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, Taipōrutu 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.
