‘Kua titia te upoko o te Rangatira nei i te piki-kotuku, ki te piki-turangi
We recognise Alan – our Rangatira -and take pride in his award for the contribution to Aotearoa Maori Tennis. The Maori traditional feathered emblems of the sacred white heron are our symbolic acknowledgement.
Tena koe Alan. ”
Nga mihi aroha.
