Bumper Weekend of Netball in Hawke’s Bay

Haier Pulse Brings a Bumper Weekend of Netball to Hawke’s Bay


Media Release
17 March 2014


Hawke’s Bay netball players and fans are set for a bumper weekend with the Haier Pulse, fresh from their hard-fought 53-47 victory over the Northern Mystics on Sunday. The programme begins on Saturday 22 March with a number of specialist clinics for developing players, coaches and managers and ends on Sunday with a 2014 ANZ Championship home game.

Haier Pulse players arrive in the region on Friday ahead of their Round 4 match against the Tactix. Currently lying in fourth place on the ANZ ladder, the team will be preparing for the game by assisting with a variety of netball activities in Hastings and Napier.

Head Coach Robyn Broughton will lead a Junior Netball Fun Day at the Regional Sports Park, Hastings. This session utilises the exciting new Junior Netball format and will involve young netballers from Years 1 and 2. Haier Pulse squad members, including Silver Ferns Katrina Grant, Joline Henry and Millie Lees, will be on hand to help with the games and sign autographs.

There is also an opportunity for aspiring team managers to hear from Haier Pulse team manager Jo Holmes, who will be hosting an informal workshop covering tips on how to manage school and representative teams at tournaments. She will also answer questions around things like devising an itinerary, keeping the players watered and fed and ensuring teams have all the correct gear.

Simultaneously, at Napier’s William Colenso College, Irene van Dyk and Donna Wilkins will be holding a shooting workshop for coaches involving junior shooters who have been nominated by their schools. Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit and Gemma Hazeldine will also be talking to a talent-identified player group of U15 and U17 players about their own netball experiences from school teams right through to representing New Zealand.

Former New Zealand representative Sandra Edge and New Zealand Secondary Schools Coach and Haier Pulse Assistant Coach Marianne Delaney will also lead a workshop for secondary school and representative coaches.

Hawke’s Bay Netball General Manager, Tina Arlidge, is delighted to have such a high-calibre line-up working alongside the region’s players, coaches and managers. “This is a fantastic opportunity for netballers young and old to learn from the very best in our sport. Having so many Silver Ferns here at the same time is a real privilege and we are extremely grateful for their offer of spending time teaching our young players. We are all looking forward to the weekend and I’m sure the whole of Hawke’s Bay will be cheering on the Haier Pulse on Sunday.”

The Haier Pulse face the Tactix on Sunday 23 March at Pettigrew.Green Arena, Napier. Centre pass is 7.20pm.

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>>
