Net­ballers play on in storm

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Stormy win­ter weather for net­ball was the name of the game at the Me­mo­rial Sports­ground last Satur­day.

Heavy rain and strong winds were ex­pe­ri­enced by spec­ta­tors, play­ers, coaches and um­pires.

Ev­ery­one weath­ered the storm and went about their weekly pas­sion­ate com­mit­ment to net­ball in Toko­roa.

Many teams have en­tered to make their mark on the win­ners list and gain a good po­si­tion in the spon­sored com­pe­ti­tion which will lead into the Bill Gray Me­mo­rial Cham­pi­onships later in the sea­son.

THSOB, United Force, Ea­gles, Spar­tans Mas­ters and Forest­land Fal­cons Blue teams gained two valu­able wins.

Play­ers and um­pires showed their de­ter­mi­na­tion to cope with the weather con­di­tions.

Last week­end the Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre Un­der 15 rep­re­sen­ta­tive team played three games at the Ro­torua Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Tour­na­ment.

Although all games were lost, coach Maria Te Kanawa and man­ager Te Paea Riki-Pa­hewa said they were very pleased with the progress the team was mak­ing.

Com­bi­na­tions and con­fi­dence among the play­ers had de­vel­oped through­out each game.

The team will play in Hamil­ton Net­ball Cen­tre next week and the Toko­roa year 7 and year 8 rep­re­sen­ta­tive teams will be at Ro­torua.
