Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement next week! And be ready to mark your calendar for 3rd annual Unison Female Rugby Gala Day!

Last year was a massive success, with the support of Unison and Sport Hawke's Bay, over 500 girls and young women came along to play rugby!

This year Hawke's Bay Netball will be joining in on the fun and inviting boys to take part in a netball tournament also, thus changing the name to 'Switch Gala Day'.

This is an opportunity for girls aged 7 to 18 to come along and give rugby a go in a fun and safe environment.

  • Year 3-4 Rippa
  • Year 5-6 Rippa
  • Year 4-6 Sevens
