NYP has a strong events calendar. Check out both our upcoming events and previous events below and on Facebook. Registration for sports teams is also through this page.

Regular events

The NYP monthly drinks are regularly attended by 50-80 young people (members and non-members). It is a fantastic way to get to know people in an informal, relaxed setting. There are no sign-ups or name badges; simply come along and support the locally owned pub by grabbing a drink and join in on a conversation. Our members were all new once so are very welcoming. If in doubt, look out for one of our committee members.

Educational, social and networking events

Supplementing the monthly drinks, we host a variety of educational seminars and social get togethers (including an annual ball). These include a networking seminar, investment seminar, first home buyer's seminar and members dinner and wine tasting. Whether you want to learn or have fun - NYP will have events suitable to you.

If you have a fantastic idea for an event, we would love to hear it. Our most successful events have been suggestions from our members. Please get in touch!

    NYP is excited to announce that it will be putting forward another netball team this spring, for a shorter season.

    In order to be on the team, you need to have registered on the NYP website as well as paid subs (click 'pay online' when completing registration process.) Registration will be available from 30 August and is a strictly first-in, first-served basis.

    Game info

    Games are played at Saxton Netball Courts on a Tuesday evenings. The season starts on Tuesday 4th September and runs for four weeks until 25th September.

    We will notify you of the game times via our the NYP Netball Facebook page.

    Subs are $20 for NYP members and $30 for non members. Team numbers are limited to ensure everyone gets appropriate game time, so you must register and pay on our website in order to be in the team - it is not enough to simply join the Facebook group (but you'll need to be in that too so you know when you'll be playing!)

    You must be ok with taking goofy team pictures to put on our Facebook and Instagram every now and then.

    In a town where you are recognised everywhere you go, NYP are bringing mystery back into the night. Reclaim your anonymity at the Nelson Venues & Events Masquerade Ball.

    The time has come to feast, drink and dance late into the night! Adopt a new persona and embrace fresh confidence, bravado and exotic dance moves.

    Included in your ticket is dinner, drinks (wine, beer and non-alcoholic) and one of Nelson's best live acts, Rabbit Hole. 

    Buses to Richmond and Nelson will be provided at the end of the night to see you home safely.

    Tickets on sale now:

    - NYP members $95 
    - Non-members - $115

    (Tickets are not refundable nor resalable.)

    Doors will open at 7:00pm, please arrive by 8:30pm at the latest, as guests will only be able to exit into reality after then.

    Come as anything you want, except intoxicated. Intoxicated people will be denied entry, and anyone who becomes intoxicated or disorderly will be required to leave. Otherwise, with identities kept secret… the night sky is the limit.

    A huge thanks to our naming sponsor:


    Nelson Venues & Events are leaders in event organising and management and have made this ball possible through their sponsorship and partnering with NYP. They provide the expertise and knowledge to get your next event off the ground with as little stress as possible. 

    They are also the dream team behind two of Nelson's premier events, Ciderfest and Marchfest. Get your ball ticket early and keep an eye on our social media pages for giveaways to both these events during the lead up to the ball!
