It’s a question of sport


It’s being billed as Queenstown’s “ultimate sports quiz - like no other”.

Sports nuts are being invited to duke it out next Friday night in a fundraiser for the Wakatipu High School sports council.

The fun quiz, kicking off 7pm at the Queenstown Memorial Centre, aims to raise about $5000 to $7000 for school sports uniforms and equipment.

“At the moment, a lot of parents are having to buy uniforms,” sports coordinator James Munday says, adding more than 500 students are engaged in sport.

“Longer term, we’re looking at being able to help in terms of teams going away to national tournaments and things like that.”

Teams of up to five are asked to register via the school’s website,

Entry is $100 per team, with quiz-goers asked to wear their favourite sports team’s gear.

The quizmasters will be sports council members Craig ‘Ferg’ Ferguson and Richie Heap.
