Sport Whanganui works with clubs, schools and organisations to create opportunities for people with a disability to participate and compete.

Our organisation advocates for inclusiveness so that more people can be more active more often, no matter what their abilities.

We work closely with local schools and clubs to support people to attend programmes and events such as Sport Ability Days and Halberg Games. If you are interested in finding out more about how we can support you or your whānau, please contact our Diversity & Inclusion Lead, Sarah Craig at 027 282 6717 or call the Sport Whanganui office on 06 349 2300.

Disability sport resources

We can provide support and advice to clubs and organisations regarding opportunities for activities that are inclusive and accessible for all.

Check out our Resources for Clubs for useful links and information.

Diversity & Inclusion

Everyone should have the opportunity to be actively involved in whatever sport or activity they choose, in whatever capacity they choose. Everyone should be encouraged to participate and enjoy play, active recreation and sport without prejudice, in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Head to the Sport New Zealand website for diversity and inclusion information and help with policies for your club or organisation.

Wheelchair Basketball

Keen to try wheelchair basketball? Open to all ages and abilities, these weekly sessions are for anyone wanting to try something new or looking to pick up new skills. No experience required, wheelchairs are supplied. An ultimate goal is to build a wheelchair basketball team that can enter into local and regional competitions.
