This new and innovative initiative by Paralympics New Zealand was launched last year in the lead up to the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games to be held in August 2021. The Para Sport Pop Up is now travelling around the country to meet with the New Zealand public.

It is a great opportunity to learn about the Paralympic Games, disability, inclusion, diversity and para sport in New Zealand.

Come and enjoy different ‘have a go’ para sport activities including:

  • Vertical jump test challenge.
  • Handcycle challenge.
  • Give Wheelchair basketball a go.
  • Play a Boccia game.
  • Get a photo with Someity, the Tokyo 2020 mascot.
  • Blind football virtual reality experience.
  • Learn more about Para sport.
  • Meet with Paralympians, para athletes or local para sport organisations.
  • Leave messages of support for the New Zealand Paralympic Team.
