From the CEO ... Lynette Brady
Well, the end of the season is nearly upon us, with the College Premier finals this Saturday and the Club finals next week. It dosn’t seem that long ago that we were about to start the season.
During the July school holidays our age groups representative teams travelled away to their respective tournaments, starting with the Under 15’s and Year 9 team in New Plymouth. The Under 15/1 team, coached by Sam Kooiman and managed by Mikayla Kooiman, finished up runner up behind Auckland in a closely contested final, well done to the team this was an outstanding result. Congratulations to Olyvia Baggett and Charli Foster who were named in the tournament team. The U15/2 team retained their B Grade position for 2019, and in their first year at the tournament our Year 9 team, under the leadership of Isy Stevenson and Katrina Chatfield won the D Grade winning promotion to C Grade for next year.
Our Under 19 team, led by Julie Kelman-Poto and Jennette Iversen finished in a very credible 3rd place, dropping only one game, at the NZ Under 19 Age Group Championships in Mt Maunganui. Daisy Hurley, Asher Mason and Monique Rousseau were all named in the tournament team, well done to you all and we look forward to following your progress. The Under 17 teams both performed well in Palmerston North finishing 15th & 26th respectively. I would also like to acknowledge the umpires that make it possible for our teams to compete at these tournaments and congratulate them individually for their appointments to the tournaments – Ginny Peek & Kalesi Tabete (Under 17’s), Becky George, Sam George and Nicole Jackson (Under 15’s).

While the competition season is coming to an end there is still lots of activity happening here at the netball centre, with a number of tournaments, development opportunities and spring leagues coming up, as well as our October School holiday programmes for players and umpires.
2019 is already looking to be a busy year. We would like to thank the Kaipatiki Local Board for their investment into Glenfield College to upgrade their netball courts, which will allow us to run a primary competition on a Saturday morning at the College, making netball more accessible to the local community.
Good luck to our College and Intermediate teams preparing for and heading off to UNISS and AIMS in September. I look forward to seeing you all around the courts over these last few weeks and trust that you have all enjoyed your year.

Reminder that players are not able to play with earrings on ... NO taped earrings. Players will be asked to leave the court. This is not a new rule and we are seeing this more as students have had ears pierced during the school holidays. This is for the player concerned safety, as well as the other players on court.

- Must release the ball within 3 seconds
- After releasing the ball, may not replay the ball until it has been touched by another player or it rebounds from the goal post. (Note: replay is considered when the player has possession of the ball!. Possession is not catching by their fingertips)

Salvation Army Showcase
This is to be hosted by the Barfoot & Thompson Netball Centre from 24th November to 7th December. Netball North Harbour will have a tree and we need your help decorating it!
Click here to download the template of a netball dress or netball, print it, decorate it and bring it back to us to put on the tree.
Netball North Harbour App
With the start of the season, the App is the perfect place to find your draws and results! If you haven't aready, download the App from your phone store (search Netball North Harbour). It's a great tool for draws, up and coming events and programmes.
Facility & Events
- 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 or say No Parking!
- Please note, There is no parking in front of the pedestrian crossing on Northcote Rd. This is now a No Parking area due to the narrowness of those carparks as well as for the safety of pedestrians crossing the road.
- Please keep your speed down and keep an eye out for people (especially children) running in and out around cars.
- Please respect and adhere to the instructions given by the Maori Wardens. They are there for the safety of all and have the full backing of Netball North Harbour and the NZ Police.
- Please don't leave valuables in your car as we have had break-ins in the carpark in the past.
The lost property box that is located in our Cafe is filled to the top with lots of items that need to find a home. Have a look through if you have lost something over the past few weeks, you'll be surprised what you find in there!
Don't forget our rules here at NNH, they are there for a reason! We have just spent thousands of dollars over summer fixing 3 courts due to water damage which is caused by sharp objects such as umbrella points digging into the rubberised surface.
**No dogs (except Guide Dogs) ** No scooters or bikes **
**No smoking or vapors anywhere on the premises (including the carpark)**
**No stilletos ** No chewing gum! (this sticks to the courts and can't be removed)
