If New Zealand has rugby, the Philippines undoubtedly has basketball. It is the most popular sport being played across the country. It is the unofficial national sport in the Philippines. Every street, every suburb, every town, city and schools and universities will have a team. It is so entrenched in Filipino society, almost every street corner will have a basketball hoop. It is not just a sport. It is a social, cultural and commercial phenomenon.

It is no wonder that Pinoys coming to New Zealand will find a way to play the sport not only for exercise but more importantly to connect with other kababayan bringing with them family and friends who also enjoy the game. Players don’t mind travelling to a centre or a town to play.
A Filipino sports competition will always have basketball because you can be sure there will always be players who would like to play whether for fun or for competition.

At PP2019, the games will be played in four venues: UNIREC, The Peak, Hamilton Boys High school and YMCA.

Please refer below for the groupings and venue schedules:
