Gold Coast Games       4-15 April 2018

The next "Friendly Games" is on Australia’s Gold Coast which is sure to be an attractive destination as it provides the ideal opportunity to combine a great holiday with watching sport - already 225+ fans have registered to attend the Gold Coast Games as part of the T&FT group.

Track & Field Tours Experience at the “Friendly Games” – 30+ years and counting….

Our staff and company have arranged tours to every Games since 1986 – no other sports tour operator can match this experience with the Gold Coast event being the 9th edition we have organised groups to.

To date this has seen us operating on 4 continents in city locations as diverse as Auckland, Delhi, Kuala Lumpur and Victoria in addition to the UK and previous events in Australia.  In this time the Games has grown from being akin to a jolly village fete to the spectacular professional sports festival it is today and we, of course, have grown and adapted too.

During this period Track & Field Tours was recognised as an official agent for both the 2002 Manchester Games and the 2014 Glasgow Games where arrangements were made for 600+ clients on both occasions. And for the most recent Games in Australia at Melbourne in 2006 we made arrangements for 200+ fans at what was a fabulous event organised with great style by our Australian hosts and which is sure to be the same for the 2018 edition.

We have shared this journey along with the many thousands of clients over the past 30+ years that have enjoyed our wide range of Athletes Family, Friends and Fans programmes that are designed to provide both access to event services and the flexibility that we know our many regular and new clients always appreciate… and always along with fun social events! At the Glasgow Commonwealth Games our exclusive T&FT Games Party in the spectacular Corinthian Club saw 20+ athletes and Games medalists join our hundreds of clients for a wonderful event celebration. In Delhi in 2010 who can forget Will Sharman’s unique take on Indian dancing and in Melbourne in 2006 the T&FT Welcome Party performance of the Aboriginal group that provided a unique start for group members to the last Games in Australia - imagination backed with experience are the ingredients to the art of Being There!
