Dream for net­ball club

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - What’s On - SAM KILMISTER

Play­ers from the Feild­ing Net­ball Club are roam­ing the courts with a fresh, new look.

The club re­ceived an ANZ Net­ball Dream De­liv­ery, in­clud­ing new tops, skirts, bibs, gear bags and balls.

The club had re­cently grown to four teams and strug­gled to pro­vide uni­forms for each player.

Player Jes­sica Brett said the de­liv­ery gave the club a re­newed out­look to­wards the back end of the sea­son.

‘‘Our club has pro­duced sev­eral na­tional and in­ter­na­tional stars and we’ve had Sil­ver Fern coaches play and coach our play­ers.

‘‘Our dream is to lift the game of our younger teams and make sure our fu­ture gen­er­a­tion of net­ball stars are kit­ted out how they de­serve.’’

The town’s net­ball club is the sec­ond Feild­ing sports out­fit to re­ceive the dream pack­age this year after the premier two men’s team were also res­cued with new kit in Jan­uary.

ANZ head of spon­sor­ship Sue Mc­Gre­gor said the ini­tia­tive helped sports­peo­ple across New Zealand to take their sport to the next level.

‘‘We’re glad to be able to help a club with such a strong 50-year sport­ing his­tory. Pro­vid­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of Feild­ing net­ball play­ers with new uni­forms will en­sure they feel their best - we might see them at the ANZ Pre­mier­ship.’’
