South West Sport is excited to announce the return of the South West Games. The 2021 edition of the South West Games will take place with the theme of ‘Sports and Physical Activation’ in a COVID Safe environment from the 20th to 28th November. 

The 2021 South West Games aims to re-activate sport and active recreational opportunities for the communities in South West Victoria. Additionally, local clubs can use the Games to welcome new members, displaying the essence of the sport through social modified style activities or come and try sessions. 

We don’t need to tell you that the past 18 months have been challenging. Sport has been heavily disrupted and we want to give everyone a reason to get moving again! Working towards the guidelines set out in the Victorian Government Roadmap, we believe the 2021 South West Games will enable local sporting clubs and businesses to re-activate sport and recreation activities for community members in a diverse, inclusive and safe environment. 

Please note, whilst we encourage sporting codes to look at social modified or come and try style activities, a traditional competitive match or game can still be organised, as long as the activity can take place within Victorian Government guidelines in November.

We encourage clubs to use booking systems where possible to adhere to capacity limits and consider running multiple sessions for smaller groups to increase participation opportunities.  
We hope that you will be part of the South West Games in 2021.
