The Event Centre is available for club meetings, seminars, workshops, casual sports and school sports. There are kitchen facilities, showers/changing rooms and toilets.
Out in the Waihi community there are several ongoing programmes/ activities that welcome new members.

If you are keen to to do some regular training remember the Run Waihi group meets every Saturday morning at 8am outside the Waihi Gold Discovery Centre for a run / walk around the pit.
Xterra Trail Challenge Waihi — start and finish line is at Dickies flat and runs though the Karangahake Gorge — is on this Saturday November 17. Come on out and support your runners. I’m looking forward to this event showcasing our beautiful local environment, and to all the local volunteers who are going to help marshall — a huge thank you from Sport’n’action for supporting this event.
Saturday night skating is on in the Waihi Event Centre with kids and adults doing inline skating. This is during term time 6pm-8pm. $5 entry fee, includes skate/scooter hire. Thanks to Waihi Miners Inline hockey club.
