We have a number of regular sports hosted here at The Mangawhai Club. This is a great way to socialise and meet new people, and an opportunity to hone your sporting skills! Use the links below to learn more about each of our sports, and please contact us if you have any questions!









The official opening for the bowls clubhouse and green was on 3rd December 1994, after many years based in Hakaru. A second green was completed in the 1996 season.  Today we have one of the finest facilities around!  Our greens are in demand for many Centre fixtures and our clubhouse used for many private functions.

October 2002 saw the beginning of a new era, with the formation of a Chartered Club - what we now know as The Mangawhai Club!

In 2018 both Men’s & Women’s Bowling Clubs amalgamated into Mangawhai Bowls Inc. 


Come and join Mangawhai Bowls! We enjoy our weekly Club Days along with many tournaments played at home and away.
We also meet every Tuesday during summer at 6pm for Business House Bowls. This is a social evening of fun.

From a small beginning four years ago (6 people) the Petanque Club has gone from strength to strength. On a typical Club day there can be up to 48 players on the terrains.

We are well served with 8 terrains that have been upgraded – the base is lime rock, then crushed shells have been scattered so this combines well for a very competitive surface.

Winter Petanque commences after daylight saving finishes, and runs each Sunday from 2.00 to 3.00pm. We also enjoy hosting visiting clubs and have had several visits from Northland Clubs. The Club has Petanque Boule available to use should you wish to have a game when visiting The Club.

Each Thursday after Labour Week End Summer Petanque is played from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. Membership is free however, unless you are a visitor, you need to belong to the Mangawhai Club. A nominal fee ($2 pp) is charged to play Petanque each week and there are fun prizes to be won. Our Petanque meeting is a relaxed and social gathering. (No experience needed to join us).      

There are also light meals available from our Club Caterers.
Contact Paul Freeman 431 5950, Ted Tuffey 027 262 4909 or Val Cleaver 431 4042 for more information about playing Petanque at The Club.
