Event Description

Pan Pacific Masters Games, Gold Coast, 3 – 11 November 2012

The 8th Pan Pacific Masters Games will be held from 3 to 11 November 2012 on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

An anticipated 11,000 participants from Queensland, interstate and overseas will converge on the Gold Coast to compete in this major multi-sport event which has stamped itself on the calendar at the beginning of November every two years.

Participants at the Pan Pacs, as the Games are affectionately known, compete in their age group with no qualifying standards to enter. The only criteria for entry is a minimum age for each sport, which for the majority is 30 years of age.

The biennial event is a celebration of master’s sport with both fierce and friendly competition including a jam-packed entertainment program at the official Games Village.

The 2012 program includes more than 30 sports including a vast array of team sports such as softball, touch football, soccer, basketball and baseball, as well as individual sports ranging from swimming, athletics, tennis to archery.

All sports are located in close proximity to the Games Village at the Gold Coast & Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach which becomes an exclusive hub for competitors to meet up, socialise and enjoy the camaraderie the event is renowned for.

The slogan of the Pan Pacific Masters Games is ‘Play it, Live it, Love it!’ which encapsulates its competitive, participatory and social environment.

Entries open Thursday 3 May 2012.
