Winter sports heat up at Ngā Puna Wai

Rain, fog and frost, it's all part of the game at Ngā Puna Wai.

The cold winter weather hasn't stopped the action at this versatile venue, with a busy timetable of events and activities scheduled over the colder months.

From ultimate frisbee, hockey trials and the return of rugby league, winter sports enthusiasts are making the most of this fabulous new facility.

We've now completed the handover from construction to a fully operational site at Ngā Puna Wai, marking the end of a three year journey from design to construction. Thank you to everyone who has come on the journey with us.

Now with spring on the horizon, what are you waiting for - come on down and have a go! We'd love to see you here.

Ngā Puna Wai – The ‘Ultimate’ Partnership

This winter, under the lights of Ngā Puna Wai, ultimate (frisbee) discs can be seen flying as Canterbury Ultimate grows participation and activates this space in a unique way.

For more information on Thursday night Skill Development sessions please follow Credo Ultimate Club on Facebook or read more here.

A Place to Call Home

Ngā Puna Wai was at the centre of a significant sporting milestone last month, with the return of Canterbury Rugby League to a first class home turf, complete with lights, grandstand crowd and a nail-biting second half. Read more here.

Construction now complete

The opening of the rugby league facilities completes the handover from construction to a fully operational site. 

This milestone marks a journey of three years for the Project Team and Stakeholders from taking the site master plan through the various design stages then onto construction to deliver the fantastic facilities we have today. Ka pai everyone!
