A series of in-store book signing events will be held at Whitcoulls and Borders stores across the country starting in Auckland this Saturday 27th November and working their way down the country. New Zealand netball’s current Ferns and great Fern legends from yesteryear, will be greeting their fans and signing copies of the book for holiday gifts.

The book also features in depth articles on Kiwi netball’s 26 all-time top players that have been written by some of New Zealand’s top sportswriters and the foreword has been written by our very own Dame of netball, Dame Lois Muir.

“This book is a brilliant tribute to our history and I would like to express my thanks to the many talented women who have shared their stories. To all followers of the game and sports enthusiasts in New Zealand and beyond I hope you enjoy an insight to some of the characters who have contributed so much to our rich Netball tradition,” says Dame Lois Muir
