The New Zealand Masters Games is the largest multi-sport event in New Zealand. Held yearly, the event alternates between Wanganui and Dunedin.  The 29th Masters Games will be held in Dunedin from the 3rd to the 11th of February 2018.
The Masters Games offer a full range of sports to participate in for both summer and winter codes. There are opening and closing ceremonies, medals are awarded and we have a games village. You do not need to be an elite athlete to compete and you don’t need to qualify. Anyone can register for the Games – whether to win, to beat your personal best or to just have fun.
The Masters Games is for athletes of masters age.  Every sport is different with respect to the age at which athletes becomes masters. However you’re a master at age 20 in swimming and generally a master in most sports by the age of 30.  With participants ranging from 18 to 95 and beyond there are opportunities to participate for everyone.
