Tawa AFC was founded in 1971, with two senior teams and approximately 200 junior players. Since then the senior club has grown to 12 teams including 2 ladies teams and the junior club to over 350 players.
In addition to this, having a close relationship with Tawa College who have 7 teams competing in the College Sport Competition.
The Senior club caters for players residing from Mana through to Wellington. The junior club was inundated with players from outside the area a few years ago and we have had to zone new players as we could not handle the numbers.
The club has its main playing ground and also its clubrooms at Redwood Park. Our training facility since 1992 has been Tawa Primary School which we floodlit as the Tawa Council was unable to provide a training ground. In 2005 we completed the floodlighting of Grenada North Park which will primarily be used as a senior training ground, leaving the school ground for junior training.
The Club has a golden spell during the 90’s reaching the semifinals once and quarter finals twice of the Chatham Cup. From 2005 the Tawa first team was runner up in the Capital Premier League three times before winning in 2009 and being promoted to the Central League. With an average age in the early 20’s the team has an excellent future.
The Club has provides playing facilities for serious, semi-serious, social and master’s players and welcomes new members in any of these categories. As with most clubs we are always on the lookout for coaches, managers or people who have an interest in football and wish to get involved in some manner.
