ANZ wants to make the Dunedin netball community’s dreams come true.

Dunedin netball players and teams are being encouraged to apply for support as part of the ANZ Dream Delivery programme.

With the launch of the ANZ Premiership, New Zealand’s new elite domestic netball competition, it is an exciting time to be a netball player at any level across the country.

ANZ is calling for entries in its Dream Delivery programme to help Dunedin netball players achieve their dreams this season.

Whether it is new high performance gear to propel performance, training and tips by some of the best in the sport or inspirational visits from their netball heroes, ANZ is looking to help.

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue McGregor said, “we are proud to support netball at all levels, from grassroots right up to the Silver Ferns”.

“We know sometimes all you need is just that little bit of extra help to achieve your dreams, so we are committed to helping as many netball fans as we can.”

Already this season, a dream came true for a lucky group of 150 high school netball players who were surprised with a training session led by seven high profile stars of the ANZ Premiership.

The pupils were taken through an intense training session to help show them what it takes to build their fitness before the start of this year’s netball season.

And just recently an injured 11-year old netball player had the chance to share the court with the Southern Steel during the first game of the ANZ Premiership as the team’s mini-manager.

Gracie ran on to the court with the team wearing her own personalised Southern Steel kit.

She also joined the post-match cool down, team debrief and dinner.

Dunedin netball clubs, teams, players and fans can tell ANZ what they need to achieve their dreams online at www.anz.co.nz/dreambig. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, June 28.
