Haier Pulse star Irene van Dyk has won more test caps and awards than any other netballer and now she has yet another trophy to squeeze into her bulging cabinet, after being named the Super Colour Personality of the Year at the 2014 Dominion Post Wellington Sportsperson of the Year Awards.

The U23 Zone Tournament at Wellington’s ASB Sports Centre wrapped up on Sunday, with Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty taking out the title after an unbeaten weekend and coaches and organisers declaring the event an outstanding success.

Day one of the U23 Zone tournament at Wellington’s ASB Sports Centre saw Netball WBOP come from behind to beat the hosts Netball Central, while Netball Northern dominated Netball Mainland in the other first round game.

Wellington’s ASB Sports Centre will be the venue for an U23 Zone tournament this weekend, which will double as a trial of potential rule changes to the international game. Four of New Zealand’s five zones, Netball Central, Netball Mainland, Netball Northern and Netball WBOP, will be competing in a tournament designed as preparation for the U23 New Zealand Age Group Championships, being held in Dunedin from 7-10 July.

Head Coach Yvette McCausland-Durie has named the Netball Central Zone U23 squad which will compete in the U23 New Zealand Age Group Championships, being held in Dunedin from 7-10 July.

Netball New Zealand is delighted to announce the appointment of Allison Ferguson as the newest appointed member of the Netball New Zealand Board. 

 Netball New Zealand is pleased to announce the 2014 New Zealand Secondary Schools (NZSS) squad of 16, from which a team of 12 plus four non-travelling reserves will be named next month.

Netball Central Zone and Haier Pulse Chairman Ian Collier is passing on the baton to board member Sue Gordon, but will remain on the board until the beginning of June.
