Napier's multitude of sportsgrounds cater for just about every code available in NZ. Key facilities are McLean Park (for major events), and Park Island, where dozens of teams, of all ages, can be seen playing football, rugby, netball and hockey simultaneously.

Major sports facilities include the McLean Park complex, which encompasses an outdoor sportsground of international standard and the Rodney Green Centennial Event Centre (formerly known as the Centennial Hall).

Nearby, Nelson Park caters for cricket, tennis and petanque. Park Island's grounds provide facilities for many outdoor codes, while Tareha Recreational Reserve has been more recently developed to meet the growing sporting needs of the Taradale area.

Bookings are essential for all sportsgrounds and facilities managed by the Napier City Council.

If weather conditions are extremely bad, it may be necessary for NCC to close the grounds for play. These decisions are made in consultation with the sports codes.

We ask that at the start of each season, one representative from each code is nominated as a Council contact. We'll contact this person if weather threatens closure of a sportsground. This person is responsible for notifying their members and the media of any closure or transfer of grounds.
