About Sport Wellington

Sport Wellington is the independent body for sport and recreation and is committed to everyone in the greater Wellington region having a life-long involvement in sport and active recreation.  Sport Wellington is a Regional Sports Trust (RST) established in 1990 with charitable status under the Charities Act.

The RST operates within a wide geographical area, spanning the region between Otaki in the west across to Masterton in the east and Wellington City in the south.  The region encompasses eight territorial authority areas (matching the Wellington Regional Council area) with a population of 487,700.

Sport Wellington is governed by a Board of Trustees and managed by a CEO and General Manager, with 29 (made up of full and part-time) employees.

Sport Wellington’s main funding partners are Sport NZ, New Zealand Community Trust, Eastern and Central Community Trust, Ministry of Health, and Wellington Community Trust.  We also partner with other like-minded organisations such as territorial authorities, trusts and corporate sponsors.

2017 Wellington Hospitality Group Sportsperson of the Year Awards - presented by Sport Wellington. Wednesday 14 June - TSB Bank Arena Congratulations to all of the 2017 finalists and winners!

20 years of Green Prescription! On Monday 19 June, Dr Jonathan Coleman - Minister of Health and Minister of Sport and Recreation along with representatives from the local DHB, PHOs, Sport New Zealand, Sport Wellington and the Ministry of Health celebrated the 20th anniversary of Green Prescription. More than 400,000 Green Prescriptions (GRx) have been given out over the last 20 years to help people get active and change their diets. Sport Wellington is proud to deliver this programme across the greater Wellington region in partnership with the region’s District Health Boards. We have been involved with GRx since 1998, and during this time we have supported a significant proportion of the 500,000 New Zealanders who have benefited from the programme, increasing their levels of physical activity and improving their nutrition.

Sport Wellington would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers in our community that contribute their time, skills and passion to sport and recreation. #NVW2017
