Get involved in Netball

I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday over the Christmas break. Over the New Year, many of us would have made New Year’s resolutions that generally involve our health, wellbeing, or to spend more time doing activities we love or are good at etc. How many of us think about donating some of our time to volunteering??? Generally speaking doing an act of goodwill or volunteering to help others typically ticks all of the boxes mentioned above. It certainly makes you feel good knowing you are helping others and giving back to the community! As an employer I am always interested in the volunteering component of a CV!
Sport cannot be played or run without volunteers and there is a role or project (large or small) that will suit all types of skills. If you have ever played netball, or have had a child that did then please give us a call as we always have a task that we’d appreciate some assistance with.. If you are more skilled then we will shortly be advertising more coaching positions for our younger age groups. Visit our website for more information
Our complex and facilities hireage opportunities at the AMI Netball Centre are probably the best deals in town. We have a variety of spaces available that will suit groups from 10-400 people. We can cater for corporate events, team building, prizegivings and general meetings. We also hold many weddings, birthday bashes, children’s events, and last year hosted two boxing bouts in our fantastic Onewa Arena. We can tailor an event to suit your needs and your budget. Please contact Debbie Kirton , Operations and Complex Manager, on 481 0947 if you would like to make enquiries regarding venue hireage.
Planning and implementation of our 2013 Recipe Book “Game On” is well under way. Many recipies – Breakfasts and Brunches, Lunches, Main Courses and Special Occasions have been sent in. It is interesting to note that nearly 40% of the recipes we have received so far are for Desserts, Baking or Sweets! The competition winner will have dinner cooked by a top chef in your home (using the ingredients from your pantry or fridge) - winner will be announced soon. Please either visit our website - for details or contact Annie Greenheld at
We would like to thank Benefitz who are sponsoring the printing of the Recipe Book. Their generosity will have a major influence on the costs involved with this project. As this is a fundraiser, we are hoping to keep costs down and save money wherever we can! If you would like to advertise in the Recipe Book we have a variety of ad sizes and prices that will suit all budgets. Please contact Annie on the above email address if you would like to discuss advertising your business.
