In less than two weeks, the Waiuku Netball Centre will be celebrating its Diamond Jubilee.
It’s been 60 years since the original centre was officially opened in 1957, and as part of the Jubilee celebrations, a Carnival Day will be held at the centre.
On Saturday 24 June, teams, coaches and supporters are invited to come along and enjoy a fun day at the courts.
The playing format for the day is a Knockout Tournament, and will include giveaways, dress-ups, sausage sizzle, goodie bags and more.
An exhibition game starring an ‘old girls’ team will feature netball from yesteryear and will see players wearing pleated tunics, white collared shirts and black stockings.
Guest umpires will no doubt provide some light entertainment for everyone.
Organisers are encouraging attendees to wear their club colours and head along to the courts to enjoy the celebrations.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
