Sporty is the digital platform officially chosen by Netball NZ for member and competition management for the community game of netball nationally. Sporty.co.nz is supplied by Sportsground Ltd, and is the largest web software platform for managing sport in New Zealand. NNZ is now meeting the costs of Sporty under a centralised enterprise agreement.
The Sporty platform was chosen by NNZ after a formal process that included an extensive review of competing technology. The Sporty platform continues to be continuously developed to support the evolving needs of Netball Centres across New Zealand.
Most Netball Centres in New Zealand were already subscribing directly to solutions from Sporty. The NNZ agreement means that for 8 years from 1 December 2022 Netball New Zealand will meet the costs for a comprehensive suite of solutions from Sporty for all Centres nationally.
NNZ is meeting the costs for all Centres to receive the following solutions from Sporty:
When people register online, each record automatically updates to an online member database that is provided for each club and school in New Zealand. All records automatically become visible to the Centre and upwards to the Zone and NNZ. Data can only be used at each level for the purpose it was provided. NNZ will be providing guidance on data privacy and obligations under the Privacy Act 2020 and the Incorporated Societies Act 2022.
As soon as possible. Please complete this Services Request form and someone will be in touch. Please note the last date for Centres to request new services for the 2023 season is 1 October 2022. This is to ensure there is sufficient time to get your Centre set up and for you to communicate any change in processes to your clubs/schools this year.
Sporty.co.nz is part of the Sportsground.com group
