We are excited to be bringing the Turf Games back to LA, in partnership with HSBC SVNS.   LA has been on our return wish list for some time, having first done a Turf in LA in 2019, and we can't wait to finally bring TURF back to California and put on an amazing weekend for the fitness community.


The 2024 LA event will be held on the 2nd March and will form part of the HSBC SVNS LAX Tournament weekend.


All athletes who sign up to take part in the Turf Games will also get guaranteed seats in the main stadium included in your entry price on your competing day to watch all the HSBC SVNS rugby action - in between your workouts and then into the early evening - TURF + SVNS - doesn't get much better!

Please find all the relevant information below.

Turf Games is a team based functional fitness competition. Having started in London in 2018, we now host competitions all over the world including Dubai, Sydney, Gold Coast, London, Dublin, Cape Town and more. With more than 10,000 athletes having taken part in a Turf Games comp in 2023, we are excited to get to LA for a big 2024 event!  

How is it different to a CF comp? The workout tests that we programme are all built around teamwork - how to use your team's strengths and weaknesses - to maximise your score - all whilst having fun! The core of the workouts are based around - strength, conditioning and power. We don't programme any high skilled gymnastics or complex olympic lifting movements. You won't be seeing any hand stands, muscle ups, overhead squats, max barbell 1RM snatches - just good old fashioned hard work and determination. The workouts will be fun, challenging and rewarding all at the same time. You've been training at the gym, now it's time to put all that into practice on the Turf surrounded by the fitness community.

Who enters a Turf Games? We have 3 divisions to choose from, based on your level and why you want to take part. All over the world we get people entering from their local hiit studios, F45's, functional fitness gyms, 'globo' gyms, all the way to CF Boxes and 'Elite Athletes'.

Below is a guide on movement standards and also what division you should enter. Any questions please drop caroline@turfgames.com an email.
