ranfurly_shieldInformation for teams and players using the new turf

Grandstand $10.00

1. The ground now has a perimeter fence – access will only be available through the manned gates.
2. WBRU Player Passes – normal conditions apply (WBRU player passes will not give you access to Wairarapa Heartland Football games. There is an hour between the rugby and football, so you can make your choice then if you wish to attend – charges to football matches will be the same as rugby).

Look for the weekly “What’s on at the Park” for details

It will take a few weeks to bed in the new systems and dealing with the ebbs and flows – we ask for your patience

So how does a normal week now look at the ground?

  • Monday – Rugby trainings
  • Tuesday – Football trainings
  • Wednesday – College Sports
  • Thursday – Football training
  • Friday – JAB and Friday games
  • Saturday – Rugby and Football
  • Sunday – Rugby trainings and Women’s Football

In 2014 Trust House Memorial Park was used for 100 hours.

In 2015, 100 hours will be exceeded in the first 4 weeks after opening.

Dead Ball Charlie’s Highlights of the week

deadballCan’t believe this weekend the new turf and the stadium will be up and running. It’s been a train station down at the Park over the last 6 months and DBC can’t wait for the first ball to be kicked.
