Playing Sports

So you want to know how to get involved in playing sports?

Sports are a great way to develop skills that you will have for life, have some fun , learn what it means to play as part of a team and to make new and possibly even, friends for life. They also keep you fit, get you off the couch and help to refresh the mind and body. In New Zealand, we are so lucky to have so many local, state and international facilities and programmes.

Here is a list of some of the associations that you can get in touch with to find out who offers what in your area for your chosen sport or even sports!
