We like to do events for Western Australians.

The Great Southern Invitational is our new event – in Albany, for young Western Australians.

RV Sport was established in 2008, under the guidance of Andrew Vlahov. Since its inception the company has created and managed some iconic sporting events, particularly basketball. These events have taken us across the globe into China, Singapore and Indonesia.

Our Friendship Games event is focussed on youth sporting and cultural exchanges between students of Australia and other countries.

We are aspiring to evolve this concept regionally with The Great Southern Invitational (GSI).

We are motivated and passionate about bringing new opportunities to Western Australian youth and strive to provide well executed and memorable experiences.
