Meet whānau who love, live and breathe basketball in Tauranga Moana. Nau mai, haere mai i runga i te aroha me te manaakitanga o te whānau o Te Maru o Mauao.
KO WAI MATOU
Te Maru o Mauao was established in 2017 and hails from Tauranga Moana iwi of Ngai Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui and Ngāti Pūkenga. As a Māori basketball club, we welcome all whānau who love playing poitūkohu, basketball. A main highlight for the club is attending the NZ National Māori Basketball tournament in January, in Rotorua. To play for Mauao at the tournament you must be Māori, live within our boundaries of ‘mai ngā Kuri a Whārei ki Wairākei’ or whakapapa to one of our three iwi of Tauranga Moana. We are proud of our whānau for securing national titles over the years and attribute this to our Uara club values, our fun caring, positive playing, coaching environment, and strong sense of belonging.
