Active older people

The Sport New Zealand Active Older People Discussion Document has been developed to support those who want to encourage or provide quality community sport and active recreation opportunities for older people.

Sport NZ, in conjunction with Sport Bay of Plenty, has developed the document to start a conversation on the needs, wants and aspirations of older people in relation to participation in community sport and active recreation.
