Haumoana Netball Club 50th Jubilee





Formation of the Haumoana Basketball Club.

Although there is no original records for 1945, a team was formed and played Basketball socially.

The Club has gone from strength to strength and we are now celebrating 50 years later.

I wonder if those original players ever envisaged just what they had started.

Hundreds of girls over the years have had a chance to play for Haumoana.

A meeting was held in the Haumoana Hall on Tuesday May 7th 1946 to form a basketball club.

There was good attendance.

As the teams were too late to enter into club matches, it was decided to ask various teams around the district for friendly matches.

It was also decided to write to the Secretary of the Haumoana Beach Improvement Society for the use of the picnic ground at the Black Bridge.

The Secretary was asked to write to the Secretary of the Haumoana Football Club for the Basketball Funds which were at present in the Haumoana Football Club account.

It was also passed that the girls bring threepence along to each Club night to pay for the lights in the Hall.

The following Officers were elected:

Comments: It is interesting to note that from this meeting, Lorraine Lindsay, later to become Lorraine Emmerson went on to become The Haumoana Basketball Coach through until the name change to Netball Club. Lorraine then coached the teams until 1969. Lorraine with the support of her husband Brian was the main stalwart in  holding this club together through the years. Lorraine later had a daughter named Joanne who grew up to be a fine Member of the Club also.

Important Year for Hastings Basketball

No other outdoor basketball season has been so eagerly awaited in Hastings as the new season ahead. Officials and players alike view with keen anticipation the honour of being hosts to the New Zealand \outdoor tournament next August. Already many ex-players have come forward with offers of support and assistance and a warm welcome awaits any others who desire to co-operate in what promises to be the sporting highlight of the year for Hawke’s Bay.

Hastings basketball is in a very sound position at present, with a high standard of major players and a progressive band of officials. Miss J. Small has been re-elected secretary and Miss B. Cullen is treasurer.

President is Miss Gladys Symes, who, having already contributed immensely to the welfare of basketball, has undertaken the task of controlling the New |Zealand Tournament Committee. One and all wish her a successful season and will no doubt co-operate to make her term of office a happy one.

The usual grading day will be played tomorrow. This season 35 teams have been registered with the association, this being a record for Hastings. There are seven teams nominated for first grade, nine for the second grade, 11 third-graders and eight in the school’s grade.

A round-up of the clubs indicates that the players themselves are as “keen as mustard” and looking forward with great enthusiasm to the New Zealand tournament. Some minor changes are likely in some of the club sides, but generally the policy of building-up from previous years is being pursued.

CONVENT OLD GIRLS will start the season with good membership, thus enabling them to enter a team in each of the three grades. The senior team will have several vacancies, giving them an opportunity to promote some of their more promising second grade players, and so give them the reward they deserve. Allison Hogan, last year’s College representative at Wanganui, will be an asset in the forward third of the team. Many new faces will appear in the third and second grades and the development of these teams will be eagerly watched. The club is again fortunate in having the services of Rona McCarthy for coaching.

STARR CLUB, now in its fourth season, will have the services of Leta Poole as coach this year, taking over from Mrs. M. Durand. Only two teams will be entered in the club competitions, but both are expected to be fielded with confidence. This year will see Colleen Bartlett, an ex-representative, back with L. Poole, a North Island representative, and M. Isaacson in the defence third of the A team. Centre third players are unchanged and should again combine well. A second grade player, Anne Mayberry also joins this team by reason of her improved play. The second team has lost several of the more experienced players but is confident that promotions from the third-graders will fill the vacancies and lead to a good combination being developed. The club plans another trip to Rotorua at the end of the season.

WATTIES’ CLUB was formed three years ago as an off-shoot of the canneries Social Club, and with thoughtfull encouragement has now established itself. While in the main the club will be fielding much the same team as last year, some newcomers are expected. One of the most important fixtures for the club, from a “domestic” viewpoint, is the annual competition between the Hastings and Gisborne branches of the canneries for the challenge shield presented by Mr. J. McEwan.

