How fast the season has flown by! Trust you are enjoying this little mini break from training and playing. There are just 4 games in regular competition left, and good performances could see your team in the semi-finals on August 21 and through to finals on August 28. Any bad weather that causes a cancellation will push the dates out one week. We are packing an awful lot of events into the next few weeks and we are looking to everyone to support as many events as possible. You are part of the Club and all funds raised support netball.
Fundraising is ongoing and our next events are

Centenary Celebrations - August 3 - 7
Of course we cannot forget that Technical Netball is celebrating 100 years, after being established in 1921. There is a passionate and hard working committee determined to make this an occasion to remember. Reach out to old friends and arrange to get together, there is still time to put you name forward. Head to the website www.technicalnetball.co.nz for more information and to register to attend any events. There is a $10 registration to help with some costs, but there are no additional costs to attend Tuesday night games and the Club Day on Saturday afternoon/evening. There is a $30 cost for Friday night and $20 for Saturday night pub crawl (numbers are limited).
End of Season Prize Giving plans
We have pencilled in Tuesday 31 August for our end of season prize giving event, so pop the date in your diary. More details to come. We will shortly be asking Coaches for their nominations for awards and trophies.
The Bealey have generously come on board as a sponsor of Technical this year, which has helped us in purchasing the new uniforms and reducing your subs. Part of our agreement is to have teams going there on Saturday afternoons for a post-game catch up over some food and drink. All teams have now been rostered to attend over the rest of the season and we strongly encourage as many of the team, family and friends to attend. The Coach has been given the roster and should be in touch to confirm your Saturday. Also, make excellent use of the loyalty card provided and see how many places you can use it at. We need to show the Bealey that we are worth sponsoring and can continue the relationship in 2022.
There are still a number of players who have not paid their subscriptions, and your Coach has a list. We need you to pay now, as we have to pay fees to ChCh Netball. You can still arrange to make payment by instalments.by contacting us on email@example.com.
There is a wealth of information to be found on our website and Facebook page, also that of Christchurch Netball, so please check them out and make yourself familiar with them. Make use of Facebook to tell us a brief run down on how your team's game went each week - keep it brief and positive.
