HVH Club Days

New members of all abilities and ages and visitors are always welcome.

No need to sign up as a member before your first time, just come along (arrive at 1:30pm) and have a go and see if it is for you.

We meet at our Clubrooms, at the Petone Recreation Ground, Petone, Lower Hutt – shared with the Petone Cricket Club in the North East corner of the park off Udy Street.

When you arrive, ask to speak to the Club Captain or one of the committee members and we will let you know what is happening that day.

Club uniform is not necessary. Just come dressed comfortably and appropriately to walk/run.

If you want to know more, get in touch with our Club Captain. See the club calendar to know what events and club days are coming up.
