Net­ballers’ new track­suit

North Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - AMY BAKER

It’s all go for a net­ball team who stepped out in new track­suits thanks to spon­sor­ship.

The Rusty Rock­ets of Net­ball North Har­bour were granted fund­ing from the ANZ Net­ball Dream De­liv­ery to pur­chase some team track­suits.

They were pre­sented to the team by the man­ager of the ANZ Albany branch Yvonne Arthur at Hen­der­son Po­lice Sta­tion in June. Player Kirsty Winthrop said the team ‘‘couldn’t be hap­pier with them’’.

‘‘The girls ab­so­lutely love them. They’re very good qual­ity, they’re very warm and will be great for the mid­dle of win­ter.’’

They helped to cre­ate ‘‘team feel­ing’’ and also help play­ers to iden­tify each other be­fore games, she said.

Rusty Rock­ets were started in 2017 and had al­ready pur­chased es­sen­tials like uni­forms and bibs by the time they found out about the ANZ fund­ing, so went with a team track­suit in­stead.

The ANZ Dream De­liv­ery Pro­gramme en­cour­ages net­ball play­ers to achieve their dreams by sup­port­ing teams with things like new per­for­mance gear, train­ing and tips by some of the best in the sport.

ANZ head of spon­sor­ship Sue McGre­gor said the com­pany was proud to sup­port net­ball at all lev­els and com­mit­ted to help­ing as many of the net­ball com­mu­nity as pos­si­ble.
