Make it easy for others to find out about you

Research has shown that people who are thinking about being active often don’t know where to go or what to get involved in.

The Activity Search from Active Canterbury makes it easy for people to connect with local activities.

Get listed in the new Activity Directory

Active Canterbury and Sport Canterbury launched a new Activities Directory in November 2018 to help Cantabrians to connect with local physical activity opportunities.

Sport And Rec Guide

This Activities Directory is part of the Greater Christchurch Sport and Recreation Guide, and captures information about local classes, groups and programmes. The listings are searchable by activity type and locality - making it easy for people to connect with providers in their area.

Complete the online form to list your activity in the new Directory. All activity providers in Canterbury are invited to add their activity details.

Here the benefits of joining the Activities Directory:

  • The directory will be widely promoted by Active Canterbury and Sport Canterbury, encouraging visitors to the website.
  • The directory will be used as a referral tool by Sport Canterbury and other organisations - it will become the ‘go to list’ for health and activity practitioners.
  • The directory has a strong community focus – it gives all local providers the opportunity to list and promote their activities at no cost.

The Active Canterbury Activity Search will be updated and connect visitors to the new directory, once sufficient listings are added - replacing the current link to the CINCH database.

Getting listed on CINCH

CINCH (Community Information Christchurch) is an online community directory of clubs, community organisations and continuing education courses in the greater Christchurch area. It includes over 6,000 listings and is another good way to help others find you!

CINCHChristchurch City Libraries contacts every organisation annually to check their CINCH details are correct.
You can also update your organisation or club's listing on CINCH any time online.

Alternatively you can submit the CINCH Update Details or New Listing Form for the Christchurch City Libraries to make the changes for you [PDF, 73kb].
