Haier Pulse to Begin 2015 With Toughest Trip of All

Haier Pulse to Begin 2015 With Toughest Trip of All

Media Release
2 September 2014

The Haier Pulse will once again face the reigning champions in the first round of the ANZ Championship, with a trip to Melbourne to take on the Vixens on 1 March. The only other trip across the ditch in the regular season comes in the final round, when the team will travel to Adelaide to play the 2013 champions the Thunderbirds.

With seven home games in 2015, three venues will play host to the Haier Pulse, with Wellington’s TSB Arena set to stage four consecutive fixtures in late March and April. Two games are scheduled for Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua, while the Steel will visit Arena Manawatu for the final home game on 17 May.

Fittingly, the team will face Australian opponents during ANZAC weekend when they play the NSW Swifts at the TSB Arena, as part of Wellington’s WW1 100 years commemorations.

Haier Pulse Head Coach Robyn Broughton is pleased with draw, but doesn’t underestimate the challenge of opening the new season against the 2014 winners on their home court. “The first game against the Vixens is a hard one and starting and finishing with a game away in Australia is a challenge,” she explained.

“It’s good we have a bye in the middle and a game in between the two games against the Steel, of course, it’s also very dependent on the people who come along to our games and the venue.

“The support at our home games is always outstanding and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing all our supporters at the 2015 ANZ Championship games next season,” added Robyn.

There is always a tremendous demand for tickets to Haier Pulse home games, and Season Tickets go on sale in September, ensuring entry for supporters to the games at the TSB and Te Rauparaha arenas.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

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.
