Membership 2024

After a tremendous season last year where our senior rugby team were narrowly beaten in the Senior B final, we are looking to go one in better and make 2024 our year! We enjoyed avid community support for the team with great crowds at home games and a committed band of supporters for the away fixtures. The Tairua support base is getting quite a reputation in Thames Valley as a committed team, Club and support base second to none! 

In 2023 we ended the season with a successful trip to Rarotonga and we have another busy year ahead with exciting functions and innovations to grow our support base and re-charge our community sporting teams.

The focus of the Club this year will be to field the senior team along with the continued support of our vibrant cricket, junior rugby, junior football and a newly rejuvenated netball section.

Aside from rugby, the Club is working hard in promoting all sports in our town. We have some issues with the condition of Cory Park Domain which is suffering from lack of maintenence and the after effects of inclement weather in the past year. Supporters will have seen the efforts we have had to go to, as in pumping water from the field in order that games may proceed and the refurbishment required in the Clubrooms to recover from inundation from the cyclone event. Social cricket matches are hopefully on the agenda if we can get urgent attention to the field including the cricket pitch area.

We have had spasmodic support for our walking football, T-Ball and softball events on Friday nights but less than favourable weather has somewhat stymied progress with these events. We are committed to continue with these promotions this year. Utilisation of the new surface on the tennis court enclosure has been curtailed somewhat as it remains a construction zone. Once the surface is fully available we will be looking to promote other exciting sports like netball, hockey and perhaps futsall. We already have hockey surrounds on order and through generous donation a good supply of hockey gear.

The ability to participate in these social sporting activities has been a most successful addition to our Club and we have welcomed many new people to our club, from a wide range of age groups and interests. Long may that continue!

The Club continues to work hard to maintain our existing facilities and considerable effort and expense has been incurred lately refreshing the club rooms and the addition of a great new deck area. Our electronic scoreboard is getting great use and has been a great addition to our amenities. A lot of money and resources is continuing to be spent on new uniforms for all our sporting teams as we appreciate looking good is a big part of a sucess oriented club and we intend to build on that in all means possible.

We encourage all our supporters to become a member of the Club to enable participation in all the above sports and allow us to continue to provide both sporting and recreation facilities for all members of our community. 

Safe to say that without members, clubs just cease to exist. Members help create the future, we hope that you can continue to support us.
