Halberg Junior Disability Games will be held in Auckland on the 5-7 October 2018
The Halberg Junior Disability Games is an annual three day sports tournament open to 8-21 year olds with a physical or visual impairment.

Participants experience an authentic Games village environment and can try new sports while pursuing further sporting goals. For some the Games may be a stepping stone towards future sporting goals and even representing New Zealand in their chosen sport.
