BASKETBALL

Basketball is one of our strongest and most popular codes at Pakuranga College. The program boasts 20 teams, with over 200 athletes. The Premier Boys’ and Girls’ teams play in the Senior A Premier competition.

 

Recent success has seen the Premier Boys travel and compete in California, USA and the Premier Girls were winners of the NZSS Nothern Cup Championship in 2017 and 2018.