HSOG CLUB will be fielding at least four teams again and with 18 new members enrolled already the club is looking forward to another enjoyable season. Missed this year will be Betty Hellyer, who is now married and living in Auckland. Margaret Stuart, the Hawke’s Bay champion athlete, succeeds her as club captain with Jean Peebles as vice-captain. Among the better known players who will be missing too are Minola Apatu of Huiasm [Huias] and Pauline List of Tuis. Joan Southcott, of Robins, is concentrating on refereeing this season. She gained New Zealand theory pass last year. Also absent for the start, at any rate, will be Elaine Long, who is in hospital. Fay Roil (nee Driver) is back playing again and with six of last year’s Hawke’s Bay representatives playing for Huias they should be assured of further success this season. Stella Lassen will be coaching for the club this year.

UNITED CLUB have registered with their first team a promising team of schoolgirls in the fourth grade. United, whose combination is one of their strong points, will once again prove a strong side in the first grad. Past Hawke’s Bay representative’s Sheila Coombes and Yvonne McLean’s (nee Franklin) should help the young side, which gained valuable experience last season.

HAVELOCK NORTH fields their first grade team with more confidence, having this season a coach to give the finish to their play. Many previous players are still with the club and Hawke’s Bay representatives. Rene Fulford and Lois Kitt, will again add strength to the team. Patsy O’Carroll from Waikato and Marlene Whyte are the two new members to the strong team.

JLP having gained many new players, will field two teams. Last season’s team, which accounted well for itself in third grade, have moved up a grade, needing only two replacements[?]. This team should be well to the fore in the higher grade. Another list of new names has been forwarded with the fourth grade team.

OLYMPIC CLUB, now in its third season, will only field one team. With many promising players it is time for some good results to be heard from this club. The team comprises a combination of last year’s red and grey teams, with two new members.

HIGH SCHOOL will be fielding eight teams, two of which are the Schools grades and comprising of third formers only. The school A team has six of its players back again this year and hopes to have a more successful year. This year the teams are being coached by Mrs. Pickernell, Miss Green, Miss Dean and Miss Sim. Sue Cox and Judith Powell are two promising young forwards and Pat Scott a steady defence. In the last few years the High School has been well represented in the third and fourth grade representatives and hopes to keep this up. In this and last years third formers there are many promising young players to keep up the standard of basketball. As well as the association matches the school teams play matches against other Hawke’s Bay schools, notably Napier High, Iona College, Woodford House, Hukarere, and Dannevirke High School with more sustained success than against the association teams.

HAUMOANA again fields two teams. Three fourth grade players showed much improvement last season and will be included in the third grade making a strong team. The travelling distance is a disadvantage to this club but it does not mar the keen club spirit that prevails each week.

MARATHON CLUB is the name chosen for the new club which joined the association this season and it will be coached by Mrs. N. Macklow. Club colours will be junior navy and gold. Two teams have been registered, one second grade and one third grade. Some experienced players and two new faces to this district, J. Poulter, and L. Lister, are combining well. The third grade team shows promise and gives a complete new group of players to the association.

This year the club will have blazers with attached monograms added to the uniform.




Ebbett Park, Hastings, was a grand sight on Saturday afternoon when 35 women’s basketball teams assembled in front of the pavilion for the official opening of the 1954 season by the patroness of the Hastings Basketball Association, Mrs. W. E. Bate, mayoress.

All teams took part in the opening day grading matches and the report of the grading committee is awaited. It is known that several changes are to be recommended to the executive, and judging by the results of this committee’s recommendations last season, if accepted, these recommendations will undoubtedly prove wise decisions.

Results of games played are as follows:-

Series A. – COG A 9 v. Havelock North 6, Robins 22 v United A 9, Huias 11 v Staff A 6, HSA 18 v COG A 6.

Series B. – HS B1 19 v Marathon A 7, HS B2 22 v Wrens 9, JLP 9 v Tuis 1, JLP 12 v COG B 11, Olympic 17 v HS Jr. A 6, Conv. High Gold 11 v Starr B 7.

