One of the events Sports Inc. helped create and manage is the popular Aotearoa Invitational presented by TPW. The third edition of the tournament was staged recently at the impressive Wainui Golf Club.

Billed as the New Zealand Celebrity-Amateur Team Championship, the event saw eighteen sports celebrities each captain a corporate team in pursuit of golfing glory.

The Aotearoa Invitational is also a philanthropic event, looking to raise funds for a charity partner. This year I AM HOPE was the recipient of $60,000, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, participating teams, and celebrity skippers.

And for the record, this year's champion team were the lads from Craftsman Plumbing, expertly skippered by rising Black Sticks star, Anna Crowley! Anna joins BlackCaps captain Tim Southee and Olympic bound high jumper Hamish Kerr, as champion team captains.
