FAST5 Netball World Series Tickets on sale and be in to WIN

24th May 2013: FAST5 Netball World Series tickets go on sale May 29th and those who purchase by the end of June will go in the draw to win an upgrade to a corporate hospitality box*. FAST5 is back and will once again be held at Auckland’s Vector Arena from the 8th - 10th November.

FAST5 fans will get to experience 20 games over three days of fast-paced action and entertainment.

Netball New Zealand Chief Executive Raelene Castle believes that after being exposed to the new format of FAST5 in 2012, the game is only gaining in popularity.

“The feedback we had last year was fantastic and positive and we are thrilled to have the continued support of major sponsors; ATEED (Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development) and The Business, Innovation and Employment Ministry." Castle said.

“The most exciting part about it is how many Netball communities got on board and are now playing FAST5 at a social level, introducing new people to the game.”

The FAST5 Ferns were the inaugural champions in 2012 and will be looking to win back to back titles against the Australian Fast5 Diamonds, England Fives, Jamaican Sunshine girls, SPAR Proteas and Malawi Queens.

The name FAST5 reflects the innovative netball rule changes with on-court team numbers reduced from seven players to five and three goal point scoring zones.

Ticket will be available for purchase via Ticketmaster from Wednesday 29 May – www.ticketmaster.co.nz

* - please see www.fast5.co.nz for full Terms and Conditions.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