Series C – Conv. High Blue 12 v HS C1 5, HS C2 21 v Marathon B 2, Nurses 10 COG C 2, JLP B 7 v Conv. High Yellow 4, Conv. High Red 10 v Watties 16, Conv. High Green 3 v Haumoana A 9, Conv. High Blue 13 v Marathon B 1, Nurses 8 v HS Jr. B 0 (15 mins. only).

Series D. – Conv. High Green 7 v Haumoana B 7, HS D1 13 v Conv. High White 3, Haumoana B 4 v United B 4, HS Jr. B 15 v Conv. High Yellow 3.

Five changes were recommended by the Grading Committee comprising Mesdames S. Lassen and M. Durand and Miss Symes. Three teams are to be graded higher than their entry sought and two teams were graded to a lower division.

It is claimed, with considerable merit on past experience, that teams benefit by this system of grading as better basketball is provided from more keenly contested games. There is little to gain from a one-sided match. Seven teams have been placed in the first grade, 10 in the second, 10 in the third and eight in the fourth. In the First Grade section teams many changes of personnel are noted, making it difficult to predict at this stage respective successes. HSOG Huias, last season’s champions, again field an imposing side.

In the First Grade all players should have the New Zealand tournament in view and be working hard for representative selection. Individual fitness is a vital factor in representative form, and something that is entirely the responsibility of the individual.

It would seem that this season the Second Grade will be a more evenly contested section. The winners last season were HSOG. Tuis, this season are fielding many new players.

Club spirit and teamwork are features of many of the clubs, and appreciating this the association is arranging a number of competitions in connection with the effort to raise funds for the national tournament. Teams will benefit at the same time from active participation in these. A Series of combined clubs’ monthly dances will be held, and then there will be a shop day. A competition has been arranged for the best articles produced for the shop, and these will be judged on May 22 and June 5.


Colourful Scene When Basketballers Open New Season

Opening day of the outdoor basketball season at Ebbett Park, Hastings, last Saturday presented a colourful sight, with teams from 13 clubs arranged in their different uniforms. Mayoress and patroness Mrs. E. E. Bate was prompted to comment upon the attractive display the 35 teams made when assembled before her during the opening ceremony.

Indeed as the opening day appeared to be about the only occasion when all the basketball girls can be gathered together, the executive of the Hastings Basketball Sub-Association is giving serious consideration to a suggestion that a March Past of teams would be a fitting item. This might well be introduced next season.

In view of the keen interest being taken in the preparations for holding the New Zealand tournament at Ebbett Park in August, it is only natural that reference should be made by the various speakers at the opening ceremony to this forthcoming occasion. Ample evidence was provided that there was no lack of enthusiasm over the tournament, and that Hastings basketballers were determined to be first-class hosts.

After wishing all a successful and enjoyable season, which she duly declared open, Mrs. Bate endorsed the comment made by the Association president, Miss G. Symes, that “it was not the winning or losing, it is the way we win or lose that counts and the spirit of the game.”

I remember that I had my sixteenth birthday on this trip. I was presented with a birthday cake and on it it had a miniature basketball which my mother still has. I also recall that the grey pleated skirts of our walking out uniform seemed to come down to our ankles. On the Friday night all the girls and ladies brought fruit and we had a feast in one of the rooms. I particularly remember the pineapple. When we got on the bus after every stop we used to number off but we never ever used number thirteen. On the Saturday of the game we were warming up to play when this men’s team came along dressed in hula skirts and such.

We always had long red and white ribbons hanging from the badge on our blazers and we were very proud of our walking-out uniform and people used to comment on how nice the club liked.

The girls of Haumoana play basketball,
they are a charming lot of girls,
some are short and some are tall,
some have short hair and some have curls.

In their smart uniforms they look real neat,
everyone says” Don’t they look sweet.

I’ll always remember the day,
I went to the courts to see them play,
I really expected to be bored to tears,
but I saw the best game that I had seen for years.

They marched on the courts looking bashful and shy,
but when the game started boy oh boy,
the team that they played was real strong,
but the Haumoana girls could do no wrong.

They waltzed up the court with the greatest of ease,
as graceful as girls on a flying trapeze.

when the goalie put the ball in the net,
we all sang out, Another one yet!

