In the second of our profiles on the six ‘non Premier' clubs around Wellington we take a look at the Paremata-Plimmerton RFC, based out of Ngatitoa Domain at Paremata.
Paremata-Plimmerton in its current form is the result of amalgamation of the Paremata and Plimmerton clubs in 1959. They reached what is now Premier status in the 1980s and have always had a reputation of providing development and skills to players. For the last three years they have been back at the top with a team in the Senior 1st grade competing for the Harper Lock Shield. They act as a feeder club to both the Norths and Premier sides while their teams are competitive on the field and enjoy the after match catch up in the club's friendly and vibrant atmosphere. The club has a very strong social culture and an excellent community spirit.
This year the club has six teams - Senior 1, Senior 2, U85 kg, U21, Senior Reserves and Presidents, plus their Golden Oldie ‘Jugglers' team. Their home ground Ngatitoa Domain consists of three playing fields and floodlit training areas. In addition, Paremata-Plimmerton runs a healthy junior club with a number of teams fielded at that level and boasts Christian Cullen as a past member.
The club is currently keen on developing its age-grade culture with plans to start a rugby academy. From these grades young players of promise can then gain further experience in their Senior 1 team with a pathway to progress to a Premier club if desired.
