Maori Touch National Panui 2019

E nga mana, enag reo, enga waka katoa,

On behalf of Maori Touch Executive it is regrettable that the 2019 Annual Maori Touch tournament is postponed for this year.

Unfortunately we are unable to secure funding to be able to host the torunament in Rotorua.

We are exploring options for 2020 - with two rohe offering to host.

The support for Maori sport organisations is currently being explored with Sport NZ, and we are hopeful that funding support will be the outcome of this work.

Maori Touch NZ are supportive of Te Matau o Maui hosting a Junior Maori Tournament in October 2019

Please pass this on to your networks.

Nga manaakitanga,

Carol Ngawati (Chairperson - Maori Touch NZ) and Sue Panapa (Maori Touch NZ National Coordinator)
