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.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
