Sport Whanganui is a Regional Sports Trust (RST) and is funded through regional contracts, sponsorship and funding applications.  Our vision is for active, healthy and connected communities. Our team is based in Whanganui in the lower North Island and services the Whanganui, Rangitīkei, and Ruapehu districts.

We take a ‘local’ approach to the needs of the community, advocating on a national level and working alongside local government, schools, clubs, health providers and individuals to make active opportunities easier to access.

Sport Whanganui is governed by a Board of Trustees and our main funding partners are Sport NZ, Te Whatu Ora, New Zealand Community Trust, Grassroots Trust, and The Lion Foundation. We also partner with other like-minded organisations such as territorial authorities, trusts and corporate sponsors.

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini

Our strength does not come from ourselves alone, our strength derives from the many.
