For the first time since the inception of the ANZ Championship, the Taranaki region will experience the excitement of top-flight netball when the Haier Pulse take on 2012 winners, Waikato/Bay of Plenty Magic, in a pre-season game at the 1900 capacity TSB Stadium.

This pre-season training game will headline at 4pm on Saturday 23 February during an exciting weekend of netball activity. Not only will local fans get an amazing opportunity see the players in action, but young netballers will also get the chance to train with Haier Pulse players and learn new skills from the best.

TSB Stadium Manager, Adrienne Kensington was delighted to welcome two top teams to the New Plymouth venue. “The TSB Stadium is excited to support this fantastic opportunity for our local community to witness two great teams compete and see some of New Zealand’s top netball players up close.”

Local Year 7 and 8 netballers will play a North v South curtain-raiser on Saturday and following the pre-season training game there will be an opportunity for fans to meet the Haier Pulse and Magic players to get their autographs.

Winners of the “Train with the Haier Pulse Players” competition will take part in one of two netball clinics on the Sunday. Including the Haier Pulse players, each clinic will cover skills and drills on footwork, space and balance. The sessions are also open to view by the public so everyone gets the chance to pick up a few netball tips.

Netball Taranaki General Manager, Jacqui Jones, is delighted that Taranaki is to host the pre-season event. “Every one of our registered players, officials and teams contributes through their fees to the development and delivery of netball region and nation-wide,” explained Jones. “We’re delighted that a game at this level is being played in Taranaki and that there is such a strong commitment to community engagement while the team is here.”
