The Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse are a New Zealand netball team based in Wellington that compete's in the ANZ Premiership. The Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse have been in five of the six ANZ Premiership finals (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022)
In 2019 the once elusive Premiership was won in Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua with the Pulse beating the Northern Stars 52 to 48. In 2020 due to the impact of Covid19 the Pulse travelled to Invercargill and played the Mainland Tactix, defending our title and winning back to back titles 43 to 31.
2022 saw the grand final being played at TSB Arena Wellington for the first time, with the Pulse beating the Northern Stars 56-37.
We are a people first organisation – we recognise and value our partnerships. Without them we can’t achieve what we do on the court – our hashtag #MadeOfMany is born on that philosophy. Many people make up the Pulse.
