CDCR dos CTT Portugal has the pleasure to invite Eurojumelages members to participate in the XXXII edition of the National Games of CTT (Portugal Posts). The Games will be held in Castelo Branco, Portugal between 8th and 11th June 2023.
The National Games are organised by our club, CDCR dos CTT, every two years since 1965, in a different city. The National Games consist of sporting and cultural events where Postal employees are the main protagonists. The participation rate is quite high and averages about 700 persons. The highest officials of the Portuguese Posts (CTT), the members of the National Assembly of CDCR dos CTT and the President of Eurojumelages, Mr. Peter Backes, will be present in Castelo Branco.
For the first time, we have the honour and the pleasure to give these games an international flavour, and we would like to issue an invitation for 30 persons from the Eurojumelages family to take part in the games together with the Portuguese participants. For practical reasons, the invitation is being limited to disciplines where competition is for individuals. Participants are to indicate CLEARLY which activity they intend to participate in.
Since the National Games are primarily intended for entrants from CTT- Portugal Posts, the results of external participants (from EJ members outside Portugal) will be unofficial. Nevertheless, the external participants will also be classified according to their results and will be awarded prizes. Everyone is assured of a great time playing the sport, discipline or game that is dear to their heart!