The whistle blew,
the game was won,
they trooped off the court to Mrs. Emmerson
she looked at her girls as proud as a queen,
and she loved them all that was plainly seen.
Of course had they lost we all would agree,
it would have been the fault of the referree [referee].

Happy as Larry,
off to the pavilion they trot,
for a cup of tea,
or a bottle of pop.

They are charming young people and nice to know,
friendlier girls you’d not meet anywhere you go.
Many of their parents and supporters I’ve met,
and their friendly acceptance I’ll never forget.

No wonder I look forward to each Saturday,
I meet nice folk and see the girls play.
So good luck to you girls who live by the sea,
as long as I live count on support from me.

This was written by Mr. John Foddy for the girls of the club. John Foddy was an elderly gentleman who would turn out in all weather every Saturday…

He was made a Life Member of the Club in 1968.




We apologise for this report being so late.

At our Annual General Meeting on the 20th March, 1968 our Officers and Committee were elected as follows:-

OFFICERS:   Patroness:   Mrs Richardson
President:   Mrs Townsend
Secretary:   Miss C. McGuinness
Treasurer:   Miss J. Hope
Coach:   Mrs L. Emmerson
Asst. Coach:   Mr. R. Boynton

COMMITTEE:   Mesdames: Clarke, Birch, McLaren, Werry [Werrey], Lean, Butcher, Davies, Emmerson, Townsend, Robin, Baker, Rawstrone, Jensen, Boynton.
Misses:   McGuinness, Hope, Baker, Clarke.

CAPTAINS:   “A” Team   C. Townsend
“B” Team   J. Unahi
“C” Team   S. Matarangi [Matairangi]
“D” Team   Y. Brady


We seem to move from strength to strength, for this year we have four teams, again, one up. All the teams were up graded this year and this accounts for the lack of success. The teams were graded as follows:

“A” Team   2nd Grade
“B” Team   3rd Grade
“C” Team   3rd Reserve Section One
“D” Team   4th Grade

The lateness of this report accounts for the reason why there is only three games left to be played and only the “B” Team is having any measure of success. The up grading will be the reason for this. The “A” Team have only three wins to their credit and therefore have no standing in their competition grade. The “B” Team having only two losses, are at the moment 2nd and can only win this if the leading team is betten [beaten] and this does not seem very likely to happen. Haumoana White (“C”) Team, although showing a marked improvement in the second round are still out classed in this grade and have not been successful in gaining a place. Haumoana Red (“D”) also shows a marked improvement and have only six points in their favour.

These teams were not registered in these grades but the grading committee saw fit to up grade all our teams and the [?] situation proves that we were right and they were wrong.

The bus we have been using each Saturday is still proving a big success in every way.

Two members of the “B” Team, J. Hope and D. Pohartu [Pohatu], were picked for the representatives trails, but were unsuccessful in gaining a position in the rep. team.


The organisation behind the Housie evening held each Wednesday donated their proceeds from the evening of the 29th May towards the Club funds. As many as possible of our members and players were asked to go and it proved to be a very profitable evening for us. They have also arranged for us to have another evening on Wednesday, 21st August and again the more members ther are their the more money we are likely to receive. Therefore we would like to see more of our Vice Presidents there. These evenings are not late and the first evening was great fun.


We are having another petrol raffle this year as there seems to be no problem in selling the tickets. Most of you will no doubt have tickets and it is to be drawn on the 2nd September. There are two prizes;

1st Prize   44 Gallons Valued at $17.16
2nd Prize […] Gallons Valued at $7.80


1 Clifton Rd.,

28th November, 1969

Mr B. Emmerson,
Grange Rd.,HAUMOANA.

Dear Brian,

On behalf of our Club, I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for your kind donation of twenty gallons of petrol for the second prize of our annual raffle.

Also I would like to thank you for allowing the senior members “man the pumps” for a whole weekend and receive the profits from all the petrol they sold. I can assure you this was much appreciated and the girls thoroughly enjoyed their new experience.

Thanking you once again,

Yours faithfully,

All senior girls that “manned” the petrol pumps were dressed in their playing uniform. It was an entirely new and novel way of fund-raising.

