Halberg Games regional events are taking place in Canterbury, Auckland and Palmerston North in October 2022 open to young people aged 8-21 with a physical or visual impairment!

Halberg Games regional events coming in October 2022!

The Halberg Foundation is pleased to announce a series of regional, two-day sports festivals in Canterbury, Auckland and Palmerston North this October.

Athletes will represent their region at their local event, which will include; sports, opening and closing events, festival activities and more! 

To find out what regional event you can attend view the Halberg Games Regional Events Map here.


For more information about the regional events read the Q&A document here or contact your local Halberg Adviser here.

Registrations will include full accommodation to day passes and will open in June 2022 here.


All athletes competing at any of the three regional events will also be eligible to apply for the ISPS Handa Talent Scholarships and Sky Sport Emerging Athlete Grant to assist them in funding and travel to support their sporting journeys. 

As we were unable to hold the Halberg Games national event in April we are delighted to give you something to train and look forward to. The full three-day, national Halberg Games will return in 2023.
