Pan Pacific Masters Games is the Gold Coast’s famous celebration of masters sport and will showcase competition in more than 40 sports at some of the best sporting facilities on the planet and feature an amazing entertainment program at the Games Village.
Participants compete in their age group with no qualifying standards or times to enter. The only criterion for entry is a minimum age for each sport, which for the majority is 30 years of age.
The Pan Pacific Masters Games, first staged in 1998, has grown to become the biggest biennial masters games in the world and is acclaimed as one of the best organised multi-sport events in Australia. The previous edition attracted 16,000 athletes and their supporters with more than half coming from interstate and overseas resulting in a massive boost for Queensland in both the tourism and sport industries. It has cemented its position as Australia’s premier multi-sport event and is currently on par in terms of participation levels with some of the biggest sporting occasions in the world such as the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what sport/s you will enter at the 2021 Pan Pacific Masters Games. There are more than 40 individual and team sports on the program including old favourites and a bunch of new exciting additions.
