Sixteen sports were confirmed for the Outgames. The latest, and final addition, was Football (Soccer) confirmed on Saturday 30 October 2010.
As well as the competitions you could participate in – and win medals for – we planned some carefully selected demonstration sports so you could try something new.

The best venues in Wellington were booked for the sports. For swimming, for example, that is the Regional Aquatic Centre, and for tennis, the Renouf Centre. Both facilities have previously hosted international competitions.
Sports were selected on the basis of their appeal in the community (swimming, running and ten pin bowling are popular at international LGBTI competitions), but many also had strong spectator appeal – dancesport, tennis and diving in particular.
We congratulate all those who particiated in the 2nd AsiaPacific Outgames in Wellington, 12-19 March 2011.
