Australian Masters Games 2021

The Australian Masters Games is a biennial sporting event that is regarded as one of the premier and largest participation sporting events on the Australian sporting landscape. In 2021 the 18th edition of the Games will be hosted in Perth from Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th October.

The Heart Foundation is proud to be the charity partner of the 18th Australian Masters Games. The Games encourages friendly sporting competition while promoting our mutual goal for physical activity for all levels of fitness.

The Games participants will not only be running, jumping and throwing their way to good health next October, they will also be supporting the Heart Foundation as the Official Charity Partner of the 2021 Australian Masters Games inspiring others to get active.

“One of the primary aims of the Australian Masters Games is to encourage healthy active lifestyles for people who are over the age of 30, which aligns perfectly with our commitment to heart health via healthy eating and active living,” Heart Foundation CEO, Adjunct Professor John Kelly, said.

“Physical inactivity is a key risk factor for heart disease, which continues to be the single leading cause of death in Australia. Currently, more than half of Australian adults are not active enough for good health.

“But the good news is that heart disease is largely preventable and being active and healthy eating can help control risk factors such as high blood pressure and being overweight.

“We are delighted to partner with the Australian Masters Games and look forward to seeing participants take care of their hearts by making longer-term changes to their lifestyles,” Professor Kelly said.
