Future Stars Raise the Curtain For Haier Pulse

With less than a week to go before the start of the 2013 ANZ Championship, the Haier Pulse is delighted to announce a series of exciting curtain raisers for its home games, highlighting the growth and development of college netball in the region.

Chris Hooper, CEO Netball Central, is looking forward to seeing local college netball teams raise their profile through the televised games on Sky TV. “This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the individual players and teams, but also for the whole Central Netball community, as it provides the chance for everyone to see the exceptional talent that we have in our region. It also gives our young players something to aspire to as they progress in their netball careers at school.”

Now in its third year, the competition starts on 6 April and boasts 18 teams vying for that elusive top spot in a knock-out format, which will see a new chapter in some of New Zealand's great secondary school rivalries.

The 18 teams will be grouped into three zones, with the winner from each (and the second placed Upper North Island team) coming together for the two Semi-Finals and leading into the Grand Final.

The Grand Final will be broadcast on Monday 17 June before the Haier Pulse take on the Easiyo Canterbury Tactix at Te Rauparaha Arena.

In all, 12 games will be televised on SKY Sport, who will also be producing a highlights package.

The Haier Pulse travel to Adelaide to play the Thunderbirds this Sunday 24 March in their opening game of the 2013 ANZ Championship.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
