First Ever Tournament Capital Games Coming to Kamloops
KAMLOOPS - The City of Kamloops is pleased to announce a new sporting event coming this fall - the first annual Tournament Capital Games (TC Games).
This home-grown, multi-sport event is designed for the adult athlete and includes track and field, women’s mountain biking, women's hockey, pickleball, slo-pitch, soccer, squash, swimming, volleyball, and tennis.
The TC Games will take place at local venues, September 8-10, 2017. The brand new website is live, and registration is open! The TC Games are receiving a terrific response. The event is supported by Tourism Kamloops, the Kamloops Sports Council, and local sport organizations (LSOs).
The concept was inspired by the incredibly successful Huntsman Games, which take place every year in St. George, Utah. The Huntsman Games, which run annually for two weeks, started out small in the late 1980s, and it has grown to attract over 10,000 participants from all over the world.
A “Saturday Night Social” – included in registration but also open to the public – will be held in Riverside Park on September 9. Celebrate with friends new and old while enjoying one of Kamloops’ most iconic outdoor venues.
The city will provide a warm welcome to newcomers and long-time residents with live music in the bandshell, an indulgent selection of food trucks, and a beverage garden (located at 100 Lorne Street). The gates will open early in the afternoon, and the evening’s festivities will kick off at 6:00 pm.
