Paul Nathan Fencing Ltd


Paul and Jackie Nathan are well known Melville stalwarts. Paul has played for the Club since 1979 and has played and coached in every senior grade Melville has. Senior Coach from 1997 to 2000, coaching co-ordinator from 2001 – 2004, U21 coach 2004 – 2007, Club Captain 2008 – now, Committee member 1998 – now. Paul was awarded Life Member status in 2012. He coached the MHS 1st XV to back to back finals, winning the 2nd Div title and Secondary School Coach of the Year in 2013. 4 of that team currently play for the Melville Premiers and the Waikato Juniors. 1 has gone on to make the NZ U20 trials.

Jackie became more involved in the Netball side of the Club after the youngest child became a teenager. She took over the coaching reigns and immediately made a difference, Melville qualified 4th in the Hamilton Netball Competition behind proverbial top guns Verdettes, Uni and Pheonix. Last season, she came back and coached again so it looks like they will be here for a while yet.

PNF have been a major contributor to MRSC and have employed up to 6 Premier players at a time! They have also shouldered the costs of running the Melville High School Academy which they have done for the past 6 years. They continue to be strong supporters of Melville rugby.
