Kaipara Flats Sports Club


Kaipara Flats Sports Club is the largest club in the area. Set in the centre of Kaipara Flats village on the magnificent Bourne Dean Recreation Grounds, we have a great clubhouse with Bar and Restaurant area as well as a huge deck overlooking our 3 floodlit Tennis and Netball Courts – and our large and well-maintained Cricket & Soccer pitch with Petanque terrain.

Thursday Night is the most important social occasion in the week, when the Clubhouse Bar & Restaurant open for our weekly social gathering which features a meat raffle & Members Draw. Most people in the community are members of the Club so it’s a great place to meet and catch up with all the local news.

New Members Welcome.
