The 2016 Australian Deaf Games, being held in Adelaide from 9 January to 16 January 2016, has major event status in South Australia and strong support from the South Australian Government. It promises to be “the best Games ever”!
The Games will be the “must be at” event for Australia’s Deaf and hard of hearing community in 2016, providing a unique opportunity for everyone within and connected with the community to network, meet new people, celebrate with friends and colleagues, compete…….and be inspired.
The event is being centred in the vibrant City of Adelaide, utilizing the many world-class sporting venues situated within the surrounding Parklands and the city fringe. Most interstate and international visitors are likely to be accommodated within the Adelaide central business district and fringe areas.
Deaf Sports Australia and the Games Organising Committee are delighted that Adelaide High School on the Western Parklands has agreed to host the Games Hub, including a comprehensive Cultural/Social Program, a Deaf Community Expo and the usual Games Hub administrative facilities and services.
The Adelaide High School Hub will also be the central meeting place for all competitors and participants, within walking distance of most accommodation and many sporting venues.
