KO WAI MATOU
Established in 2017 we hail from Tauranga Moana with whakapapa affiliations to Ngai Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui and Ngāti Pūkenga. We embrace all Māori basketball whānau who live here, and we are rohe regionally based. A highlight for the club is mustering teams to attend the NZ Māori National Basketball tournament each January in Rotorua. To play for us at the tournament you must either live here ‘mai ngā kuri a Whārei ki Wairākei’ are our boundaries or whakapapa affiliate to our iwi from Tauranga. We have a few national titles under our belt, which we attribute to our Uara club values, our fun caring, positive playing, coaching environment, and a strong sense of belonging. We are Te Whānau o Te Maru o Mauao ki Tauranga Moana.
