Published on : Thursday, January 28, 2016

sport festivalThe very first Proud to Play sports festival is coming to Auckland from 13-20 February 2016.

This new week-long event includes 15 sports and sits alongside Auckland’s Pride Festival. It is aimed at the LGBTI community, their friends and whanau.


About 500 people from across the Asia-Pacific region are expected to register and the organisers think the Auckland community will be a great host.


The 15 sports offered are: badminton, bridge, dancesport, dragon boating, golf, lawn bowls, netball, an ocean swim, road running, roller derby, swimming, tenpin bowling, tennis, touch, and volleyball.


All levels of participation are offered, from social and entry-level grades to competitive, and you don’t need to be a member of a team right now to participate as the organisers will find you a team once you register.


The sports competitions will be hosted in quality venues across Auckland: The Trusts Arena, the West Wave Pool and Leisure Centre, Pins Lincoln, and Te Pai Tennis Club. The ocean swim is part of the well-known Bean Rock Swim.
