For A Spectacular Celebration!

In 2019, Whanganui will proudly host the 30th Anniversary of the New Zealand Masters Games – a significant milestone as it secures its space in New Zealand’s Sporting History as the largest and longest running multi-sport event in New Zealand!

The New Zealand Masters Games are open to anyone as long as you meet the minimum age for your chosen sport (usually around 30 years of age!). There are no qualifying standards to participate, just a healthy appetite for fun, trying new sports and enjoying the social element Masters Games are renowned for.

Whanganui looks forward to welcoming you to a spectacular celebration of 9 days of Masters Sports and 10 nights of entertainment at the Games Village, right in the heart of Whanganui’s CBD.

Welcome From The Games Manager!

It is a huge privilege and honour for me to welcome you to the 30th New Zealand Masters Games in Whanganui.

In New Zealand, sport and recreation is embraced by young and old, across all walks of life, and plays a significant part in our everyday lives. The New Zealand Masters Games embodies this spirit of participation. Many of us will know friends, family and colleagues who will be participating, and I look forward to being among the thousands of locals and visitors inspired by seeing athletes of all ages and disciplines in action in our top-class venues.

Some of you may be participating for the very first time, others may have many Masters Games under their belt. For all, the New Zealand Masters Games represents new challenges, new experiences, and new friendships.

For our new Masters Games friends from outside Whanganui, I invite you to enjoy all that our part of the world has to offer: our rich Arts and Heritage culture, our abundant outdoor attractions, our legendary hospitality, and our beautiful environment.

I hope the 30th New Zealand Masters Games provide you with memories to last a lifetime, and inspire you to continue your personal journey, spurred on by the lifelong love of sport.
