Taranaki Newspapers achieved the amazing feat of having a team each year in the 50 year old competition but sadly haven't returned after there 50yr stint with the club which concluded in 2017-2018. We look forward to hopefully seeing them again at some stage in the future. Business House is an evening of fun competition, fitness and a chance to socialise outside of the workplace. We have the bar open and everyone is welcome to stay back and catch up at the end of the evening competition. We stock a range of non-alcoholic drink;: water to zero beers plus a range alcoholic beverages; beers and spirits. We encourage responsible drinking practices for all, especially if one has to also drive!
