Sport Wellington

Our vision is for everyone in the greater Wellington region to have life-long involvement in sport and active recreation.

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 51 (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.
