We are very pleased to have supported the central netball team, the Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse, for nine seasons.

In 2018 we were thrilled by them making the grand final of the ANZ Premiership. The team played exceptionally well this season winning the Minor Premiership. Unfortunately they couldn’t get across the line in the ANZ Premiership final but they finished the season in style with a hard-fought win over the Tactix to claim this year’s Super Club title.

Katrina Grant, Pulse captain, was named ANZ Premiership Player of the Year which is a reflection of the her consistently high performance, and we’re excited to learn that after a successful first season together Katrina and Sulu Fitzpatrick will again team up in defence in 2019.

As part of our support, we supply the players and management with a fleet of brand new Suzuki cars each season to help them get around. Keep an eye out around town for the black and yellow!

In previous years we have also run Car Maintenance 101 evenings with players from the Pulse team, and invited Pulse members to learn a few key things about their car and ensuring it is running efficiently.

We’re looking forward to the 2019 season and know Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse will come back stronger than ever.
