Paris Lokotui

Goal Defence, Wing Defence


Lokotui, 18, in her first year at university, has already represented New Zealand in three different sports – netball (NZ Secondary Schools), basketball (Junior Tall Ferns) and water polo (New Zealand U16).

Lokotui, who has been a Pulse training partner, was last year among the second wave of 12 young sportswomen named as part of the Tania Dalton Foundation which supports talented young sportswomen. The programme provides girls with opportunities to connect with like-minded athletes and experienced mentors.

After starting out as an in-circle defender, Lokotui has been effectively re-modelled into primarily a wing defence/centre while adding cover at goal defence.
