Welcome to Sport NZ’s website

Thanks for coming to our newly designed website.

We’ve updated our site to make it more accessible, inclusive, relevant and user centric.

Most of the play, active recreation and sport resources and information you’re used to finding are still here. And they will be a lot easier to access. 

We asked users across the sector about what they wanted from our website (thank you for all your input) and we have responded with new user-centric navigation and accessible features. You’ve now got great options to get to information fast. From the home page, you can browse by role or topic, use the ‘how we can help’ menu, use the search function, or go direct to the top-level navigation and click through the tabs.
