The club is small, but very active, attending local tournaments, also hosting their own tournaments four times a season. The club meets at the hall in Waiau Pa on a Tuesday evening, and although now finished for the season, are always looking for new players. Anyone interested in a fun night out will be very welcome, and beginners to the sport are always welcome. Please phone Chairman, Diana Hamer on 09 232 1281, or secretary Mick Almond on 09 232 1933, and they will be sure to contact you when the season reopens in April next year.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
