Guests including the Rt Hon John Key, were welcomed onto Sport Waitakere’s new home where our team are based, at the Waitemata Rugby Club grounds in Henderson, Auckland.

Councillor Linda Cooper, attended the opening event alongside Auckland’s Deputy Mayor Penny Hulse, Hon Paula Bennet, MP Alfred Ngaro, MP Kelvin Davis and MP Phil Twyford. 

“On the grounds of one of the best rugby clubs, it’s in the heart of the community where it needs to be…keeping our kids active and well into adulthood and beyond” says Linda Cooper. 

The new grounds and building include an edible garden, fruit trees, recycling and composting. The office has standing desks and space is available at the rugby club nearby for staff to take part in bootcamp, yoga and pilates.
