Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty Chief Executive Tim Hamilton says the role of manager is important within a team environment and he’s delighted to have secured Mikkelsen for the job.
“We have no doubt that Kerri will become part of the Magic family in no time and we’re excited to have her on board with us as we prepare for the busy season ahead.”
