Encouraging more people to play longer since 1989
The New Zealand Masters Games is the largest and longest running Masters multisport festival in Aotearoa New Zealand.
First held in Whanganui in 1989 with more than 1400 people taking part in 31 sports, the Masters Games have since grown in popularity, attracting participants from all over New Zealand and around the world.
Alternating annually between Dunedin and Whanganui, the Games have become an integral part of those cities’ sporting and social calendars, largely driven by massive pools of locals who put their heart and soul into making it a great experience.
