The Tri State Games have grown and developed over the years to become Australia’s largest ‘grass roots’ sporting event for people with a disability. Currently around 300 athletes compete each year for individual medals and awards. Each medal awarded counts for points which are allocated to their team. Teams are then able to win the coveted 'Perpetual Shield'. Athletes are well supported by around 100 coaches, carers and other assistants from across the three states.
