Team Sydney has declared the 2010 Mardi Gras Sports Festival and Fair Day Sports Village a success.
The Sports Festival featured 18 events highlighting the skills, diversity and team spirit of Sydney’s popular GLBT sporting groups. This year saw the return of the Tennis Sydney Mardi Gras Championships and the Little Black Dress Run, as well the debut of Women’s Amazon Tennis social day.
“This was bigger than before and from all reports each event was successful in their own way,” Team Sydney president Geoffrey Radford told Sydney Star Observer.
The Sports Village showcased 25 Team Sydney sporting groups with hundreds of keen GLBT sporting types signing up to the various groups.
“It was good to see so many new clubs participating this year. Clubs got to mix with each other and share ideas. Many of the clubs mentioned this to us and they thought this was one of the main highlights for them,” Radford said.
Team Sydney is already planning the 2011 Sports Village as they’re currently searching for sponsorship to bring a stage to their area.
In the meantime, the annual Sports Day Out is also being organised and will be held later in the year with the possibility of extending the event over two days.
