After several years of little to offer in the sport and rec and play space, Pokeno is starting to see impetus in several key areas. 

  • Waikato District Council have started preliminary earthworks for the long-awaited Munro block sports facility which will include redirecting the existing waterways and raising the site for flood protection. Preliminary drawings include sports fields, multi-use courts and an indoor facility. Further consultation with the community will take place to ensure local needs and aspirations are accommodated. 

For enquiries/feedback contact: jasonm@sportwaikato.org.nz 

  • Creo Gym Pokeno opened November 9th to much fanfare and with more than 60 locals signing up that day. A brand-new gym in a new building - the result being a modern clean space with a comprehensive workout area, free weights and machines, and a separate area for classes. A limited menu of protein shakes and supplements are also available.  

Phone: (09) 236 8288 for more info. 

  • The Pokeno Tennis and Recreation Club continue to renovate the old tennis facility. The intention is not only to provide sporting opportunities but also offer Pokeno a venue for all kinds of events, from birthday parties to business meetings. Sports deliverers looking to set up new activities in the area can also pay a casual user fee to utilise the courts and clubrooms.
