With the start of the Australian Deaf Games Adelaide 2016 on Saturday, Adelaide is starting to have visible signs that one of the biggest national deaf sporting events of the year is taking place in their city. A sign was put up earlier today at Adelaide High School, the hub location for the event.
Registration pack pick up, day pass and general ticket sales open on Friday at Adelaide High School starting at 8:00 AM local time. The cost for a day pass is AU$25. With the exception of rugby 7s and beach volleyball, all venues should be wheelchair accessible.
Sport kicks off on Saturday at 12:30 PM with athletics, followed by the opening ceremony at 5:00 PM. Most sports then officially start on Sunday, including beach volleyball, cricket, eight ball, golf, lawn bowls, and touch football. Monday sees the start of ten-pin bowling, tennis, netball, and darts.
