We would love to welcome new and returning players this season who are looking to experience the thrill of rugby, with Rippa and Tackle grades available for boys and girls aged 4 years and up. This season we are pleased to offer new players and any referred players 25% off their fees. If you already play for Glenfield Rugby Club and refer a player, you too will receive 25% off your fees as our way of saying thanks.

We have our second ‘Have a go/Muster’ Day coming up on 19 March. There will be lots of games to be played, skills and drills, and a few special guests. There will be a free Sausage Sizzle and a Lolly Scramble to finish. Any queries, please contact: Melissa Irvine - 021 129 7870 or email

BUAFC Football Opportunity

BUAFC would like to offer all girls interested in playing football in 2023 the opportunity to take part in the club Open Training for Year 7 and Year 8 on Friday evenings from Friday 3rd of March to Friday 24th of March at Shepherds Park 4pm – 5.15pm.

Children will be guided and supervised by BUAFC coaching staff , and a member of the BUAFC admin team will record attendance and take details for further communication. Teams will be selected for the winter league throughout the training period, and teams will be based on friends and relevant skills.

On top of that we are keen to promote girls football this year because the 2nd largest sporting event in the world is coming to NZ in July 2023. Birkenhead United will be the official training venue for the ITALIAN NATIONAL TEAM in their FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP campaign 2023.

This is a great opportunity for children to see professional female athletes up close and forge memories that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

To register your interest in attending please email
