Courts getting upgrade for summer

AMI Netball North Harbour is very pleased to announce that Auckland City has granted the AMI Netball Centre $170K to upgrade many of the courts this upcoming summer. We are delighted with the grant which will see a major refurbishment to courts currently in desperate need of repair. This will leave us with three courts still to be rubberised and a further $160K to find, but will see NNH in great condition for the
2013 winter season.

We are also thrilled to announce and welcome Barfoot and Thompson as an official sponsor of NNH. Barfoot and Thompson are well known throughout NZ for their support of sport and other not for profit and charitable initiatives. Peter Thompson (Barfoot & Thompson Managing Director) says “We are delighted to sponsor netball at this level where young players are starting out and being shaped for the future. This sponsorship is just another way we can help to support and encourage netball players, encouraging them to continue to play the sport and better their skills”.
We are very pleased that many of our local businesses recognise the importance of playing sport and their support helps us keep netball accessible, enjoyable and affordable for families. AMI Netball North Harbour has a wide-ranging sponsorship architecture that reflects the various benefits to Sponsors, Advertisers and Community Partners. If you would like to find out more about advertising and promotion opportunities, or sponsorship at AMI Netball North Harbour, please contact me on 481 0945.
The Netball Season has hummed along particularly well this year. The Onewa Arena has made such a huge impact to the AMI centre bringing back all of our premier players (who have had to play at the North Shore events centre for the past eight years). The LG Mystics have trained three days a week and the Silver Ferns have also been regular users. North Harbour Volleyball also calls the Arena home during their summer competition.
If you want some action on a Tuesday evening come down to the Onewa Arena and enjoy watching our Premier players battle it out with fast paced and highly skilled levels of play. The canteen is open with nourishing evening meal options and an assortment of beverage to suit your taste.
With a few more weeks of play left before the end of season the competitions at every level become more urgent as final placing’s become ever more important.

If you are interested in supporting Netball, we would love to have you – please phone the Volunteer Coordinator Teri Doody on 4810941 or by emailing - Thank you to all of our volunteers!