Sue Birch received the Hastings President Trophy.

This year the subs will rise to $1.50c.

Our trip this year will be to Materton [Masterton] staying at Victoria Travel Hotel.

Club members this year are: U. Lean, B. Townsend, J. Davie, P. McLaren, Mrs. Richardson, S. Birch, K. Anstis, G. Oliver, N. Waikari, M. O’Sullivan, P. Brady, R. Werrey, J. Unahi, Y. Brady, M.

The A Team and the Red Team are runners-up in their grades.


Two senior teams and seven women committee members and Judith McKay as chaperone went to Gisborne. Everyone was dressed in uniform of grey skirts, white blouses, red cardigans, black blazers, black shoes and looked extremely smart.

We left Hastings at 1pm. on Friday 24th July in an N.Z.R. bus, arriving at Lincoln House, Fitzherbert Street Gisborne at 6pm. Dinner awaited our party after which everyone went into town until 8.30pm. We all had an early night with the thought of netball the next day. We were all very pleased with the standard of accommodation provided. The proprietors could not have made us more welcome or comfortable.

We arrived at the courts in Roebuck road at 8.45 am. Each team faced four compulsory games, regardless of losses. Games spread over the day with any team with four wins going on to the quarter finals.

We entered our two teams in the Patsy Burke Memorial Shield section and our results are as follows:

A team. 3 wins and one draw.
B. team. 2 wins, 1 draw and one loss.

This meant that neither team made the quarter finals, but were by no means disgraced.

We found the Tournament to be well organised but the standard of play and umpiring left something to be desired, the weak umpiring resulting in extremely rough play.

This situation leads us to be more appreciative of the standard of umpiring in our own Association.

Report from Gisborne Trip

We had a very enjoyable time in Gisborne, mainly because of the way all girls mixed together. The A Team has two wins and three losses and the B Team were unsuccessful in all their games. While the bus was parked outside our Masonic Hotel, it was broken into and some of our gear was stolen. Police are looking into the matter.

This year we will update our club badges. We will have Netball Club on them to replace the old Basketball Club wording.

A farewell evening for Lorraine Emmerson was held in the Pavillion. Many present and past members turned out to farewell and wish Lorraine the best on her final retirement from Coaching the Haumoana Basketball Club and through to now Netball Club. A social evening was held and my players were able to reminiscence about days gone by, trips gone by, and all the good things that have happened in the club over the years. The club presented Lorraine with a canteen of cultery [cutlery] and a travel bag. It was a farewell that was quite sad in a way as Lorraine had taken the Club from the early days of existence to the Might strength that it is today. The time, effort, patience, and at times frustration, time away from her family, and the total commitment that Lorraine gave to the club as Coach will never be repeated.

A Field day was held on 12th. August with four grades.

For our wind-up this year we are going to the D.B. Heretaunga Hotel for a Smorgasbord dinner. on a Sunday night.

This year our club trip will be to Masterton.


On the week-end of 27th to 29th. July, fourteen players, our coach and five committee members left Hastings at 4.30pm. by N.Z.R. Road Services Bus. We stopped in Dannevirke for tea and arrived at Solway Park Hotel at 9.15pm.

Saturday morning we went to the courts at Waiarapa [Wairarapa] College for games against Collegiate. The A team won and the B. team lost. Both games were most enjoyable.

Saturday afternoon we drove through Caterton [Carterton] and Greymouth where we visited a cheese factory, a museum and the Mount Holdsworth Reserve.

In the evening most of us stayed at the Hotel. A few of the older girls went to a dance in one of the bars adjoining the Hotel.

This year the world Netball Championships will be held in Auckland, and some of our members will be attending, namely Mrs. Butcher, Mrs. Emmerson, Mrs. Townsend, and Kay Christofferson.

Our pre-season training will start at the Haumoana School this year. This is only until the Tennis Club have finished their season at the Park.

The club will hold a gala at the park this year for fund-raising. We invite other clubs in the district to take part also.

This year our shop day will be at the Clifton Domain. Members will bake cakes and make things such as coleslaw etc. It is thought that the campers will appreciate freshly baked cakes. Everyone in the club is expected to participate as this will be the main fund-raising venture. We realise that it is out of season but a meeting will be called beforehand to organise.

A motion was moved and passed that any girl who fails to attend three practices in a row without an apology is out of the club for the remainder of the season.

This year the club trip will be to Rotorua. We will stay at the Bungalow Private Hotel.

We will enter one team in the Giorgi Tournament which will be held on the 31st. August.

This year our trip will be to Wanganui, staying at the Flag Inn.

We were to hold a garden party but decided to have the gala at the Memorial Park instead because there is more room. Other clubs have been invited to have stalls also.

This year we will have our end of year dinner at the D. B. Heretaunga.

The Haumoana A team will now become Haumoana Old Girls.

The club has decided to purchase Life member badges and these will be presented to those members at the Club Field Day.

The club will hold a Cabaret in the Haumoana Hall. Our club trip this year will be to Gisborne. A close vote was held and the President used her casting vote to support the Gisborne trip.

We will stay at the Masonic Hotel again as it is cheaper there and we are all close together.

The juniors will have their trip to Palmerston North and they will stay at the Chaytor Anne Motel.


Officers of the club elected at the Annual General Meeting are as follows:

Patroness:   Mrs. J. Butcher.
President:   Mrs. B. Townsend.

This year we have three teams playing in the Hastings Competition.

Haumoana Old Girls are in Second grade.

Haumoana A. Team is in third grade.

Haumoana B Team is in Reserve flight grade.

All club skirts are to be 8 inches above the ground when kneeling.

The Haumoana Old Girls Team are to get new ‘wrap around skirts’. These skirts were later to be called ‘blankets’ as they were so heavy and very hot to play in.

This year on 7th; July we will have a cabaret at the Clive Rugby Club rooms.

Our club dinner will be at the D. B. Heretaunga.

Because of the increase in fees to the Hastings Assn. we have had to increase our club fees as well.

Senior players = $10
High School Players = $7.

Our trip to Gisborne this year will see the teams playing in the Patsy Burke Memorial.

The club will stay at the Masonic Hotel as it is slightly cheaper and is right in the Main street of Gisborne.

The house bar will be open til late so there is no need for the girls to have to go out on the Saturday night.

The only problem with this Tournament is that it has grown so large over the last few years that it has been extended to all day Sunday as well. Any of our teams making the finals would not finish until late Sunday afternoon and we would be leaving very late to return to Hastings. We may have to look at other alternatives.

As we have some spare seats on the bus we will give some Clive netball players a ride to Gisborne.


Officers of the club for 1981 are as follows:

Patroness:   Mrs. N. Manning.

LeBas, R. Heaps, K. Christie, D. Unahi, P. Williams, A. Christie, S. Randell, N. Manning, J. McKay, F. Kyle, C. Christie, A. Caldwell.

This year we are to have new skirts. All teams will be in the same uniform from now on.

We will donate our old skirts to the Haumoana School.

This year we have four teams in the club.

We will also hold a gala at the park and invite other local groups so that they can fund-raise also.

Our senior teams will travel to Rotorua for their trip this year. We will be staying at the Rotokawa Lodge which is a little way out of town but excellent accommodation.

The Junior team will travel to Taupo on a Saturday morning and will stay at the Spa Hotel.

We will hold an evening at the Mayfair Hotel as a find-raiser.

This evening turned out to be a ‘flop’.

It was freezing cold, the band was too loud and the crowd was small.

We held a cabaret at the Haumoana Hall which was very successful.

This year we have changed our ruling regarding players on the committee. From now on, players can be elected to the committee.

This year we are to introduce a rubber ball. Other clubs are using them and it is thought that they will be ideal in wet weather.

Judy McKay received the ‘Silver Whistle Trophy from the Hastings Assn.

On the way back from Gisborne, the bus was running out of brakes coming down the Morere hill. While we waited for another bus to arrive from Hastings, we amused ourselves by singing and soing [doing] square-dancing on the side of the road.

