Venue and accommodation


The residentials for the July-December programme will be held at Miramar Golf Club, a championship eighteen hole golf course next to Wellington Airport. We recommend accommodation at the newly completed Rydges Wellington Airport. Rydges is a 4.5 star hotel within an easy 5 minute walk from Miramar Golf Club. It offers 134 rooms, free, unlimited WiFi as well as an on-site gymnasium. Even if you live in Wellington, we encourage you to stay overnight and benefit from the opportunity to get to know the other participants better (not to mention avoid any traffic woes!).

Accommodation is not included in the programme price. Participants need to organise and pay for this and their own travel to/from the venue.

If you have any queries regarding the programme, please email 


“I was not only able to apply what I had learnt through the programme at work very successfully, but found real value in the networking opportunities with leaders from other sports in the region. As we often face the same challenges, having other sports leaders to share experiences, knowledge and ideas has already had a hugely positive impact in my organisation, and in particular during the challenges we faced under Covid-19 restrictions.”
