12th Lismore Workers Masters Games
September 23 @ 8:00 am - September 25 @ 5:00 pm AEST
Lismore Workers Masters Games – Postponed
Note from the organisers:
Regrettably and with a heavy heart we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 12th Lismore Workers Masters Games which was scheduled to run from Friday 24 September to Sunday 26 September 2021 until Friday 23 September to Sunday 25 September 2022.
We have been following COVID developments in Greater Sydney and nationally very closely over the recent days. As positive cases continue to emerge and borders are closed, it has become clear that the current restrictions will push too close to the Event to make it feasible to proceed in September 2021. Especially given a large portion of participating competitors and stakeholders are located in either Greater Sydney, Queensland or interstate and are subject to travel restrictions. In addition is the growing community hesitancy to travel in such uncertain times.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of everyone involved in the Masters Games – competitors, umpires, artists, volunteers, local businesses, staff and the ongoing safety of the wider Lismore and Northern Rivers community.
We are devastated and know everyone associated with the Event will also feel the disappointment that comes with the decision to postpone the Games. This decision has not been made lightly, however all sports and stakeholders have been consulted and it has been agreed that the safety of all participants and the wider community is of the utmost importance.
We are working to provide refunds in due course. There is nothing you need to do at this stage – all registered participants will receive an email with next steps by Wednesday 11 August, 2021.
We offer our sincere thanks for your continued support and understanding at this time.
