A special general meeting will convene at 5pm on Friday 10th June at Functional Strength HQ (7A Piermark Drive, Rosedale, Auckland) for the following reasons: 
  • Clause 18 in our Constitution is not adequate to comply with the requirements of the New Zealand Policy on Sports Match-Fixing and Related Corruption. 
  • Sport NZ has enforced a deadline of the 30th June to implement a policy that complies with these requirements so we must act promptly. 
A requisition letter will be sent out to all financial members of OWNZ outlining the constitutional changes suggested and a link to the OWNZ Anti-Match-Fixing and Sports Betting Policy that will be implemented if this vote is passed. 


A big thank you goes out to the Olympic Solidarity and the NZ Olympic Committee for funding our HP Training Camp that has helped our NZ team prepare for our upcoming Rio Olympics Qualification event! 


Our Senior, Junior & Youth men and womens team are in their final preparations for the lead up to this major international event. To view the full team and to keep up to date with event information please click HERE

Thank you to the generous support of the following organisations for contributing funding to alleviate costs associated with international travel and accommodation for the support staff and senior athletes:
