Sponsored Athletes

Kā Kaiaka Kaitautoko

Due to the effects of COVID-19 we have made the decision to focus on charities and organisations that support the wider community in the fundamental areas of health and wellbeing.

As a result, we are cancelling our long-running athlete development sponsorship programme and will review funding priorities again before the 2022/23 financial year.

Find out more about the new Get Active Community Grant and how to apply here.

QLDC sponsored athletes

In previous years, QLDC Sport and Recreation sponsorship has provided successful applicants with free access to Alpine Health and Fitness, Alpine Aqualand (both located at Queenstown Events Centre), Arrowtown Memorial Pool and Wānaka Recreation Centre.

We continue to applaud our district's inspirational athletes, several of whom continue to make their mark on the international stage, and welcome them to use our facilities for training and recreation.
