Parly Ferns take on Media Ferns for good cause

Day three of the Cadbury Netball Series saw politicians and media go toe-to-toe in a charity netball match to raise money and awareness for the Tania Dalton Foundation, an organisation making a huge impact on the lives of young sportswomen.

The exhibition game was part of the Cadbury Netball Series at Pulman Arena in Auckland, where the Silver Ferns competed against Fiji Pearls, the NZ Men’s Invitational team and an All Stars side. The match ended in a 10-10 draw.

Netball New Zealand CEO Jennie Wyllie said it was wonderful to continue supporting the Tania Dalton Foundation.

“Communities and participation are the cornerstone of Netball in New Zealand and we are thrilled to continue backing such a special organisation helping young sportswomen excel.”

The Parly Ferns team included Louisa Wall, Hon Louise Upston, Hon Nikki Kaye, Anahila Kanongata'a-Suisuiki, Maureen Pugh, Jessica Upston, Beatrice Faumuina, Mel Robinson and Cathryn Oliver.

Representing the media side were Carolyn Taylor (Dancing with the Stars and What Now), Alex Mullin (The Edge producer of Dom, Meg & Randell), K’Lee McNabb (Dancing with the Stars and Mai FM), Lucy Hills (The Edge Brand Manager), Emily Reid (Breeze National Promotions Manager), Meghan Robinson (Mystics Manager), Emily Kooperberg (TVNZ), Kirstie Stanway (Sky TV) along with coach Bernice Mene.
