Tairāwhiti faces a critical shortage of indoor court facilities. This was highlighted by the Sport New Zealand National Facilities Strategy for Indoor Sports, which ranks it with the lowest public indoor court availability per capita in New Zealand.

Despite longstanding barriers to indoor recreation, recent efforts including our community facilities strategy aim to address the issue. The Tairāwhiti sports facilities business case, a collaborative initiative involving strategic partners Gisborne District Council, Trust Tairāwhiti and Sport Gisborne -Tairāwhiti, outlines a comprehensive plan for regional recreational facility projects.

How to get involved

  • We asked for feedback to help shape the feasibility study. That survey closed 15 March.
    This was to help us understand our community’s usage, desires and perspectives relating to the existing indoor multipurpose centres and seek ideas for future opportunities.
  • Community webinars and workshops... coming soon
    to meet with the project team and contribute to the development of the feasibility.
    These will aim to be in-person with video-conference options too
    All presentations will be available online after for anyone interested or who weren't able to attend.
