The countdown has begun to the 17th Australasian Police and Emergency Services (APES) Games to be held in Mandurah, Western Australia in 2018.

The Games’ torch was lit at a special launch event on the night of Saturday 28 October 2017 to mark exactly one year from the start of the Games, which will run from 28 October to 3 November 2018.

Held every two years, the APES Games is a multi-sport event open to all serving, retired and volunteer personnel from Police and Emergency Service agencies throughout Australasia.

Chair of the WA Police Sports Federation, WA Police Force Deputy Commissioner Stephen Brown said more than 3000 competitors from 115 eligible agencies across ten countries will take part. “The message for our people is simple: Get fit, get excited and get to Mandurah in 2018,” he said.

Early-bird registration is now open for all eligible competitors across more than 50 sports on the Games’ website http://www.apandesgames.com.au/
