Next month we will be running our Junior sport section and invite all managers or coaches of junior teams to send in reports and pictures of your team.

Currently I have contact details of  football,  hockey, netball and rugby coaches. We would love to hear from other sports being played. Please either contact me for publishing details  (beckett36@gmail.com ) or send your report to that address. The deadline is 4pm Wednesday May 29th. However it is always helpful to us if you can have it in a bit earlier.

Meanwhile:

How time flies as we are already gearing up for a new season for the Juniors and Senior team.

If you haven’t heard much about us, where have you been! 

Each year we have at least 6 junior teams (of all ages and abilities) taking to the field to represent the town and a ‘slightly’ older contingent playing in the Wairarapa 2nd Division.

Last year our Junior teams were fantastic – everyone playing their part to ensure that Martinborough FC will be a force in the Junior leagues for many years to come (and having coached a few local ‘newbies’ pre-Christmas there is a lot of talent out there).

So if you are looking for something for your children to do (ages from 5 up to 12/13) then please get in touch at the email below and we can then keep you in the loop with our planned activities, pre-season training etc…

For the Senior team, we will be looking to start pre-season training on Tuesday nights – the first being 12th Feb 2019 down at the football grounds from 6.30pm to about 8pm. 

Martinborough Golf Report

Happy new year to you all – hopefully everyone is enjoying/surviving this heatwave…sorry farmers….hooray for the grape growers, hopefully it will be a good vintage!!

The course is looking supreme and is playing better than ever.  Those of us lucky enough to play in this year’s Spark Pro-Am tournament were exceptionally grateful to the hard work of an army of volunteers that had a major clean up on their hands after the gale force winds that ripped through on the Wednesday.  I understand that the chainsaws and leaf blowers were in action by sunrise!  The day was a huge success and most enjoyable, with a fine banquet of food served after prizegiving!  The winning professionals Mark Purser, Luke Kwon and Ryan Chisnall tied on 65.

Men’s interclub is underway– Division 5 won 10-5 against Titahi Bay away and Division 11 won 9.5 to 5.5 against Boulcotts Farm – keep up the good work guys! … Continue Reading
