HoopNation Tournament NZ

Hi Guys,

Wondering if anyone has played in the tournament, its been running for about 5years. ive been told the best classic / social tournament around keen to find out if anyone has played in it.

Keen also to see if any other Aussie teams are keen on heading over as I will take mine.

Yes - it's a great tournament. The top comp is full of really good NBL players/ANBL players. Tait's team is regularly stacked.

The event should even be better this year as it's being moved to Tauranga/Mount Maunganui which is a beautiful place. God knows why it was ever in Whanganui (nothing to do there for people that don't know).

Sounds like a good concept. Would love to see something similar in Australia.

Maybe 3 divisions:

Pro: allowed professionals and lower
Semi Pro: allowed SEABL/premier league etc and lower
Amateur: allowed anyone division 2 and lower

Possibly do regional tournaments for the amateurs, leading to state final tournaments for both amateur and semi pro levels, leading to a national tourney for all 3.

Perhaps the professional level tourney could just be the NBL preseason tourney, coinciding with the national finals for semi and amateur levels.
