The inaugural Proud to Play tournament in Aotearoa New Zealand will take place in Auckland over 13-20 February 2016.
Proud to Play features 11 sport competitions, and registrations are open!
The sports programme includes: badminton, bridge, dancesport, golf, lawn bowls, an ocean swim, road running, swimming, ten pin bowling, touch, and volleyball.
The sports competitions will be hosted in quality venues across Auckland: the Henderson Sports Hub, the West Wave Pool and Leisure Centre, the Henderson Squash Club, Pins Lincoln, and Te Pai Tennis Club. The ocean swim is part of the well-known Bean Rock Swim.
The philosophy of the Proud to Play tournament is based on the idea of playing sport in an inclusive environment – being proud to play, regardless of one’s sexual orientation or gender identity. This aligns well with the Auckland Proud Festival, which the tournament sits alongside.
