Waiariki Winners

Congratulations to Waiariki A Wahine and Waiariki A Tane teams for taking out both finals.

Great hockey all round and a great tournament.  Thanks Waiariki.

Ka kite, drive home safe.

Managers Briefing


Attached is the briefing provided to managers 19.10.2018.  Please note hazards around the turf including the river and the playground where the felling of trees is taking place.  From tomorrow onwards cones will be placed around the venue and your vehicle may be towed.  We are still waiting on registration forms from some rohe.


Parking at Smallbone Park Rotorua

There are 2 parking areas.  The main parking area is inside Smallbone Park.  Ignore the trees on the map.    The second is a bit further along Devon Street on the left.

Waiariki are on the ball

Waiariki have the tournament organisation well underway so expect a great tournament this year.

While we adhere to the NZMH Kaunihira rules and regulations when organising a National Tournament we decided to introduce some new technology to the mix.  This year all draws and results will be live and up-to-date to the minute and accessible via mobile phones, tablets, and computers.  There will also be a live draw available on the big screen at the club house.  We will still be providing printed copies and adding the draw to the tournament handout, however adding additional methods for you to see when your game is, or who beat who, is now available.

For more information on this check for more information.
