Gilbert extends partnership with Netball’s ANZ future FERNS

Gilbert extends partnership with Netball’s ANZ future FERNS

Friday 11 September, 2015

ANZ futureFERNS, Netball New Zealand’s official junior Netball programme, continues to go from strength-to-strength with Gilbert extending their partnership through until 2018.

Gilbert joined the ANZ futureFERNS team in May this year, and moved quickly to lock-in a longer term deal after seeing the growth, success and excitement surrounding the programme.

As the official sports equipment supplier of the programme, the Gilbert range will be used by accredited ANZ futureFERNS Centres, Schools and Clubs across the country – positively impacting the experience of tens of thousands of budding, young Netballers.

Netball New Zealand (NNZ) Chief Executive Hilary Poole says she is thrilled with Gilbert’s long-term commitment to the sport.

“Gilbert has been synonymous with Netball in New Zealand for many years. This partnership sees them continue their association with all levels of the game, from grassroots through to the elite,” Poole said.

“We are pleased that Gilbert shares in our commitment for the continued growth and development of ANZ futureFERNS.

“The quality of Gilbert’s equipment is outstanding and their support is vital in ensuring the consistent quality of the programme across the country.”
