Sports Inc. has teamed up with Total Property Works and Passive Fire NZ to create the Aotearoa Invitational presented by SkyCity.

The New Zealand Celebrity-Amateur Team Championship will be held on April 8 & 9. Eighteen high profile celebrity skippers will captain eighteen corporate teams at Windross Farm Golf Course. The event will be raising funds for Mates in Construction to support the essential work the charity is doing to reduce the high suicide rates in the construction industry.

The field to date includes a stellar line-up of New Zealand's sporting celebrities each looking to captain their amateur team to golfing glory. All Black greats Christian Cullen and Olo Brown, current and former BLACKCAPS Neil Wagner, Marty Guptill, Nathan McCullum and Craig McMillan, women's world long drive golf champ Phillis Meti, Warriors legend Awen Guttenbeil, two-time Olympic rowing gold medallist Eric Murray and Team New Zealand grinder Simon van Velthooven have all signed up as celebrity skippers. More captains will be announced in the coming weeks.
