From Small Beginnings 


A History of Veterans and Masters Athletics in Tasmania



Written and Published by Janet Upcher


“This brief history of Veterans and Masters Athletics in Tasmania has been written as tribute to all those athletes and administrators who have been committed to upholding the value of lifelong participation for older athletes.

Since its visionary inception 40 years ago as the Veterans Athletics Association of Tasmania, there have been many changes, including a change in nomenclature to the Tasmanian Masters Athletics association.

Despite a change in name, the spirit of the TMA is enduring and strong. Our members believe in perpetuating, through the decades, both friendship and fitness.

This book is a record of the contributions and achievements of Tasmanian Masters Athletes over the last four decades, which we hope will inspire Masters Athletes for decades to come.”
