FAST5 Day Passes Now On Sale


Fans of the FAST5 Netball World Series are being encouraged to purchase their tickets to November’s event early to avoid missing out.

The popularity of the two-day event has grown year upon year as Netball fans have embraced the shortened FAST5 version of the traditional seven aside game.

Day passes for the event at Auckland’s Vector Arena are now on sale for those fans wanting to attend either Saturday 8th November or finals day on Sunday 9th November.

Tournament Passes for the whole weekend have been eagerly snapped up after going on sale last month, exceeding organisers’ expectations and prompting a notice for those intending to purchase tickets, to get in quick.

As an added bonus for Netball fans, a FAST5 Cocktail Party on the Friday evening before the event is open for the public to purchase tickets. Select players from all six FAST5 teams will be in attendance at the Heritage Hotel from 6pm-8pm to mix and mingle with the $75 ticket price covering the two hour event, drinks and canapés.

This hugely popular annual sporting event showcases the top six Netballing nations in the world playing the dynamic shortened form of the game dubbed FAST5, which incorporates five players per team, unique shooting zones and rolling subs.

For more details about pricing and to purchase Tournament Passes, Day Passes and the FAST5 Cocktail Party, information is available through Ticketmaster.

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.
