Sporting Congratulations

James Matheson NZ Men's Floorball Team 2016Floorball International Representation

Floorball is a type of indoor hockey that originated in Scandinavia. It is a fast-growing sport around New Zealand, particularly in Wellington where there are school, social, and club leagues. The New Zealand Men’s floorball team recently took part in the World Cup Asia Oceania regional qualifier held in Pattaya, Thailand.  Wellington High School student, James Matheson, was part of this team.
The other countries represented were Australia, Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Korea and Singapore. The New Zealand team included seven members of the U19 national team. Although the men’s team didn’t qualify for the World Cup they gained valuable international experience. The U19 team will compete for a place in the U19 World Cup at the end of this year
