History - In 1994, four Ōpunakē men consisting of Gavin Gopperth, John Kensington, Merv Tamatea and Peter Burnnand discussed the possibility of developing a new sporting facility in Ōpunakē. It was realised that the then-current sporting facilities in Ōpunakē required upgrading. Several meetings were held to discuss the options, and it was soon realised that should any construction of a new facility take place, the project would benefit from the assistance that could be provided by local tradesmen. As a result, local businessmen Steve Corkill, David Gibson and Conrad Kuriger became involved.

Other members of the public also came onboard, and the Ōpunakē Sports and Recreation Trust was formed in 1993. As the facility was to be constructed upon a Council Reserve, The South Taranaki District Council insisted a referendum be held in the local ward in order to confirm local support for the proposed facility – the referendum showed that a majority of those that took part in the referendum were in support.

The Trustees and volunteers not only donated their personal time and labour during the construction of the facility but many products required during the construction were often obtained at less than trade prices. Local business support was exemplary. Sandfords Rural Carriers became naming right sponsors and as a result: The Sandfords Event Centre in Ōpunakē was open for public use in 2003.
