Gatorade and h2go partner with Netball NZ

Netball New Zealand has announced that Gatorade and h2go will be the official hydration suppliers for the Silver Ferns, as well as the wider Netball New Zealand community.

The announcement comes off the back of the signing of a two-year partnership with parent company, Frucor Suntory.

In addition to providing much needed courtside hydration to the Silver Ferns and access to Gatorade's internationally renowned Sports Science Institute, the partnership will also focus on encouraging grassroots participation in netball and celebrating the benefits of enjoying a healthy, active lifestyle via one of New Zealand’s most loved sports.

Netball New Zealand CEO Jennie Wylie says it is exciting to have Gatorade and h2go come on board as hydration partners.

"We have a huge group of enthusiastic players and fans across the country, so we’re looking forward to working alongside h2go to help us grow our grassroots base.

"We are also thrilled that Gatorade will be providing us with proven high performance sports hydration products and access to world leading health and performance research for our elite athletes.“

Frucor Suntory marketing director Tania Bui says the company is excited to partner with New Zealand Netball and the Silver Ferns.

"Having seen the positive impact netball has across the whole community, as the number one female participation sport in New Zealand and the number four sport overall, we see this as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the sport and encourage even more people to get involved.

"We look forward to seeing the partnership come to life over the next few years.”
