It was on the 1 April 1964 that a group of like-minded men called a public meeting with the intention of forming a club in Papatoetoe, which it did by the end of that first meeting. The Club received an official registration certificate on 4 March 1965, and 19 Dunnotar Road was duly purchased.
Stage 1 of our premises was completed in December 1967. The Licensing Commission granted our licence on 29 January 1968, and the Clubrooms opened for business that same afternoon. As the club became more popular we needed room for expansion so two adjoining properties on Dunnotar Road were purchased during 1970. The Club saw the completion of Stage 2 in 1971.
It is interesting to note that ladies were not permitted full entry to the premises until March 1982. By 1978 the sporting sections were so popular that more space was needed and extensions were completed in 1979.
