In 2023 they organised a weekend trip to Picton but this year through common friends, a group of 30 came from Waitara and were the guests of Mercury Bay Club pool players.

Sunday was their friendly tournament day but on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning they enjoyed The Lost Spring, Smitty’s, The MB Club, and Grace O’Malleys, water excursions and eating out.  “We felt like real tourists,” said Tyrell Crean, one of the Waitara organisers. “We have enjoyed excellent accommodation and service at The Peninsula Hotel and people here have been very friendly and accommodating,” added Tyrell.

The Waitara team are keen for this to lead to an exchange visit as part of their aim to build relationship with other RSA’s around the country.

Even though it was a friendly set of games, careful scores were kept and Waitara won.
