Sport Wellington Events & Awards

Sport Wellington is committed to providing events and awards which encourage and support participation and inclusivity, and which celebrate success.  We believe in supporting the playground to the podium concept; everyone has the opportunity to reach their personal goals within the sport and recreation environment.

Our major events are Cigna Round the Bays, The Dominion Post Wellington Sportsperson of the Year Awards and the Big Annual Buggy Walk.  As well as these we also produce a number of smaller, programme events including monthly Buggy Walks, the Pelorus Trust Stadium Sports Festival for school children, and the Sport New Zealand Volunteer of the Year Breakfast.

Happy #HungryHumpDay Food and exercise go hand in hand. Over winter, getting motivated to go outside can be hard! Why not try find ways to do indoor exercises- dancing to music is a perfect way to get huffing and puffing all in the comfort of your own home! Get the kids to join too. They might end up on TV and get to hang with the Hurricanes like Princeton - son of our very own Tom Pere! #dancingcaneskid Hurricanes Sport Wellington
