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!

    Fancy yourself a bit of a bowler?

    Our Annual Lawn Bowls competition is BACK!

    An afternoon sipping cold beverages, wearing your crispest whites and flashing your skills on the bowling green. 

    We have Nelson's golden oldies on hand to teach you the tricks and tips to getting the upper hand. There is a cash bar and nibbles provided.

    We can only accomodate 30 people for this event so grab a mate and sign up ASAP. The competition is in pairs but there will be plenty of opportunity to pair up on the day.
