The Wintec Waikato Bay of Plenty Under 23 teams stepped out on court in Tauranga over the weekend to compete for valuable championship points leading into the main part of the New Zealand Age Group Championships that take place in Wellington July 15-18.

This is the first round robin competition involving the Waikato Bay of Plenty and Netball Northern Zone teams with games between Mainland, South and Central taking place on 6 July to 7 July in Timaru

ACC and the School of Physical Education, University of Otago, currently require volunteers to complete a short survey on knowledge, attitudes and behaviours (KAB) towards injury prevention.

Resurgent late season form has Kia Magic in buoyant mode ahead of their ANZ Championship netball rematch with Southern Steel in Rotorua on Sunday.
A gutsy three-goal extra time away win over Queensland Firebirds has rejuvenated the defending champions campaign heading towards the business end of the season.

Kia Magic head coach Noeline Taurua is set to end her long and frutiful tenure with the Waikato/Bay of Plenty netball team at the end of August.

Under Taurua's stewardship, Magic has produced an enviable record of being the only team to make the semi-finals every year during the semi-professional era of the ANZ Championship, the only team to make three grand finals and New Zealand's only team to win the competition.
