The Napier RSA was founded in 1916 by local men who saw the need for an organisation to support and assist those soldiers returning from both Gallipoli and the European conflicts. Many were physically and mentally affected by the war and were finding it hard to re-adjust and fit into society.
In 1916 they formed the Returned Soldiers Association a safe, understanding, and social environment, far removed from the horrors of conflict. During the years changes were made to involve the wider community and is now known as a Returned and Service Association (RSA).
Membership 100 years ago was limited to only Returned Servicemen and women, now the Napier RSA doors are open to all forces personnel, their families, and the entire community.
Together we share remembrance, compassion & camaraderie as a legacy to the past and our tribute to the future. NZRSAs are a proud part of the fabric of New Zealand society and demonstrate its motto “People helping people”.
The Napier RSA has exceeded the visions of our founding members and has produced exceptional results with the integrity of their founding objectives which remain as robust as they did in 1916.

Napier RSA is a multi-use venue and encourages social activities in many forms. We host a variety of Adjuncts and Special Interest groups for members and the wider community. Our sporting adjuncts compete at both a local and national level with interclub tournaments being held throughout the year.
