Mother Earth supports young Netballers to see idols

With thanks to Mother Earth, a lucky team of Mother Earth futureFERNS won the chance to attend finals day of the Cadbury Netball Series to see their idols, the Silver Ferns LIVE in action.

For most of these aspiring young players, it was their first ever Silver Ferns match and they were overcome with joy when surprised with the tickets.

We were able to have a chat with some of the New Era Tuis, a Papakura team, to ask them what they thought of their prize.

“We loved the face painting, the cool t-shirts and even the photo booth.”

“It was so fast and they were all super tall. I want to pass like Maria and jump as high as the NZ Men!”

“We even got to meet Jennie Wyllie (Netball NZ Chief Executive). She stopped to say congratulations and told us our shirts were super cool.”

With over 66,000 Mother Earth futureFERNS, Mother Earth is dedicated to supporting the continuous growth and development of young netballers.

This prize allowed some of our youngest players to be inspired by some of the best in the world.

Netball New Zealand and the New Era Tuis want to thank Mother Earth for their ongoing contribution to support the game we love.
