Nau mai ki te iwa tekau mā rua o ngā tau
mō te Whakataetae Tēnehi Māori
Maori Tennis returns to Rotorua after a 23 year absence!
Rotorua last hosted the event in 1995, but it had its beginnings in Rotorua, when in 1926 Sir Apirana Ngata and his great friends, Tai Mitchell, Pei Te Hurinui Jones and Tukere Te Anga, were instrumental in assisting him to write a constitution, thus forming the inaugural New Zealand Māori Lawn Tennis Association (NZMLTA) during the Māori Championships, of Easter 1926, in Rotorua.
Membership of the Association shall be open to Māori or any person married to, or in a relationship with a Māori.
The exception is that Non-Māori cannot play in any singles events, but can play in the doubles and mixed events only.
