Help to fol­low your net­ball dreams

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

Last year, the Nga¯ Mokop­una o Ma¯hanga net­ball team from Te Puke got brand new uni­forms af­ter ask­ing ANZ for as­sis­tance.

The so­cial team of mums, daugh­ters, nieces, aun­ties and friends had uni­forms that were in des­per­ate need of an up­grade. Af­ter ap­ply­ing to the ANZ Dream De­liv­ery pro­gramme, they re­ceived a new set of uni­forms.

To mark the new ANZ Premier­ship sea­son, the bank is again ask­ing net­ball teams — how can we help?

ANZ knows the time, the ef­fort and de­ter­mi­na­tion that’s re­quired to get to the top is im­mense, but no one achieves on their own. It’s the sup­port that can make the dif­fer­ence in achiev­ing goals.

The sup­port is not lim­ited to kit — it could be any­thing big, small or off-the-wall. In the past ANZ sup­port has spanned high per­for­mance net­ball gear, ex­pert coach­ing, court and club makeovers, to dream ex­pe­ri­ences.

In 2017 one young player was granted the op­por­tu­nity to be the mini-man­ager of an ANZ Premier­ship team for a day as a re­minder to con­tinue work­ing hard and not give up on net­ball dreams.

And a long-serv­ing coach was sur­prised by stars of ANZ Premier­ship and awarded a trip to watch the Sil­ver Ferns play in Aus­tralia, as a thank you for her com­mit­ment and in­spi­ra­tion she has pro­vided to her teams over the years.

Over the past five years ANZ has sup­ported teams, clubs, schools and play­ers all over New Zealand to the value of nearly $500,000.

“We are proud to sup­port net­ball at ev­ery level, from grass­roots right up to the elite ANZ Premier­ship and Sil­ver Ferns,” says ANZ head of spon­sor­ship, Sue McGregor.

“We know some­times all you need is just that lit­tle bit of ex­tra help to achieve your goals, so we are com­mit­ted to help­ing as many net­ball fans as we can.”

Bay of Plenty net­ball clubs, teams, play­ers and fans can tell ANZ what they need to help achieve their net­ball goals at anz­court­side.co.nz
