasmanian who is yet to sign up for the 2017 Australian Masters Games in the state’s North West can do so for another month for a discounted entry fee of $99.

The Australian Masters Games is opening this special $99 entry fee offer for those with a registered address within Tasmania in partnership with the Cradle Coast Authority as a thank you for hosting the Games. This fee covers entry for all the sports, so why not try something new this October.

The 16th edition of the Games will be hosted in Tasmania from Saturday 21st to Saturday 28th October. It is expected over 6,000 participants will compete across over 40 different sports.

“Having the Games here is a big deal not only for the region, but the entire state and it has been great to see everyone getting involved,” General Manager of the Australian Masters Games, Scott Wade said.

“Our goal is to get at least 2,000 Tasmanian participants and we are well on our way to hitting that target.  Hopefully this will be an incentive for more locals to be a part of the action this October.”

The Cradle Coast Authority secured the Games with the aim to not only to bring more tourism to the Cradle Coast, but also as something special for the local community.

“This is a fantastic excuse to get an old sports team together to replay the ‘79 final or start that goal of exercising more,” Cradle Coast Authority CEO, Brett Smith said.

“The Masters Games is about participation, everyone is a winner when it comes to playing more.”

The Games will feature a number of quality sports venues and social offerings across the region, which will begin in Devonport with the Games opening and local food and wine festival and conclude in Burnie with a closing and community after party headlined by the Hoodoo Gurus.
