APRIL 2018


From the CEO ... Lynette Brady

The third month of the year is almost over and we are well and truly getting into netball mode.  Most clubs and schools will have finished trials and will be practising hard for the season ahead.

The season starts in mid April with the first of the Premier grading followed by the rest of the Club grading at the end of April.  With the commencement of Term 2 for schools, the school competition will start over the first couple weeks of Term 2.   We have been busy over the last month here at the Centre running the Club/College Preseason League which is almost complete and a very successful Pre Season Club/College Preseason Tournament last weekend on what turned out to be a lovely autumn day! We have also been running quite a few coaching courses for our Community Coaching Award Level 1 and 2 participants, a Managers Workshop and very successful umpiring courses for all ages. 

The Centre is also hosting alongside the Sports Injury Clinic, a very important workshop on Concussion which is to be presented by two very experienced Doctors with experience and research on this injury, Drs Mark Fulcher and Stephen Kara of Axis Sports Medicine.  We encourage all coaches, managers, parents and sports coordinators from all sporting codes to attend this very important workshop about an injury that we are gaining more knowledge about and learning how to manage athletes who have suffered the injury.  It will be held on Monday, 9th April here at the Barfoot & Thompson Netball Centre.  For more information, click here.

With the beginning of the year, comes recognition of some of our long standing members for their services to netball.  At the Netball NZ AGM in late February, Judith Downer and Ann Tod were awarded NNZ Service Awards and Yvonne Willering received a Life Membership.  At our own AGM in March, Yvonne was again recognised a service award alongside Sue Whiteman and Kirsten Dickison for their services to the Centre.  Carole Maddix, Chair of the Board was awarded a NNH Life Membership.  Yvonne was also appointed to the International Federation Coaching Advisory Panel.  Cory Nicholls received his NZ Umpire of the Year Award 2017 at the recent Taini Jamison Series.  Congratulations to all those recognised.

We wish all our members a happy Easter and we look forward to seeing more of you here at the Courts over the next month as we start getting into the season.

Facility & Events

The outdoor courts are currently being cleaned and we are undertaking urgent repairs on some courts at the moment. Courts 11, 12 and 13 are being repaired, resealed and repainted ready for the start of the season. The outdoor floodlights have also been fully serviced and are ready to go for 2018.

A reminder to clubs; if you wish to book outside courts for trials/training, please contact We also have some limited availability in the arena.

If you see something you think needs to be fixed, repaired or replaced around the arena please email the above email address know so we can get it fixed ASAP. We are currently working on the goal posts in the arena, please do not swing on them while warming up as they are fragile and will continue to break if they are not used properly.


So far this year we have welcomed some new clients to our facilities. This includes Fulton Hogan, Last Season Surf n Skate Sale, Karate NZ, The Learning Place and soon we will welcome the NHRCC and NZAMRC. If you have any ideas on different events you would like to see here at the arena please get in touch and let me know through email  We are looking at possibly having a Comedy Show mid-season


Our car park has been repainted, but is a lot narrower than previous years due to the footpath work, as a result of this several spots are now NO PARKING and are marked with yellow lines. Please keep your speed down and keep an eye out for people (especially children) running in and out around cars.

Please don’t leave any valuables in your car, there have been a couple of instances of break-ins recently so its not really worth the risk. Lock it or lose it.
