This week’s reader’s photo was sent in by Gra­ham Slater. The New Zealand Teach­ers’ Games 2018 was re­cently held in Tau­ranga and Mount Maun­ganui for the sec­ond year. In these games, more than 600 teach­ers and sup­port staff from schools across New Zealand com­pete in 18 dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines. In the photo (from left) are Talita Clap­per­ton (John Paul Col­lege), Vance Shoe­bridge (Ka­haroa School), Ann Brim­mer (Ro­torua Boys’ High School) and Gra­ham Slater (Western Heights High School). To­gether, they won a to­tal of 10 medals in Women’s Sin­gles and Dou­bles, Men’s Sin­gles and Dou­bles and Mixed Dou­bles, in­clud­ing gold in the men’s and mixed team com­pe­ti­tions. All four play­ers are mem­bers of the Hock­ing Fri­day Bad­minton Club, which has been run­ning in Ro­torua for more than 30 years.
