Elwood Park


Hastings Rugby & Sports


Hasting Rugby & Sports is the combination of three of the oldest Rugby Clubs in Hastings – Hastings RFC, Celtic RFC and Hastings High School Old Boys RFC. The three clubs amalgamated in 1995 and subsequently moved to their Elwood Road clubrooms in 2007. After two years of sharing facilities with the Polo Club, Hastings Rugby & Sports RFC decided in 2009 to undertake to build their own clubrooms. Located adjacent to the current shared facilities, the new clubrooms is a fantastic addition to the Elwood Road sports grounds.

Patton’s Involvement

Patton Engineering provided the structural steel and metalwork for the new clubrooms.

Our Comment

Patton Engineering has a long association with Hastings Rugby & Sports. Both Managing Directors played for two of the foundation clubs, with Gavin playing for Celtic and Mike for Hastings Schools Old Boys. The company continues to have an ongoing association with the combined club through sponsorship, providing employment for players and through sideline support of the teams.

To be able to be a part of the future growth of a club that has been a big part in the personal and business lives of Gavin, Mike and Patton Engineering is very satisfying. We are sure that Gavin, Mike and all of the team at Patton’s will take great pride in the facilities when enjoying the comforts of the new clubrooms whilst cheering on another Hastings Rugby & Sports victory.