The last people were dropped off in Hastings at 11.30pm.

The new uniforms have been completed and all five teams are now wearing the new uniform. It is much easier than three different coloured skirts.

Instead of a gala this year we will hold a Market Day in the Haumoana Hall and invite other local groups to participate also.

Our club trip will be to Rotorua again. We will be staying at the Rotokawa Lodge.

Remember when

Haumoana Netball Club to celebrate 50 years

Marion Morris
Staff reporter, Hastings

The Haumoana Netball Club, which will mark its 50th Jubilee at Labour Day weekend, is expecting more than 100 at the celebrations.

Among those coming are ex-players from throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Those organising the Jubilee have had their task made easier because the club’s records are complete down to the minutest detail of its existence of those 50 years.

Delwyn Cameron, Matamata, a former club member is undating a magazine of the club’s history and finding many aspects of interest.

“Haumoana never trialled its players and it still doesn’t. Whoever turns up gets a game,” she said.

“It has had remarkably few coaches – seven only, and many original players now have daughters and granddaughters who play. It has always been like a family.”

“In fact the history of the club is a bit like the history of Haumoana,” Mrs Cameron said.

The club was formed at a meeting on May 7, 1946, after a year in which only friendly matches were played.

The minutes of that first meeting included:

“It was decided to write to the secretary of the Haumoana Beach Improvement Society for the use of the picnic ground at the Black Bridge.

(Mrs Cameron said there were no real courts at that stage on the picnic ground).

“It was passed that the girls bring threepence along each club night to pay for the lights in the hall.

“The following officers were elected: President, Mrs Krebs, Vice presidents: Mrs Holden, Mrs McNiven, Mrs Nitchkie [Nitschke] and Mrs McQuarrie [Quarrie]. Secretary/treasurer, Mrs Ruby Twort, Coach, Miss Edna Steele. Committee: Edna Steele, Lorraine Lindsay, Ida Boaler and Ruby Twort.”

A Herald-Tribune report in 1954 stated: “Haumoana again fields two teams. Three fourth grade players showed much improvement last season and will be included in the third grade making a strong team. The travelling distance is a disadvantage to this club but it does not mar the keen club spirit that prevails each week.”

Mrs Cameron said players had to take a bus from Haumoana to Hastings depot and then walk to Ebbett Park.

She plans to publish the club history after the jubilee so that photographs and reports of the jubilee functions can be included.

The three-day jubilee programme begins with a wine and cheese evening on Friday at the Haumoana Hall for members and ex-members. On Saturday there will be junior, senior and oldies netball games played at Haumoana Memorial Park.

An official welcome will follow with morning tea and photo sessions.

At night husbands and partners will join members and ex-members at a function at the Cheval Room at Hastings Racecourse where a jubilee cake will be cut at the jubilee dinner.

On Sunday morning a church service will be held at Haumoana Memorial Park followed by morning tea and farewells.

Thank you to the organising committee for bringing us all together and for the work that this has entailed.

I would like to recognise the presence of ex-Patronesses Netta and Aunty Beth, mentors and coaches, Judy and Delwynne, our life members and all players past and present.

I would like to acknowledge the important contribution that our present Patroness, Joyce Butcher has made to our club. Joyce has remained an active member every year-helping us whenever requested and always on had to assist at tournaments and each year at the presentation-we applaud her for her continuing support.

50 years is a milestone and it is appropriate that we should gather at the venue for this auspicious occasion.

Over the years this club has at times struggled to survive, especially with the demise of the Whakatu Freezing Works and the shift of residents to other towns, but survive we have and as will have been evident today we’ve continued to represent our club with honour and respect for good competition and fair play.

We are recognised in Hastings for providing not only good competitive teams but also some top umpires-this good example being set by Judy who was awarded the Silver Whistle Trophy, and has been carried on by Rose and Aera who are both highly qualified. I’d also like to acknowledge the contribution made over the years by Debbie, Tania and this years senior players who passed their Elementary Award-Deborah Lee, Angeline Ramsay and Crystal Randell.

