Recreation

If your children decide they want to play cricket, rugby, sailing or netball, or even learn to ride a bike or a horse, you can find a club or sports field not too far from home.  Perhaps you fancy a hit of tennis, you’re a keen golfer, or maybe you're more interested in water sports or swimming, then look no further than Glen Innes and its nearby suburbs.

Remuera Golf Club

This private members’ golf club was established in 1934, and members and corporate guests are welcome to enjoy a game of golf and other events. As well as the 18-hole course, there’s practice facilities, a clubhouse, a café, bistro, the 19th bar, and a variety of function rooms, all set among picturesque woods and lakes. Coaching is provided through the club’s Golf Academy.

Kohimarama Yacht Club

Children from about nine years old are welcome to join up and learn all they need to know to enjoy sailing and compete in club events.

Meadowbank Pony Club

Meadowbank Pony Club is aimed at under-25-year-old horse owners, offering grazing for horses, summer hacking, plus programmes for children interested in learning more about horse care and ownership. It also runs courses to help young people develop leadership, mentoring, organisational and safety skills.

Water Sports
Water Sports

For the more adventurous, the proximity of the Tamaki Estuary offers a number of waterborne activities, including kitesurfing and windsurfing. And for the inquisitive, why not explore the natural diversity of its coastline by sea kayak. There’s never a dull moment when you live by the sea.

Scarbro Tennis Centre

Whether you’re wanting some tennis practice, some hard competition, or a bash around with friends or family, Scarbro Tennis Centre is the ideal venue.

The centre holds school holiday programmes for children of all ages which include a mix of crafts, sport, games and other activities.

Glendowie Boating Club
Glendowie Boating Club

Situated at the mouth of the Tamaki River is an ideal environment for this family oriented club and the perfect training ground for aspiring sailors. The club was founded in 1949 and has three classes sailing most days, Mistrals, Starlings and Optimists with fleets of around 60 to 70 boats. The club offers development programmes for every level.

St Heliers Bay Pony Club
St Heliers Bay Pony Club

Who would have expected to find 14 paddocks, a jumping arena, riding arenas, a cross-country course, stables and pretty well anything else needed for a pony club, all in the centre of the Eastern Suburbs? Rallies, events and competitions are run for members and the general public during the year and the club also runs regular horse management and riding lessons.

Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club
Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club

On the sheltered waters of the Panmure Basin, flotillas of yachts bobble about as young, and not so young, sailors learn the ropes. This club trains junior and older sailors and runs sailing competitions and regattas throughout the year. Training courses are available for all ages and stages, and the club has its own fleet of sailing dinghies that budding sailors can hire.

Colin Maiden Park
