CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Mayor Paulette Guajardo, City Manager Peter Zanoni, and the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) will host a press conference to announce the kickoff of the Texas Summer Games of Texas 2021 in Corpus Christi. The press conference will take place on Monday, June 28, at 10:00 a.m. in the Corpus Christi Council Chambers.
The Games of Texas is the State's annual championship for sports. Athletes and teams that win the State finals are then allowed to advance to the national competition. The event was established by TAAF in 1986, making it the oldest and largest sporting event in Texas. The Games of Texas brings 10,000 athletes from 17 regions across Texas to compete in the sport of their choice.
The City was selected to initially host the Games of Texas in the summers of 2020 and 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the games were postponed in 2020, and the games were rescheduled for 2021 and 2022.
"Corpus Christi is proud to welcome amateur athletes and Olympic hopefuls from across the State to our beautiful City. I look forward to watching these athletes in action at various events and invite you to join me," said Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo
The community partners supporting the Summer Games include Visit Corpus Christi, the Downtown Management District, the Corpus Christi Independent School District, and the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority.
