The Sporting Memories Network celebrated it's 10th Birthday  on Thursday October 14th, 2021.


 NOSTALGIA 2021, an online sports trivia quiz, co-hosted by our friends from the AUT Centre of Active Ageing, got the party started at 7.30pm. This was immediately followed by the UK Conference, which started 10pm NZ time (10am UK time) and ran through to midnight/midday (depending upon your time zone). The 80 minute was MC'd by Sports Radio host Mark Stafford and featured special guest appearances from a number of NZ athletes, including All Blacks, Tall Blacks and Tokyo 2020 Olympians.

A full review of the evening is under construction.


 The event also included the launch of a 10 item - 10 day fundraising auction, featuring some signed sporting memorabilia, including an All Blacks Jersey from the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and some unforgettable experiences such as Glamping at Eden Park and Go-Karting at Hampton Downs.

Keep Connected

Talking about sport, and sharing nostalgic sports stories, can often trigger some fun and positive responses. If it is too stressful for an older person to attempt to connect using online methods, however, simple audio contact over the telephone can be rewarding.

This video provides suggestions for sources of information as well as tips on how and when to use reminiscence over the telephone.

Ambassadors Needed

The Foundation is on the search for some sporting memories ambassadors to help us spread the word around Aotearoa New Zealand.


To qualify you have got to love talking about sport as much as the trustees and our sporting memories facilitators.


You must also be willing to promote our products and services within your existing personal and professional networks.

There will also be opportunities to represent us at fundraising events and club launches.
