Taranaki Swiss Club

The Taranaki Swiss Social Club Incorporated was formed in 1952 “to conserve, promote and advance the cultural standards of citizens of Swiss blood living within New Zealand“.  It would also provide opportunities for the meeting together of citizens of Swiss blood in social, cultural or sporting gatherings.  The club would assist persons of Swiss blood to understand the obligations of New Zealand citizenship and to help introduce new settlers of Swiss blood into the New Zealand way of life.

In 1981 our Club house at Grace Avenue, Kaponga, was officially opened, and we are thankful that our members had the foresight and determination to build such a beautiful Club house.  The Club house had been planned and built over several years, and is situated on 1.5 hectares of land.  Our grounds are well maintained and have many trees and gardens adorning its land.

Currently our membership stands at just over 300; many members being actively involved in the various activities organised by our committee of fifteen.  We offer shooting – small bore and karabiner (big bore), keglen (9 pin bowling), jassen (Swiss cards), and various social functions (picnic, meals etc).  Our Club is very fortunate to have a Singing and Entertainment group which provides a varied programme for other clubs and organisations from New Plymouth to Waverley; we have also provided lunch and entertainment at our Club house for various groups who have enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food!!!  Our many talented musicians happily entertain at our various functions, and we are so lucky to have them!  We are thrilled that many younger people have joined the Taranaki Swiss Club over the past few years, and we look forward to seeing them at our many events.

See our upcoming events and venture out to Kaponga to participate in one of our many functions!!!
