Mandurah Action Sports Games spread over two weekends | Mandurah Courier
The Mandurah Action Sports Games will now take place over two weekends.
Due to heavy rain forecast for this weekend, the organizer has taken the decision to postpone the skate, BMX, scooter and freestyle motocross competition to May 14 and 15.
This Sunday, March 27, some of WA’s top male and female wakeboarders will head to Mandjar Bay for the Wakeboard Tournament.
Defending wakeboard champion and local hero Riley Middleton (Secret Harbour, WA) will face champions like Callan Starr and Ben Heatly.
Pro wakeboarder Charlie Shore (Qld) and Mackenzie McCarthy (Qld) will travel west to compete in the women’s open wakeboard event.
Action Sports events manager Tim Thirsk said he was delighted to host the event in Mandurah.
“Mandurah Town is blessed with amazing waterways, beaches and a world class skate park right in the heart of downtown Mandurah and it is without a doubt one of the best places in Australia to hold this style competitive,” he said.
“It’s a shame the forecast is not in our favour, however, the weather is perfect for the wakeboard tournament.
“Mandurah will have a double with skate, BMX, scooter and freestyle motocross returning in May.”
There will be a capacity of 500 people in each event space and measures will be put in place for the event:
- Face masks will be required at the event
- Capacity will be managed via entry and exit points throughout the day
- There will be reminders for competitors and spectators to practice social distancing, good hygiene, hand sanitization and to check in with the event QR code
