About Sport Wellington

SportPerson 24 v2
Sport Wellington is the independent body for physical activity in the greater Wellington region and is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve. 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 Ekatahuna in the east and Wellington City in the south. The region encompasses eight territorial authority areas (matching the Greater Wellington Regional Council area).

Sport Wellington is governed by a Board of Trustees and managed by a CEO and three General Managers. We believe physical activity has the power to transform lives and want everyone to have equitable opportunities to be active, healthy and happy.

Sport Wellington’s main funding partners are Sport NZ, the three District Health Boards, ACC, New Zealand Community Trust, Eastern and Central Community Trust, Four Winds Foundation, and Wellington Community Trust. We also partner with other like-minded organisations such as territorial authorities, trusts and corporate sponsors.
