ask neighbours in
By CLINTON LLEWELLYN
Basketball Hawke's Bay is planning
an open day next month to meet its
new neighbours once it officially
moves into its new headquarters at
the old Wairere Bowling Club in
Board members of Basketball
Hawke's Bay recently met bowls club
committee members to hand over the
money to finalise the purchase of the
100-year-old bowls club in Whitmore
Park. It will become basketball's new
home in the region on July 1.
Faced with dwindling membership
and with its lease expiring at the end
of June, Wairere Bowls Club
members voted unanimously to sell
after they were approached by Bas-
ketball Hawke's Bay in October.
Wairere will merge with Port
Ahuriri Bowling Club in Battery Rd
on July 1 under a new name, Port
Wairere president Elsie Tonks
said members of both bowls clubs
were overwhelmingly in favour of the
We're over the moon,'' she said.
We're taking 43 members over to
[Port Ahuriri] and they have prob-
ably 50 to 60 members, so we're
pretty much doubling in size.''
Basketball Hawke's Bay chairman
and former Hawks player John Sum-
ner said it was essential for his
organisation to move from its old
headquarters at Onekawa to accom-
We've quadrupled in size over the
past five or six years. We have so
many people playing now we've run
out of court space,'' he said.
This will give us the opportunity
of one day having a new stadium
here and, if nothing else, at least
some new outdoor courts and 3-on-3
courts,'' he said.
A new entity, the Basketball Haw-
ke's Bay-Wairere Trust, will own the
building, which will also house office
space for the HBS Bank Hawks.
Basketball HB general manger
Paul Trass said the open day would
involve a barbeque and basketball
games using portable hoops, with a
date yet to be set.
