COVID-19 Updates

Captains Lunch

Women in Sport Aotearoa (WISPA) and the Trans – Tasman Business Circle (TTBC) are excited to announce the date for the previously postponed 2020 Captains Lunch. It will now be held on Friday 4 September 2020 and we are delighted to advise that Eden Park remains our venue sponsor.

Following a sell-out success in 2019, the Captains Lunch is returning for its second year, bigger and better than ever!

As partners, WISPA and TTBC firmly believe that the Captains Lunch is an important dialogue, celebrating women with the focus on bringing sport and business communities together in one room, to meet and connect in person. With COVID-19 playing havoc with sport and disproportionately affecting women’s sport globally, it’s also a place to celebrate New Zealand’s leadership into the recovery phase and the three women’s World Cup events coming, from 2021 – 2023.

Over 300 sport and business leaders are expected with 250 tickets already sold. This year, the event will also mark the start of the journey toward Aotearoa New Zealand’s hosting of the 8th IWG World Conference on Women & Sport in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, from 5 – 8 May 2022. WISPA is a charity that exists to transform society through leadership, advocacy and research, ensuring that all women and girls gain equity of opportunity to participate, compete and build careers in play, active recreation and sport in Aotearoa New Zealand. Funds raised from the event will be used by WISPA to support its key programmes.

Tables will be hosted by an array of “Captains” from across sport and recreation in Aotearoa New Zealand (see below). This will include a mix of female athletes, coaches, leaders and male allies for change.
