This year’s Ethkick is to be held on
Saturday, 28 September 2019 at Tauranga Boys’ College fields on Cameron Road, Tauranga.
The tournament is hosted by Multicultural Tauranga and New Zealand Police with support
from Blue Rovers Football Club. The entry fee will be $40.00 per team, as previously. However, there will not be a national tournament this year, i.e. games will only be played locally without a national final.
This year Multicultural Tauranga will be running the tournament alongside the ‘New to the Bay Expo 2019’, which will be held at the same venue. This is an event to welcome newcomers and support them to access services and information for positive and successful settlement in the community.
Men’s and women’s teams are welcome.
Please note that the registration deadline is the 21 September 2019.
For more information and registrations forms please contact Multicultural Tauranga on (07) 571 6419 or e-mail: email@example.com

As part of the 2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition, Downtown Tauranga is bringing together five winning images from the 2019 Hitachi City Art Exhibition. “This exhibition also celebrates our sister city relationship with Hitachi, Japan,” says a statement from Downtown Tauranga, the organiser of the exhibition.
“Last year the Trustpower Photographic Exhibition winners were featured in Hitachi City and we are reciprocating in 2019 by displaying their images in our city. Tauranga’s sister city relationship was created to promote goodwill and mutual understanding between the citizens of each nation and contribute to the peace of the world. Hitachi became a sister city of Tauranga more than 30 years ago. The ongoing friendship between the two city councils has resulted in 3 yearly exchanges and continuing cultural and learning opportunities.”
The exhibition is free to the public and is a partnership exhibition between Downtown Tauranga, Our Place, Multicultural Tauranga, Tauranga City Council, Tuskany Agency, Creative Bay of Plenty, Education Tauranga and Sun Media. It was officially opened by Mayor Greg Brownless on Monday, April 15 at 9:30am.
Throughout the month of the exhibition, there is an opening invitation to the public to make a paper crane. Each paper crane will be hung in the Our Place marquee – to create a ‘senbazuru’, or 1000 paper cranes, as a public art installation and symbol of peace to celebrate the sister city connections.
After the opening ceremony, the first paper crane making session will take place on Tuesday April 16 from 10.30am to 11.30am, under the marquee at Our Place, with a second session on Wednesday April 17.
The exhibition will run from April 15 to May 10 2019.
