Situated in Poroti, 20 minutes from Whangarei, at the Mangakahia Community Sports and Recreation Centre, Mangakahia Squash Club has a strong history amongst the local community and the wider Northland area. Built in the squash heyday of the mid-70’s the club has two courts with aspirations of a third sometime soon.
The club typically runs the season from February to November with Wednesday nights being the main club night for seniors and teenage players. Junior players (up to 13 years) typically convene after school one or two nights a week for coaching and games. For the player wanting more competition, Mangakahia participates in the Northland-wide interclub competition on Tuesday nights and there are also many tournaments during the year including two events at the home courts.
Juniors Mondays 4 to 5.30pm Primary/Intermediate 5.30 to 7pm Secondary
Senior members are provided with the access code to the clubrooms so squash can be enjoyed at the club any time, all year round.
In recent years Mangakahia Squash Club has enjoyed considerable success amongst its junior ranks as well as fielding strong interclub teams in both the Mens and Womens events. We do however cater to the needs of players of all abilities, and are always happy to receive the support of our non-playing community as well.
