2018 Beko Netball League Squad

The Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty Zone (Netball WBOP) have announced their Beko Netball League squad for the 2018 season. Featuring players from throughout the Zone, the squad provides a mixture of youth and experience.

Head Coach Mary-Jane Araroa said naming the team has been one of the toughest selection processes and has enjoyed working with a dedicated and committed group of young talented players over the last few months.

"I'm really pleased with the mixture of rising athletes and experience that will represent our 2018 BEKO Netball League team. We are very eager to put to work this group, in producing a strong brand of netball and realising their true potential as individuals and team,” said Araroa.

“Being the stepping stone to the highest level of Netball in the Zone, it is important that we support and grow the squad – this will ensure the future of high performance Netball in the Zone and New Zealand is well looked after”.
Rohan West, Netball WBOP CEO is also excited about the squads naming.

“Congratulations to all the athletes selected in the Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty squad for the 2018 Beko Netball League. This is the pinnacle of amateur representative Netball, so the players, their families, coaches, Centres and Schools should be proud of this achievement.”

“The Beko Netball League is tough and competitive, but under the expert guidance of Head Coach Mary-Jane Araroa, the squad has been preparing very well and will be eager to represent the Zone to the best of their ability. The league kicks off with a game against Netball South at Te Aroha Events Centre on Sunday 13 May, and I urge our netball community to support the team at this game and throughout the season” said West.
