2020 has been an interesting year! Sadly we had to cancel all our Regional events this year due to Covid-19, but we were able to go ahead with our National Championships.

A huge shout out to all our athletes who competed on the 24th October, who worked through unusual and testing circumstances, to still achieve a stage ready physique for the

2020 NABBA New Zealand National Bodybuilding Championships. 


We are grateful circumstances allowed us to go ahead with the event.  It was a great celebration of our sport, and we have received so much positive feedback in the days following the event.  Thank you all for your feedback, it makes it all the more rewarding for us knowing everyone had such a great time and enjoyed the experience


We do not do bring these events about alone, so a few words of appreciation;

A BIG THANK YOU to our Sponsors– We had many local sponsors, that have got behind us to run the 31st Nationals in Auckland.  We encourage you all to support these businesses!!


We also would like to express our great APPRECIATION to The NABBA Team, our dedicated Area Reps & NABBA Executive; Gavin Maxwell, Janine Haywood, Rick Ujfalussy, Linda Leliveld, Tina Merriman, Tawhiri Walsh, Bevan Mackenzie

This event is a reflection of the great Team we have working together to bring you NABBA in NZ!

They all work ‘above and beyond’, for the sport of Bodybuilding, bringing you events around the country, providing athlete support across the Regions, and volunteering their time and effort for the development of our sport in NZ.

As we reflect over the past 31 years, there are numerous people that have been significant contributors to NABBA -

We thank you all.


A word of appreciation must go to our Judges that also volunteer their time – Judging is a huge responsibility and it was a huge day to get through! – Thank You commitment and professionalism!


Also thank you to all our volunteers that have given their time as ‘the team behind the scenes’

So a huge thanks to everyone who has been a part of this great event our 31st New Zealand National Championships!
