In an effort to help save you money and continue to increase our participation, we are again offering the “Bring a Buddy” Program. The “Bring a Buddy” Program allows current athletes to bring a "buddy" at half of the entrance fee. A “buddy” is a person who has not competed in the CT Masters’ Games in the last three years (2017-2019). We’re not only meeting our aforementioned goal, but it also made the "Games" more affordable for all athletes. The Buddy Program does not apply to Cycling, Pickleball, Softball amd Tennis due to associated costs. See below for details. 

Bring a Buddy”: Any athlete who registers for a sport will save money e.g:

Individual Sport:

  • Athlete #1 Table Tennis Fee $35.00
  • “Buddy” Table Tennis Fee $17.50 (1/2 the price)
  • Total $52.50
  • Each participant pays $26.25
  • Please Note: the Buddy Program does not apply to Cycling and Golf due to associated costs. 

In order to qualify as a “Buddy” athlete, the “Buddy” cannot have participated in the Connecticut Masters' Games in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Buddy Program Online Registration:

  • When registering online, athlete #1 needs to register for their event first and pay the full amount. 
  • Athlete #1 will give their ID number that is provided during registration to athlete #2.
  • Once athlete #2 has athlete #1's ID number, they will enter the number in registration when it asks for the Buddy ID number.
