In 1985, the Taranaki Centre NZ Amateur Athletics Association set up the Taranaki Community Stadium Trust for the purpose of raising funds to build an all-weather athletic track in New Plymouth. The track and complex project was considered by the New Plymouth District Council in late 1997, and after reviewing several possible locations work began on the complex at Jubilee Park in Inglewood, the traditional home for Athletics in Taranaki, in the early 2000’s. The project was the result of the vision of Olympic athlete Norman Read and many individuals, clubs and local businesses gave time and energy to the project which took 15 years from conception to completion.
The TET Stadium & Event Centre was the first place in New Zealand to have an Olympic class Mondo track installed. Since then the venue has enjoyed patronage from Inglewood United Rugby Football Club and Inglewood and Taranaki Athletics, and drawn big sporting events like Ranfurly Shield matches, the Colgate Games and as a training venue for the FIFA U20 Football World Cup.
The overall aim of the Taranaki Community Stadium Trust and it’s major funders TET (Taranaki Electricity Trust) is to ensure that the stadium, track and function rooms are accessible to the widest range of individuals and groups from around Taranaki and the rest of New Zealand, for use that ranges from sport to business, private functions to major tourist events.
We have the experience, facilities and vision to put the ‘wow’ into your event.

We’ve used the TET Stadium & Events Centre for several of our events now and the service is excellent. We just love the venue as well because it is modern, well equipped and very central for all of our Taranaki farmers.
