Netball, table tennis, hockey and BMX among sports to receive $5m council funding

Auckland Council has agreed to $5 million in funding for eight sports organisations across Auckland in the first funding round from its new Sports and Recreation Fund.

The $120 million Sports and Recreation Facilities Fund introduced last year as part of Mayor Phil Goff’s Long-Term Plan, was designed to help fund the development of more sports and recreation facilities needed to cater to Auckland’s growing population.

“The investments made possible through the Sport and Recreation Fund ensure sport in Auckland is on a strong footing now and into the future.” – Mayor Phil Goff.
