About Us

Who We Are and What We Do

Sport Bay of Plenty is a not-for-profit organisation helping more people in our community get more active, more often.


Since it's inception in 1987, Sport Bay of Plenty has been helping to get people in our community moving and to keep them going. We do this through:

  • Programmes that enhance people's health and wellbeing by helping them achieve their physical activity goals.
  • Support with resources, tips and advice.
  • Workshops, forums, events and activities that encourage physical activity throughout the Bay of Plenty region.

Sport Bay of Plenty goes out to bat for the people who make sport, play and active recreation happen.

We know everyone needs encouragement and volunteers need help. We are the support crew on the side and leaders in the field. It doesn't matter who your team or group may be, we help you to get out and get active. We do it because we know everyone will feel better for it.

Living in the Bay of Plenty, the opportunity to take part in sport, active recreation and play is in abundance in our region - a place where nature is our playground. Sport Bay of Plenty’s geographical area covers from Waihī Beach in the north to Turangi in the south, to Cape Runaway in the east and to the Kaimai Range in the west. The area is split into three sub regions; being Eastern BOP, Western BOP, and Central BOP with offices in Tauranga, Whakatāne and Rotorua to service these sub regions.

Our Values:

Lead the Way: Inspire the community, motivate and empower others.

One Team: Foster a positive team spirit, collaborate and share knowledge.

Keep it Real: Connect with our community, create opportunities and do what we will say we will do.
