Sport in Kaikōura
Information about sport and recreation in Kaikōura and how we're working to increase social connection, health and wellbeing for all those involved (even from the sideline - that means you too, Mum and Dad!)
Kaikōura has lots of sport and recreation opportunities for young and old alike.
Most indoor sports (basketball, volleyball, badminton and indoor soccer) take place at the High School gymnasium (Rorrisons Rd). Netball, tennis and hockey use the school courts with soccer and athletics using the school fields.

The Kaikōura Lions Pool suffered extensive damage in the November earthquake and has been closed. The Council are working with the various organisations, groups and community members to figure out a way forward.
Many of our sport and recreation facilities were damaged in the earthquake. We are now well underway planning and repairing facilities that will serve our community well into the future. We have many amazing volunteers, coaches and administrators who are ‘getting on with it’ and making sport happen.
