WHAT'S ON IN 2022
We had some exciting changes planned over the past two years - and in 2022, we'll finally be able to bring them to life. We've also tinkered with the program ever so slightly - check out all the details below!
The entire sporting, rec & wellness, and social schedule of events takes place in our AM session (9:30am-1:00pm), PM session (2:00pm-5:30pm) and NIGHTLIFE session (7:30pm onwards)
A whole new way to plan your VTG experience!
Feedback throughout the past few years has been overwhelming, and the VTG team wanted to make sure that participants can tailor their time at VTG to suit themselves perfectly and half day events give you the ability to do so - plus, there's twice as many chances to win a VTG medal now too!
Enjoy a sleep in during the morning before heading off for an afternoon of ten pin bowling, or take an afternoon off to rest after a tough morning Netball competition - the options will be all yours at VTG in 2022.
Don't worry though, you'll still have plenty of time out on the field/court/track - with double the number of sessions, we'll be able to have less teams in each event to minimise the time you spend on the sidelines.
Check out our sample schedules to see what your VTG might look like!
*Lawn Bowls (Pennant) competitions, Golf (4BBB Stableford) & Food & Vineyard Tour are the only events that differ or take place outside these timeslots.
Help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary in style on Geelong's glistening Waterfront!
These events won't be coming back to VTG again, so make sure you include them in your VTG25 schedule because you won't want to miss them!
On Sunday night, Geelong's renowned Piano Bar will take over Cunningham Pier to put on a special 25th Anniversary entertainment show, and make sure you do not miss our 25th Birthday Ball - where your all-inclusive ticket includes hospitality, entertainment and much, much more!
Find out all the information you need about these two special events by checking out what is on offer!

WHAT'S CHANGED IN 2022
