SAN Remo couple Georgina and Warwick Webb are two locals looking forward to the Australasian Police and Emergency Service Games in Mandurah from October 28.

Both are life members of Mandurah Surf Life Saving Club and are competing in a number of events.

Participants can choose between 50 different sports.

The Webbs will both be busy during the week.

Georgina Webb is playing hockey, mountain biking and may be giving the triathlon a go.

Warwick Webb will be focusing on water sports, competing in the swimming, surfing, the ocean surf ski race as well as the triathlon.

The event focuses on participation.

“It’s about meeting new people, it’s about community, it’s about fun,’’ Mrs Webb said.

“Both Warwick and I love to get outside into nature and we both love the idea of keeping healthy and giving back to the community at the same time through surf lifesaving.”

The AP&ES Games are held every two years in a different city in Australia or New Zealand.

Mandurah will host the 17th games with 3000 people expected to compete.

The Games are expected to pump more than $2.5 million into the WA economy with most of the cash going to Mandurah businesses.

Many local hotels and motels are already seeing strong accommodation sales for the week of the Games.
