About Basketball New Zealand

Basketball NZ vision is ‘A hoop in the heart of every community’.

Basketball in Aotearoa has experienced strong growth during the last decade with more people playing, watching, and becoming fans. Basketball now has a strong foundation to build a sustainable future and foster more quality opportunities for our tamariki and rangatahi.

The Basketball Strengthen & Adapt Plan is the culmination of months of extensive consultation and research across the basketball community. The resulting Plan includes eight improvement areas that will help transform and strengthen basketball in New Zealand.

One of the key transformational areas is Growing the Game for Women and Girls.

Basketball NZ is committed to ensuring there is a significant female representation at all levels of leadership. This will provide a strong female voice shaping the direction of the game, and create basketball offerings tailored to the factors that motivate women and girls at different ages to start and continue to play.
