Become a Games Host for 2019!


From 1 – 10 February 2019, Whanganui will be celebrating the 30th New Zealand Masters Games and we’re looking for a team of passionate, welcoming, and reliable ‘rockstars’ to play a huge part in sharing the manaakitanga of Whanganui as we welcome the 5,000 participants and visitors to our River City.

We treasure our hosts who are the face, heart and soul of the Downer New Zealand Masters Games, and your involvement will help to ensure this event continues to be an iconic New Zealand must do! The Downer New Zealand Masters Games are a uniquely Kiwi experience that participants, spectators, hosts and visitors all rave about. The relaxed atmosphere, friendly people, sporting action and festival fun – the biggest party in New Zealand.

Being a host at the Downer New Zealand Masters Games is not only rewarding but also provides an opportunity to share your skills, learn new ones, meet new people, inspire others with your stories and be a part of a world class event.

Ready? Let’s go….
