Mandurah will host a major surfing competition later this year, one of two sporting events coming to the Peel region following funding from the WA Government’s regional events scheme.
The Peel region will receive between $5000 and $40,000 to host the West Australian Pro Surf Series in October and the Mandurah Action Sports Games in March 2024.
The WA Pro series was established for local, national and international surfers to gain ranking points in the World Surfing League Junior Tour and Qualifying Series.
The Action Sports Games has been a key calendar event in Mandurah for several years.
“Thanks to this round of the regional events scheme, 65 events across WA will receive funding, including two fantastic events right here in Mandurah,” said Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman
“The scheme supports a range of smaller or developing sporting, arts, cultural and culinary events that encourage visitation and provide valuable media exposure for Mandurah.”
