Background information

Wellington City Council is proposing a number of all-weather turfs in central Wellington and we are delighted this is happening. We believe there should be other turfs geographically located in the Northern suburbs of Wellington. Tawa has an enviable record in sport and a high percentage of residents playing sport. There are many ground closures in Tawa and the current grounds are vulnerable to bad weather. For these reasons, we believe Tawa should be granted an all weather multipurpose turf.
