Welcome to the Wellington Chinese Sports & Cultural Centre

The WCSCC prides itself on being the only NZ Chinese association who has their own home (facility) for over 35 years.  On weekends, the Centre is a hive of activity for all age groups - a timetable of events is listed below.    Basketball is on for all ages, cultural activites include dragon and lion dancing, Cantonese class for school aged children. The day concludes with Ballroom dancing classes for the light footed!   Many social activites are held here in the spacious gymnasium for the club which is also available for hire.  The Chinese Dragon, Lion and dancing girls performances are available for hire for private and community functions.   

The retired enjoy line dancing on Tuesdays and Saturday mornings.  Yau Yih Yun class for pre-school children is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.  Chinese Dancing is popular with the school age girls where they showcase their lovely dances during Chinese New Year celebrations.

In the early 1970's a group of dedicated, determined and farsighted people within the Wellington Chinese community had a vision of building a facility that would cater for the social, sporting, and cultural needs of the growing Chinese community.  Through determination, hard work, dedication and effort their vision become a reality in May 1977 with the official opening of the Centre buildings.  Today, several generations of our Chinese community have enjoyed the social, sporting, cultural and educational benefits of the existence of the Wellington Chinese Sports & Cultural Centre (WCSCC) facilities.
