Welcome to the Gladstone Sports and Social Complex

The Gladstone Sports and Social Complex is situated on Gladstone Road, just after the Gladstone Inn in the middle of the Carterton area of the Wairarapa.  Set amongst farmland with beautiful views, the Complex is not only home to a number of local sports teams but it can also be hired out for parties, weddings and other events.  Lots of parking, a kitchen, toilets, outdoor spaces as well as a bar area (with chiller) and large hall.  The hall can be fitted out with the 'silks' which transform it into an indoor marquee ready for your creative touches!

Outside, there are playing fields and tennis courts and the Ruamahunga river flows next to the playing fields.  It is a five minute walk to the neighbouring Gladstone Inn and over the road is the Gladstone Gun Club.

History

The Complex was built by the Gladstone Community back in 1979 and is run as an incorporated society by an elected committee from the area.  Operating costs are covered by donations from the community, hireage fees and fundraising events such as community balls, quiz nights and sports days.

In our gallery, you'll find pictures of the Complex and some of the events.
