take our Games survey
The Greenwich Village Games Organising Committee welcomes your feedback about your experience of the 2016 Games. We would love to know what you thought about this year’s Games and what you would like to see in future. You can either reply to just a few questions – or take a little more time to give us additional feedback. Up to you.
The survey is anonymous. We want you to be completely honest, as it will help us make the best decisions in planning the 2020 Games. It should take about 3 minutes for the quick option or 10 minutes for the longer version. Thank you in advance.
about the games
The Greenwich Village Games commenced with golf on Friday night 2nd December 2016, then continued through Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th, including the famous Revue Performances on the Saturday night. Check out our events calendar to see when your favourite events were on. Food stalls and delicious treats were also available on-site throughout the weekend.
Every 4 years, the Greenwich community in Sydney get together for their own version of the Olympic Games, involving a series of sporting, skill and theatrical contests with 8 competing teams aged from 2 to 100.
The Greenwich Village Games was conceived through the vision of one man, a local resident, Tom Lawson. It was Australia’s bicentennial year and the community were searching to do something to commemorate and celebrate this milestone. Tom, originally from Scotland, was inspired by the Pentathlon in the Scottish Highlands. Eight teams were formed and named, loosely around resident’s professions; ages and genders were mixed; and a variety of sporting disciplines endorsed.
