I hope that you have all had a good break.
As we now all look forward to 2017 what do we have lined up for our members?
We have most of our tournaments confirmed for the year We are just waiting for the location of the under 18s and a confirmed date for the South Island Clubs Competition – this will be a welcomed tournament for the South Island clubs given the absence for a number of years. This year’s Super 5 competition kicks off in Wellington on the 25th February – watch out for more information on this shortly. The UWHNZ web site has all of the details.
On the international front we have the 2017 Age Group World Championships in July and we are working on a competition in September / October in Hawaii for the Men’s and Women’s teams as a build up for the Worlds in 2018 in Quebec. Expect the final appointments for the New Zealand teams to be concluded soon.
Shortly we will be launching an updated web site which will include a membership section for member registration and online entry for all of the UWHNZ tournaments. This will make it easier for you to renew membership and enter teams in our tournaments. Further details on this staged implementation will be provided to Clubs late January.
There are some exciting initiatives that we will be announcing shortly as part of our growth strategy as we look to grow the sport at schools and club level.
2017 will be an exciting year with lots happening in the world of UWHNZ
