A Bit About Who We Are

Tennis has been part of the Cook Islands community for over 100 years. It is a sport that has historically been represented well across almost all of the 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands. (well at least the ones that are inhabited)

Tennis Cook Islands' goal is to rebuild a strong representation of tennis in the Cook Islands and provide a way for our youth to utilise their sporting achievements to access academic excellence. 

Current Committee


Davina Hosking-Ashford

Member, supporter, and representative of TCI since the age of 9 (we don't need to count how many years ago that is). "I hope that Tennis will once again flourish in all Cook Islands communities and that juniors will be able to access higher education through sporting achievement".

Rev. Travel Makara


Jackie Rongo

Tennis has been part of my life since a young age. From skills building lessons, playing interscholastic tennis at high school in Guam, recreational play in University, and beyond. As a Mother, Aunty and colleague of tennis players in the Cook Islands I hope my efforts on this committee will help the positive development of our code for our country.
