Bringing the community together

The Gladstone Sports and Social Complex is situated on Gladstone Road, just after the Gladstone Inn, in the middle of the Carterton district.

Set amongst farmland with beautiful views, the Complex is not only home to a number of local sports clubs but it can also be hired out for parties, weddings and other events. Lots of parking, a large hall (with sound system), a kitchen, toilets as well as a bar area (with chiller). The hall can be fitted out with the ‘silks’ which transform it into an indoor marquee ready for your creative touches!

Outside, there are playing fields and tennis courts and the Ruamahunga River flows next to the playing fields. It is a five-minute walk to the neighbouring Gladstone Inn and over the road is the Gladstone Gun Club.

Freedom camping is possible at the Gladstone Reserve on the other side of the river.


The Complex was built by the Gladstone community in 1979 and is run as an incorporated society by an elected committee from the area. Operating costs are covered by donations from the community, hireage fees and fundraising events such as community balls, quiz nights and other functions.

Community contributions

The Complex is a community owned sports and social amenity that has to generate revenue to cover running costs like insurance, maintenance and power. Our Rugby, Badminton, Tennis, Netball and Hockey clubs all pay annual fees and we are very grateful for their support.

Locals are warmly encouraged to become members for an annual fee of $50 for a family or $25 for individuals. Your contribution will help keep this great community asset up and running.

Contributions can be paid online to ANZ Masterton 06 0541 0388298 00. Please include in the reference details: the initial of your first name, your surname and the first line of your address.

Thank you for helping the committee of local volunteers continue the work of past generations and for future generations to come.
