2018 Deaf Games

The Australian Deaf Games (ADG) will be held across Albury and Wodonga from 20 to 27 January 2018.

The ADG were first held in 1964 and are considered the pinnacle of deaf sporting events in Australia and are owned and managed by Deaf Sports Australia (DSA).

Involving up to 19 sports and now held every four years, the games attract competitors from all over Australia and from a number of pacific nations (New Zealand, Fiji and Samoa). The games provides competitors an opportunity to participate to whatever level they aspire, be it for fun or selection in Australian squads as individuals or in teams.  In addition, the games provide a major social and cultural festival for the whole deaf community.

The event is supported by both Victorian and NSW State Governments with financial support from Sports and Recreation Victoria and Destination NSW.
