Beko Netball League game in Christchurch cancelled


Due to the circumstances of the serious situation in Christchurch today Netball New Zealand has cancelled the Beko Netball League match between Hellers Mainland and the Northern Comets which was due to be played tomorrow, 1pm Saturday 16th March at the Lincoln Events Centre, Christchurch.

Paramount in this decision is the safety and well-being of all participants. The cancelled game means the match is declared a draw and each team will receive two points as per the competition rules.

Netball New Zealand wishes to express our heartfelt thoughts to all those who are effected by today’s events in Christchurch.
