Whether you’re competing, supporting, officiating, volunteering or just keen to get involved as spectator, there are plenty of ways to be part of World Masters Games 2017.
Catch some sport
Sports will take places at 48 competition venues from North Auckland to the Waikato and spectating from the sidelines is free, though capacity is limited at some venues. Take a look at the sports taking place, and you could find there are venues near you. Perhaps you have a friend or family member competing, in which case you’re bound to be on the sidelines cheering them on. Note that you must be a registered athlete or supporter to attend some events such as the Opening and Closing ceremonies and participant parties.
