A Community Sports Bank has been set up in your community to allow everyone access to sports

gear, and get more kids active. If you need or want sports gear (including new mouthguards), ask

your school office staff or a teacher for a Community Sports Bank card. Take the card to your Sports

Bank to get free gear.

If you’ve grown out of sports gear from last year, or don’t use it anymore, drop it in, so it can be

used again and someone else can enjoy playing because of it.

Your nearest sports bank is

St Ninians Uniting Church, 208 Karori Road, Karori. Open Tuesday 4pm -5.30pm

Gear can also be dropped off at Karori Community Centre, 7 Beauchamp St, Karori. Open Mon,

Tue, Thu, Fri 9am – 2pm, Wed 9am – 6pm)
