The South Australian Sports Museum will be the state’s most comprehensive sports cultural institution, housing significant sports collections from a diverse range of sports. We will make the State’s historical sports heritage accessible to all through exhibitions and public programs. The creation of the South Australian Sports Museum will acknowledge the achievements of our sporting greats and bring their feats to life and inspire all South Australians.

There will also be a wide variety of activities both sporting and social. The new and improved sporting facilities which have been developed and planned will be ready for 2018.
I encourage our sporting masters to joining us once again at the Masters Games in Murray Bridge. Masters Sport is a great way to enjoy lifelong involvement in sport as part of an active, balanced and healthy lifestyle for all South Australians.

A sustainable lifestyle post sporting career is a key objective for any athlete.
