In 2022 we are looking to compile a directory of all local Trades, Services and businesses to advertise to all our club members, affiliated clubs, residents etc.

This will be an electronic directory available on website etc and also available in hard copy

An annual fee of $50 & GST will be levied to advertise in this.

It will be arranged in categories, sub-categories etc according to the businesses advertised.

For expressions of interest in this, or for more information, please contact

Glenda on 0274359762 or belfast.rfc@xtra.co.nz

Our Junior Club caters for all Children in Under 6 - Under 13 Grades, and combines with Merivale-Papanui RFC for Under 14 - Under 18 Grades as Merivale Papanui/Belfast, aligning back to Belfast for Colts & Senior Rugby.

The Club's full time Director of Rugby is Mpho Mbiyozo - mphombiyozo@gmail.com, and our full time Facilities Manager is Glenda Spillane - belfast.rfc@xtra.co.nz.

The club rooms and Sheldon Park are in constant use for rugby activities, as well as other activities and events, such as Belfast Touch, Rotary Club of Belfast/Kaiapoi, Belfast Friendly Club, Eclipse Marching, Belfast Netball Club, CLROC, Social Clubs, Seminars, Weddings, and private events.
