More than a Game launched

The Waterboy’s founder Thomas Nabbs at the launch of the charity’s new coffee table book, More than a Game.

Sports charity The Waterboy’s coffee table book More than a Game had its official launch at Paper Plus in Cambridge this month, seeing more than 70 of the organisation’s supporters get together to celebrate.

The Waterboy’s founder, local Thomas Nabbs, said it was great to catch up with so many people who have supported the initiative in big ways and small.

The book is full of inspirational stories of kids the sports charity helped in 2017, as well as messages from Kiwi sporting icons such as cricketer Tim Southee, netballer Casey Kopua, rugby player Israel Dagg, and rowers Robbie Manson and Lucy Spoors.

Proceeds from the book – which is available at Cambridge Paper Plus for $45 unsigned or $100 signed by the sportspeople involved – will support the work The Waterboy does, breaking down barriers that stop Kiwi kids from participating in sport.
