The TBNZ Tournament Calendar is made up of the six TBNZ-run events (Nationals and Team Champs for Youth, Open and Seniors) and centre-run events. The intention is to rank centre-run events and TBNZ will work with the centres so their tournaments align with the Ranking Policy.

When the information is received from the centre the Division, Grade, Rank and Certification Number are updated.  We recommend that you bookmark this page so you get the latest information about tournaments.
