Mii Maui has been announced as the new president of Netball Cook Islands, taking over in one of the most important years for the sporting code in recent memory.

A former player and head coach for the Cook Islands, Maui comes in with a wealth of experience relating to the domestic game. She played at national and international level for more than 10 years, and coached the Black Pearls squad from 2009 to 2012.

Maui also has experience at the administrative level, as she was president of the Rarotonga Netball Centre from 2015 to 2017, before taking over her current role.

“In her downtime, Mii is involved with her village community in sports, church and uniform organisations and holds executive positions in these organisations,” her LinkedIn page reads.

Outside of netball, Maui has more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry specialising in the Pacific region, and currently works for ANZ Bank in their markets division, participating in regular global markets committees.

For the last nine years, she has been responsible for all foreign exchange-related transactions, including hedging instruments, interest-rate management, markets-related risk management, and ANZ Cook Islands balance sheet and liquidity management activities.

Right now is one of the more prosperous times for Cook Islands netball, as it was announced at the beginning of the month that they are now ranked 17th in the world, on the back of their successful Nations Cup win in Singapore.

The ranking comes ahead of the Netball World Cup qualifiers in Auckland, starting April 17.

Over the four-day event, the Black Pearls will face Fiji (ranked 12), Samoa (15), Papua New Guinea and Tonga.
