Cedric Cudby was a Manager of New Zealand Men’s teams between 1965 and 1971. Cedric was a member of the New Zealand Men’s Basketball Association and the New Zealand Basketball Federation for 18 years (1963- 1980), where he was Vice-President from 1972-1980. He was recognised by FIBA who awarded him with a Movers and Shapers Award for his contribution to the sport here and in the Oceania region.

Cudby later represented New Zealand on FIBA and was instrumental in ensuring that Oceania became an official FIBA Zone, which in turn meant New Zealand had regular international games, particularly with Australia. Cudby played a significant role in the initiation and development of Walter Nash Stadium in Lower Hutt, and is also a life member of the Hutt Valley Basketball Association and Basketball New Zealand.
