Netball New Zealand to hold a review

Media Statement from Netball New Zealand
MEDIA UPDATE
Tuesday 17 April
Netball New Zealand, Chief Executive Jennie Wyllie said today that they were very disappointed with the Silver Ferns placing in the Commonwealth Games.

“For a team with the proud history of the Silver Ferns, 4th is not good enough. We accept that this is the latest loss in a series of performances that were far from the best we have come to expect from one of New Zealand’s leading sports teams.

“Netball New Zealand will be holding a review, with the findings to be presented to the Netball New Zealand Board in early June.

“This review will be a comprehensive process lead by an independent expert. Athletes have a mandatory break of two weeks after which the review will commence. In order for this to be run in a robust and thorough manner this will take time.

“We will leave no stone unturned in the review. Without pre-empting the findings, we do not believe responsibility rests on any one person, or event. There are usually a range of factors in sport as to why a team isn’t performing at the expected level.

“Netball New Zealand has a long and proud history of success at the highest level of national and international sport, and we have hugely talented young players.

“We are committed to resolving any issues that are identified in the review to ensure our Silver Ferns are once again at the top of the world in Netball".

Ends.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
