Poker Society

Welcome to the UOA Poker Club, New Zealand's biggest and best University Poker Club.

Starting in 2016, we began hosting tournaments and cash games every week for anyone over the age of 18 that wanted to play, practice and gain experience in one of the most challenging and strategic games in the world - poker! We provide a safe and friendly environment for anybody to enjoy the great game. Our games are every Tuesday from 6-11pm on campus.

After hosting games for over two years - and making a few mistakes along the way - it’s got to the point now where the games more or less run themselves. This got our team thinking of ways in which we could do more. We’re proud to announce that starting from the begining of 2018, our club will be supporting a great cause - The Child Cancer Foundation.

The Child Cancer Foundation provides strength and comfort to families, parents and children impacted by child cancer and is a cause we are proud to get behind and one we’re sure all our members and UOA Students will be too.

This year we will be hosting the first of many ‘Ace of Hearts’ tournaments, a tournament we look forward to hosting once a semester. We aim to donate 100% of the buy-ins for the event to the foundation by subsidising the cash prize with amazing products & services donated by our sponsors and friends from across New Zealand.

We’re extremely excited for the changes to come and look forward to all our members continued support and for all the work we can do alongside such a great cause!


Find us in room 303-G16 every Tuesday from 6-11 pm.
