Social sports leagues on the Wellington campus , Ngā hākinakina whakangahau ki Pukeahu

At Massey University in Wellington we have three social sport leagues — volleyball, netball and futsal. Social sport is open to tertiary students from all over Wellington.

Games are played at Wellington High School’s indoor courts, which is just a short walk from Massey University Gym. Social sport is a great way to make friends, be active and have fun.
