About us


The growing importance of people of Indian origin in various sports encouraged us to launch the Indian Newslink Indian Sports Awards in 2012. These Awards were the first of its type for the Indian community in New Zealand.

For more than 16 years, Indian Newslink has been reporting the achievements of our sports personalities in a number of fields, including Soccer, Cricket, Tennis, Netball, Hockey, Golf, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Boxing and Kabaddi. While some of them have risen to the national level playing for the country in international matches and tournaments, until five years ago, there was no avenue to celebrate the achievements of many others as a community.

In instituting the Indian Newslink Indian Sports Awards, we hope to fill the void in this area. These Sports Awards will recognise and reward not only established players and veterans but also young aspirants.
