Inner Wheel began on the 10 January 1924 and in 1930's clubs were formed in Australia, New Zealand and Norway.
In 1967 International Inner Wheel was formed which gave an opportunity for qualified members in any country to serve as Officers and to strengthen the unity of the organisation throughout the world.
International Inner Wheel links together members in different parts of the world including Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia & the America’s.
The Inner Wheel Club of Napier was established on 27 November 1936, thus starting Inner Wheel in New Zealand.
Since that date Inner Wheel New Zealand has grown to cover all of New Zealand, including five Districts and two off-shore clubs within District NZ291.
