Tickets Now on Sale for Haier Pulse’s Regional Game

Haier Pulse shooter Donna Wilkins won't be expecting too many surprises after her switch this season from Southern Steel. Having joined friend and mentor Robyn Broughton and former teammates Liana Leota, Katrina Grant and Te Huinga Reo Selby Rickit, she will be in good company.

Robyn is looking forward to seeing her players in action once again. “The experience and professional hard-nosed approach to winning from both Donna and Liana will be welcomed as the Haier Pulse strives to improve its 2012 placing and cement a spot in the top four.”

Tickets go on sale today for the highly-anticipated clash between the Haier Pulse and the Southern Steel on Sunday 14 April, at Arena Manawatu, Palmerston North (7.20pm).

The game will also give fans an opportunity to see mid-courter and local girl Liana on court, following her return to the city after a year in the UK, where her husband Johnny is playing rugby for Sale Sharks.

Netball Central and Haier Pulse Chief Executive Officer, Chris Hooper, is delighted to be able to bring the game to Palmerston North. “This is our only regional game during the 2013 ANZ Championship and we are always made to feel very welcome. The region has tremendous enthusiasm for netball with many young people participating in the game, so this is a great opportunity to see top players in action.”

Arena Manawatu Marketing Manager, Haylee Mutch, agrees: “Arena Manawatu is extremely excited to be the host of the only away regional game. The last time Haier Pulse was in Palmerston North it was a near sell-out crowd. We are expecting nothing less this year. The support and passion for netball in the community is huge, with the netball season well underway this will make a very exciting evening out for all the netball clubs, players and their families.”

Netball fans also get a chance to see high quality college netball when Tu Toa meet New Plymouth Girls High in the curtain raiser at 5.45pm. Gates open 5pm.

Tickets are on sale today priced at $25 for adults and $10 for children (15 years and younger), or $60 for family (2 adults, 2 children) and are available from Ticketdirect at Please note seats are allocated and tickets are not part of the Haier Pulse season member package.
