Mai have teamed up with the legends at "There's A Better Way" to bring you HOOPS N HOPE!
Hoops N Hope is all about dropping basketball courts into communitites, to help bring positive change throughout New Zealand and empower our community groups! The first stop is Te Kura Māori o Ngā Tapuwae in Mangere, Tāmaki Makaurau. The team at Hoops N Hope & There's A Better are going to install a brand new Kiwi Courts surface and Airtime Basketball Hoops at the school, so our rangatahi can channel their passion for sport! To learn a little about it, check out the video above.
The idea is to drop courts in communities around Aotearoa, but we can't do it without the help of businesses around the country. If you're a business that is keen to donate and sponsor a court, or multiple courts and get amongst our communities, then get in touch below and see how you can help!
