Great Barrier Reef Masters Games

Softball will be one of the sports at the inaugural Great Barrier Reef Masters Games to be held from 8 – 11 August 2013 at one of Australia’s most popular holiday and vacation destinations in Cairns, North Queensland.


More than 2,000 masters-aged men and women from Australia, Oceania and South East Asia are expected to converge on stunning Tropical North Queensland to take part in this history-making event.


Presented by the team behind the Gold Coast’s biennial Pan Pacific Masters Games using the same blend of sports and entertainment programs, this exciting new event will see participants compete in 20 individual and team sports across four massive days of masters competition.


The biennial event will be a celebration of master’s sport with both fierce and friendly competition as participants compete in their own age group with no qualifying standards to enter. The only criterion for entry is a minimum age for each sport, which for the majority is 30 years of age.


Cairns offers competitors the perfect combination of stunning diverse natural beauty and extensive sporting infrastructure such as award-winning venues, comprehensive facilities and professional support services.


Cairns is located near two World Heritage areas, the iconic Great Barrier Reef and Australia’s Wet Tropics Rainforests, providing participants the unique opportunity to incorporate adventure and discovery during their sporting holiday.


Entries open Friday 15 February, 2013.
