After more than 150 years, the Hawkes Bay Club is allowing women to become members.

Women will still need to be invited and selected the same way men are.

President Marc Nel told Heather Du Plessis-Allan there's overwhelming support for the move.

“There will be some time that's required to make some further changes, obviously, to opinions and what not but I think it's a very good result."
