Gore has a surprising range of excellent sporting and cultural facilities for a small town.
The Gore Multisports Complex houses the Gore Aquatic Centre with a 25m pool, the four-court MLT Event Centre and Ice Sports Southland ice rink. Just outside is the Eastern Southland Hockey water turf.
The Southern Equestrian Park will impress horse lovers with its all-weather arena at the Gore A & P Showgrounds. It’s also home to Southland Showjumping and Southland dressage.
We have three golf clubs within the District. The main one at Gore, a quiet tree-studded course at Waikaka and another at Mataura.
As you might expect in a rugby-mad nation, there are rugby fields, as well as bowling and croquet greens, football, and athletics fields and a softball diamond. Many sports offer social team events.
