Global Games and Tennis Queensland showcase at Big City BBQ

The INAS Glob­al Games team accept­ed Lord May­or Adri­an Schrinner’s invi­ta­tion to par­tic­i­pate in the very pop­u­lar Big City Bar­be­cue in King George Square on Fri­day 31 May.

Rais­ing funds for the Lord Mayor’s Char­i­ta­ble Trust and involv­ing lots of local clubs and organ­i­sa­tions, the event is a focal one of inclusivity.

With colour­ful give­away infor­ma­tion and wrist­bands and an ener­getic activ­i­ty with Ten­nis Queens­land the hype is build­ing for the INAS Glob­al Games being held this year in Bris­bane Octo­ber 12 – 19.

Glob­al Games Ambas­sador Jeff Horn excit­ed the large crowd say­ing Bris­bane is an incred­i­ble place for major sport­ing events, and it excels as an inclu­sive and acces­si­ble place where any­one can have access to elite sport. I can’t wait for the Games to start in Octo­ber! Bris­bane loves sport, so where bet­ter to host the Glob­al Games.”

Local ten­nis play­er, Archie Gra­ham who is cur­rent­ly ranked num­ber one in the world, chal­lenged Jeff to a ral­ly and showed the excit­ed crowd why he hopes to retain that title in Bris­bane. That is my goal and I am train­ing very hard to stay at the top. Liv­ing just out­side Bris­bane in Ipswich, it is great that the Games are in Bris­bane and I am hop­ing for lots of local support.”

Horn, who under­stands the val­ue of local sup­port, echoed those sen­ti­ments say­ing, These ath­letes are among the best in the world at what they do, and I believe we need to cel­e­brate sport­ing excel­lence at all lev­els. If you have ever wit­nessed high-lev­el sport, then you’ll know that the atmos­phere and sports­man­ship is incred­i­ble and you’ll want to be there.”
