Meet our efficient and qualified team.
I got into Basketball at Logan Park High School where we made the final of schools nationals, and I then played junior rep Basketball for Otago. After finishing my degree in Physical Education at Otago University I worked abroad for a number of years in the sports industry in Australia and Britain, including as Chief Executive of Tennis Wales, and then Chief Executive of Wellington Hockey when I returned to New Zealand. Now back in Dunedin as General Manager of Basketball Otago and we are aiming to maximise and build on Basketball in Otago being the number one participation sport at secondary schools.
Game Development Manager
My name is Greg Brockbank, I am the Game Development Manager at Basketball Otago.

Workforce and Competitions Officer
Born and bred in Oamaru and just recently spent the last 6 years in Ōtautahi before moving back down South at the end of 2021.
I have been involved in basketball since I was in Primary School and started officiating at the age of 13. In 2018, I started Referee Training and have continued to train and support young officials in their development.
I have been working in the sports industry for nearly four years and I am looking forward to continuing to help grow our sport, both in officials and competitions.
Get in touch with me anything officials (referees, scorebench, and stats), social media, club, and secondary school competitions related.
Community Development Officer
Basketball Otago is a familiar place for me. From the age of 12 I have worn the Blue and Gold, attended morning academies trainings, played high school, club and social basketball, as well one of my first jobs during high school was refereeing intermediate basketball games, now known as KiwiHoops.
After high school I ventured outside of Dunedin to experience college life and play basketball on a Basketball Scholarship at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where I studied Business Administration with a concentration in Sport Management. 4 ½ years later I returned to New Zealand to attend Lincoln University on a basketball scholarship where I completed my Masters in Sport and Recreation Management.
Basketball has provided me with so many opportunities. I feel very honored and privileged to be in this position as the Community Development Officer.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for anything related to KiwiHoops, Girls Got Game, Diggers, Miners, and any Social queries.
