In light of the current public health restrictions in place across Greater Sydney, the Organising Committee of the Greenwich Village Games met this week to consider the possibility of successfully staging our much loved GVG event as planned this December. Many COVID-related uncertainties considered by the Committee are unlikely to be resolved in the short term and will continue to pose a risk to the running of a safe Games. As a result, the Committee unanimously voted to defer the 2021 Games for a further 12 months to December 2022.
The entire committee is deeply disappointed to have to make this difficult call but it was the strong view of the Organising Committee that the unifying community spirit of the Games will be best preserved by waiting until the Games can be held safely and with maximum community participation.
For the many hundreds of community members who have already signed up for their teams arrangements are being made for refunds to be processed back to the account from which registration fees were paid. These refunds will be processed as quickly as practicable over the coming weeks.
The new date for the Games has been set for December 2-4, 2022 and we will all be striving to keep the spirit of the Games alive until then. Circumstances permitting the Organising Committee will look at sponsoring some form of community event in early December.
Until then, the Organising Committee would like to thank every member of our community who has worked to try and make the Games a reality this year and looks forward to seeing everyone at the Games in 2022.
Stay safe and well with your families and friends and stay #Greenwichstrong !
