About us

Raukawa ki te Tonga Poitukohu is a non-profit iwi basketball club based in Ōtaki. We provide community basketball kaupapa throughout the year such as tournaments, leagues, skills/drills sessions and team platforms for all of our community and iwi members.

Our kaupapa benefits our community, iwi members of all ages including our pepi who are our future generation right through to our older masters aged whānau.

As a club, it is our vision to nourish and support the physical and mental wellbeing of our community through the sport of basketball and through the various kaupapa we run.

One of our other most important goals is to contribute in some form to the revitalisation Te Reo Māori. In our efforts to do this we strongly encourage the use of te reo within the community through the sport of basketball.
