general registrations have closed
New, general registrations from members of the public for the Games have now closed as Team Captains have filled all available event places. Further registrations can only be accepted with prior approval from the Team Captain.
As it’s a community event, we still never want to turn anyone away from joining in. So, you can still be involved by going down to Bob Campbell Oval, getting amongst it and cheering on the teams. There are so many opportunities to meet people and soak up the atmosphere.
about the games
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.
