New Zealand Masters Games - Key Notes for National Sporting Organisations
New Zealand Masters Games
The New Zealand Masters Games proudly continues to be the largest multi-sport event held in the country annually. Whanganui is preparing to host the next games from 3 to 12 February 2017.
Attended by more than 5,000 athletes, supporters, sponsors, volunteers and staff - the Masters Games is a 10 day event comprising 55 different sports. Minimum qualifying age starts from 20 years of age.
As well as the competitive events there are social twilight events. The opportunity for healthy competition is craved by Masters Games participants – and the simple joy of participation and the chance to meet old and new friends is what makes the Games a truly rewarding experience.
2017 will see some significant changes for the Games, with the relocation of the Games Village to the War Memorial Centre, and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies to be held at Cooks Gardens where Peter Snell broke the world record for the mile in 1964.
The entire city of Whanganui will be buzzing during Games week in 2017.
