About Us

Ngatapa Rugby and Associates Sports Club was founded in 1957 in a tin shed on a substandard pitch. The first person to training lit the fires to make sure there was hot water for the showers after training.

A lot has changed since then, including a hot water system upgrade to gas - much to the delight of the first person to training.

Membership of the Ngatapa club includes senior and junior players from all over the Gisborne district to participate under the Ngatapa banner in rugby, hockey, soccer and netball. We draw people from Tokomaru Bay to Matawai, Tiniroto to Rere and many who work in the rural sector join the club as a good way to meet like minded spirits.
