The Te Wānanga o Raukawa owned Ngā Purapura facility in Ōtaki will again host some of the world’s top netballers in action at the up-coming pre-season tournament on April 20-22.

The partnership between Te Wānanga o Raukawa and the Central Pulse continues to develop as TWoR come on board for another year as Principal Sponsor (Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse).  

With the success of the 2017 tournament held in March last year it was inevitable that another tournament of this kind would again be on the cards for 2018.
