21 April 2012 / Elaios holds 7th Juegos del Cierzo

A message from FGG member organization Elaios:

From LGTB sports club Elaios we invite you to take part in the new edition of Cierzo Games that will take place from 21 to 23 of April 2012 in Zaragoza, Spain.

The 7th Cierzo Games intend to reach a record participation, at both national and international levels, although we can assure the even will not lose its familiar character and its personal treatment that have become its pattern. It wants to become a more even event, with an increase of female athletes and a wider sports offer.

This year we will continue trying harder to make it an attractive event for everyone, with the ability to surprise and attract. As biggest innovations this year we will have:

- New GLTA tennis tournaments for doubles. After the success of its first edition last year, and overseen by the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance, in 2012 Zaragoza will become Spain’s third city along with Madrid and Barcelona to host such an event and the only one exclusively for doubles.

- Return of swimming to Cierzo Games. It was first included in 2010 with 70 swimmers. This time the swimming competition is restored, it will be authorized by Federacion Aragonesa de Natacion (Aragonese swimming federation) and there will be new categories of competitions (up to 400 mts.)

- Heavy bet for women’s sports. Elaios, as a club that is engaged to women’s visibility in sports, wants to continue promoting equal Cierzo Games. That is why this year there will be an exclusively sport for women (basket), female competition in volley and the possibility to take part in the rest of the competitions.

- More shared activities. We make a big bet for recreational and social activities where sportsmen and sportswomen from different disciplines can interact between each other. For this purpose a whole welcome program, parties, brunch and dinner in wide spaces have been scheduled so they can simultaneously accept participants from all sports (volley, basket, tennis and swimming).

Inscription time is open and will close the 5 of April 2012, being that date the last one to pay the fees.

As hosting club we are full of hope and mood and we will work hard to get the best results. We expect to count on your presence and see you coming to live the best edition of Cierzo games along with all the other competitors and Elaios!
