Sports & Recreation

New Zealanders are proud of their country’s sporting success, the quality opportunities they have to participate in sport and recreation, and the physical environment that encourages physical activity. The sport and recreation sector also makes a substantial economic contribution to New Zealand life. Our sport and recreation industries and occupations employ around 2% of the total workforce, and the sector contributes nearly $4 billion to GDP, or 2.1%.

Sport and recreation is a diverse sector that embraces innovative thinking, new technologies, and cutting-edge professional and business practices, while at the same time being deeply reliant on community and volunteer organisations and local government. MartinJenkins works with all organisations involved in the sport and recreation sector, including national sports bodies, high-performance sport organisations, and local government.
