Tony Hawke (born 19 August 1982) is a basketball player from Christchurch, New Zealand who represented the Canterbury Rams in New Zealand's National Basketball League (NBL). A 2006 NBL rookie, Tony only took up basketball as a 17 year old at Rangiora High School when his school team was in need of some extra height.[citation needed]

Tony finished the 2006 season with a league-high 100% shooting record, however he announced his retirement shortly after the season finished.[1]

After his retirement, Tony has travelled through Europe, Asia, and North America.