We are represented in Hastings by myself on the Executive Committee, the Grading Committee and the Twilight Committee and I try to foster good relationships with other clubs and executive officers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have made a major contribution over many years coaching the junior players. Namely Aera and Debbie whose teams flourished under their care, and to congratulate Donna Kingi who took on the role of junior coach this year and had a most successful season with her team coming runners-up in Collegiate D Grade.

For me personally it has been a very rewarding season with the seniors losing only two games and taking out the Open B Reserve Grade Cup, coming from behind to win their final in grand style by one goal – a coach’s sideline nightmare!!

Six members of this team were all previously junior players for this club and I was very proud of their achievement this year.

Today we saw evidence of some of the good players that have been through the club – albeit some a little rusty – and many saying “the mind knew where to go but the body wouldn’t take me there!” – but enjoyable nonetheless.

Over the years I have seen that this is not just a netball club but more an extended family – perhaps more important still we are friends and friendships forged within this club are lasting, and as evidenced the past two days by all the hugging and kissing that’s gone on – this will continue.

The jubilee has given us time and the opportunity to renew friendships and share past experiences.

In conclusion, I would ask you to support us – we need help with coaching in ’96, we need committee members for ’96, we could have a Masters’ Team in ’96 – the possibilities are endless.

We will carry on – we hope you will join us –

I look forward to us all meeting in the year 2005 to celebrate 60 years!




On Friday 20th; our celebrations began with a wine and cheese evening at the Haumoana Memorial Pavillion.

It was an evening where past and present members rekindled old friendships, recalled memories of playing days, events and Club trips of the past.

The hundreds of photographs on display received a lot of attention, especially the hair styles.

All registered members received an engraved wine glass.

Key rings and special badges were also able to be purchased.

Saturday Morning.

At 9am. Past and Present members, Supporters and invited guests from the Hastings Netball Association were welcomed to the ReUnion and Netball games by Rosemary Stanley.

The Haumoana Junior Team took the court to do battle with some of the earlier players. Short games of only six minutes each way seemed like a full game to the “oldies”.

It was gratifying to see the 1946 team take the court.

As we moved into the 1980’s past players, the Haumoana Senior current team took them on.

It was commented by many that former players had not lost their flair for the game.

A Mother and daughter game was held which was a lot of fun.

A photo session of each ten year group was held.

The morning concluded with a welcome cup of tea and delicious cakes.

Saturday Evening.

We gathered once more at the Pavillion for pre dinner drinks and nibbles.

As more past players and members had arrived it was time to catch up with each other again.

We seated for Dinner and we observed a minutes silence to remember absent friends.

Rosemary Stanley thanked those members of the Committee who had worked tirelessly in organising the Event. Rosemary and Rosalyn Wilson were presented with a bouquet [bouquet].

Neta Manning and Beth Townsend who are Life Members, Past Presidents and Past Patronesses received beautiful Sprays.

The present Patroness and Life Member Joyce Butcher and her grand daughter Coralee Butcher who is the youngest Club member were called upon to cut the cake. This beautiful cake was made by Life Member Barbara Jensen and decorated in red and white colours with the club shield. It was well photographed.

Everyone agreed that the Dinner was excellent and the catering staff were thanked by the Club.

Shirley Randell, Club President spoke about the Club and called on all present to support the Club in future to get us through to the next reunion.

After two desserts each the photo gallery was studied again.

As traditional on netball trips or when groups get together, singing broke out. The first song: You will never grow old” seemed to have a new meaning to the works.

It was a night of nostalgia, a coming together of past and present players all who would have had pride in saying at some time “I play for Haumoana”.

The evening concluded with everyone promising to be on time for Church in the morning.

Sunday Morning.

Members gathered once more at the Pavillion for a special Service. Former member Jean Hantler played the Organ and lead the singing. After a short service we all gathered downstairs for morning tea. After more photos, hugs and kisses, promises to keep in touch, and a few teary eyes, everyone left to return to all parts of New Zealand and Australia.

Congratulations to the Committee for a wonderful week end and “Three Cheers” to all players, committees and supporters who have kept the Club growing strong over the past 50 year.

See you all at the next reunion.

Ka Kite.
