Waikite Rugby Club has a long & colourful history. Founded in 1901 it is one of the oldest rugby clubs in the Bay of Plenty. It encompasses traditions, manaakitanga and more importantly, whānau.

The Future of Waikite Club

Waikite will progress forward to become more innovative and a more community based club where everyone is welcomed through our doors. It is our responsibility to teach our rangatahi and care for our kaumatua in keeping with our core values and tikanga.
