This year marks the 25th an­niver­sary of South Waikato Su­per Sports.

Unique to the South Waikato, Su­per Sports started out in 1986 as an at­tempt by four busi­ness­men to as­sist Trudy Boyce ( eques­trian) and Andrew Whit­ford (cy­cling) to com­pete at the 1988 Olympics and the trust con­tin­ues to­day to raise and dis­trib­ute funds to as­sist lo­cal sports­peo­ple to rep­re­sent New Zealand on the in­ter­na­tional stage.

Su­per Sports is all about as­sist­ing with travel and competition costs so time can be spent train­ing and less time spent on fundrais­ing or seek­ing spon­sor­ship. 25 years on, Su­per Sports has granted in ex­cess of $ 150,000 to South Waikato sports peo­ple cov­er­ing a wide range of sports.
