Wellingtonians to Show their Support for Haier Pulse

Media Release

1 March 2013

Wellingtonians to Show their Support by Signing Personal Messages on a Haier Pulse Suzuki Swift

With less than a month to go before the start of what promises to be an exciting and highly-charged 2013 ANZ Netball Championship, the Haier Pulse will be out and about all next week to celebrate the launch of the new season.

The team has already received a major boost, with the world’s No.1 brand of major appliances, Haier Appliances, extending its highly-successful partnership into a fourth year. “Haier is thrilled to support the team, and we are excited to see what they will bring to the championship this season,” said Troy Scragg, General Manager Haier New Zealand.

Brendan Foot Supersite and Suzuki have also teamed up with the players. As the official vehicle suppliers, they are helping to get the Haier Pulse around in five brand new Suzukis, one of which is a bright yellow Suzuki Swift. The car will be parked in various key locations around the capital during the week and the girls are asking the Wellington public to show their support and sign the bodywork with their personal messages of support.

Wellington’s Deputy Mayor, Ian McKinnon and players from other Wellington sporting codes will be joining the team on Tuesday morning at the Wellington Railway Station to write their own messages for the team.

There will also be an opportunity for the public to meet the 2013 squad (and grab those all-important autographs) at the home of the Haier Pulse, Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua, on Friday between 4-5pm.

The Suzuki Swift can be signed in the following locations next week:

Tuesday, 5 March

8.15am-9am, Wellington Railway Station

Wednesday, 6 March

12.30pm-1.30pm, Midland Park (off Waring Taylor Street, Central Wellington)

Thursday, 7 March

12.30pm-1.30pm, Waterfront under the Sails (Queens Wharf, Central Wellington)

Friday, 8 March

12.30-1.30pm, Exodus Carpark (Tory Street, Central Wellington)

4pm-5pm, Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua

The Haier Pulse play the Thunderbirds in Adelaide on 24 March in their opening game of the 2013 ANZ Championship.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
