ORGANISERS of the Barellan Masters Games believe "it's never too late to participate" and are inviting seniors to sign up for this year's event.

The games, which are hosted by Barellan Masters Games committee will take place from February 27 to 28.

The annual event attracts hundreds of people from the region and beyond each year and organisers are hoping to see some new faces.

This year's Games will feature nine different sports including golf, tennis, walking, basketball, lawn bowls, softball, triathlon, netball and six-a-side cricket.

Funds raised through the event are donated to various community projects and the event's committee has pledged approximately $95,000 to date.

Projects that have been supported in the past include solar heating at the local pool, new netball courts at the sports ground and assistance with the refurbishment of the Barellan Tennis Courts.

Branded merchandise including stubby holders, neck ties, unisex singlets and shirts will be available for purchase this year.

Evonne Goolagong-Cawley will be opening the Barellan Tennis Courts on February 27 at 10am as part of the 2021 Covid-safe Barellan Masters Games.
