Central Coast Council is inviting young gamers to take part in the Ultimate Gamer Tournament.

Open to local gamers aged 12-24, the six-round tournament held across the coast commences on Thursday 27 February at Erina Fair.

Council's Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said the tournament is returning following last year's popular inaugural event.

"We are excited to bring the tournament back in 2020 following the success of our pilot program event last year," Ms Vaughan said.

"Last year over 200 people competed, with first, second and third place winners awarded.

"This year we have new games for players to compete for a chance to win prizes from a total prize pool of $2,000."

Central Coast Mayor Lisa Matthews said the event connects young people on the coast.

"Our youth are an important part of our community and Council is committed to creating opportunities to celebrate their achievements and abilities," Mayor Matthews said.

"The Ultimate Gamer Tournament is an opportunity for young people to showcase their gaming skills, compete, learn new skills, and meet new people in a fun environment."

The tournament is open to all levels of ability and gaming experience and may appeal to people who are on the autism spectrum.

A chill out tent space will be available for young people to relax or who may need a space to retreat.

Each heat will be held in mobile gaming vans, with the capacity of up to 100 gamers per session, located at major shopping centres.

Entry is free, with winners of each heat advancing to compete in the semi-finals and grand final in May.

All heats will be held on Thursday nights 4.30pm - 7.30 pm at:

  • 27 February - Erina Fair
  • 12 March - Westfield Tuggerah
  • 26 March - Umina SLSC
  • 2 April - Lake Munmorah Shopping Centre
  • 16 April - Kibble Park, Gosford
  • 30 April - Lake Haven Shopping Centre

The semi-finals will be held at Erina Fair on Thursday 7 May, with the grand final at Westfield Tuggerah on Thursday 21 May, both from 4.30pm to 8.30pm.
