Max Brooking


Max Brooking has given 30 years of service to Special Olympics. He has served on the Special Olympics North Taranaki Committee since its inception in 1986, in the roles of Secretary, Coordinator and is now Chairperson of the Club.

Max has coached basketball and athletics for the last 20 years and was extremely proud to get his basketball team into the local winter league. The team is one of the few teams in New Zealand to achieve this.

He has managed the Special Olympics North Taranaki team to the National Summer Games every time since 1990. If Max was not at the helm of the North Taranaki Club at a major event, it would be most unusual! He is always keen to see his athletes do their very best. Max has also attended three World Summer Games, most recently as Head of Delegation for the Los Angeles Games in 2015. 

He is a passionate kind and caring volunteer who wears his heart firmly on his sleeve and epitomises what Special Olympics is all about. He believes in rules and he believes in fair play but most importantly he supports the true essence of sportsmanship.
