WHAT IS THE TURF GAMES SUMMER FITNESS FESTIVAL

We are bringing the Summer Festival experience to Sydney.  The Turf Games is the ultimate team based fitness competition.  While fitness and competition is at the heart of what we are about, our festivals are a celebration of the community and fun that we love about fitness.  The competition is built for the athletes, while the festival atmosphere is all centered around the spectators and making it a great experience.   There will be amazing music, food brands, drinks brands, tech brands and some great activation's around the venue.
