2 BOARD CHAIR’S REPORT - Christine Rodda 2016 has again proven to be an exceptionally busy year for the Board, staff and committees at Christchurch Netball Centre.

The Board successfully completed the Centre’s 2016 – 2020 Strategic Plan and associated Business & Marketing plans and these were delivered to staff and committees Q1, 2016. Thanks to all those involved in this process, their contribution and dedication to ensuring the Centre has a strong strategic direction and focus will ensure CNC continues to deliver netball in Christchurch at a high level with respect and pride.

The Strategic Plan headings follow Netball New Zealand’s own Strategic Plan and are pitched at Centre level and delivery. Grow: • secure and develop an indoor facility to future proof the growth of netball • deliver quality programmes and competitions and increase participation • support development of all involved • build strong relationships with schools, clubs and community Connect: • enhance the profile of netball by creating positive awareness of netball in the community • celebrate success and recognize and reward excellence • recognize past national players, volunteers and life members Win: • provide high quality netball opportunities by promoting and supporting players/officials achieve personal success • develop opportunities for players, coaches and officials with Zone alignment • achieve success at national and zone levels Sustain: • follow best practice in governance, leadership, risk management financial operations, policies and procedures • ensure annual and strategic plans align with Netball Mainland • provide quality career and personal development opportunities to staff • build strong funding and commercial relationships • increase facilities use by the wider community While these statements may appear to be ‘a lot of words’ work has already commenced on several of these objectives such as linkages with non-netball participant schools and the community with the Club Capability project partially funded by Sport Canterbury; the unveiling of the Silver Ferns Honours Board at the Opening Day Breakfast at which many past Silver Ferns attended; representative teams success at both national and zone levels; best practice governance being implemented and enhancing the profile of netball in the community and work is continuing on securing an indoor facility in conjunction with Mainland Football.

There are several large pieces of work to be commenced in the near future including the implementation of the Alumni Committee, a huge project to be undertaken in preparation for centenary celebrations fast approaching.

3 Once again the Charity of Choice was Ronald McDonald House and a successful collection was undertaken at the courts during the annual appeal week. Thanks to the volunteer collectors – this is an amazing charity doing incredible work supporting families at the Ronald McDonald House and it was fitting to have Matt Mark, CEO speak at our end of season Volunteers Dinner. Again the volunteers supported Breast Cancer awareness with donations made at the opening day ‘Pink Breakfast’ in May. I had the privilege of presenting Life Memberships to two very involved and giving people to netball in Christchurch, in particular to umpiring.

Sue James and Jon Russell received these awards at the 2016 AGM. Both of course have umpired at national level, but have also given back in various ways to their sport, Sue as an umpire coach/mentor at many levels, and Jon latterly supporting the growth of junior umpires.

Congratulations to you both – a very well deserved achievement. Attendances at numerous meetings regarding the remediation works for the building have been ongoing, long, involved and fraught with legalities, insurance issues and consent processes, however the building was vacated immediately prior to Christmas and 4 large storage containers now located in the carpark contain most of the chattels and equipment. This was a huge undertaking and I do commend the staff for the calm and organized manner in which they continued with their work right up until their desks disappeared out from under them.

Staff will be located at the Riccarton Cricket Club rooms, Riccarton Avenue until the proposed return to the building mid April. Special thanks to those volunteer males who were seconded to do some heavy lifting and dismantling of equipment and furniture – you may have thought moving house was a mission, try sorting and storage of the contents of a commercial building! We continue our ongoing involvement in discussions, forums, meetings and the like with other sports organisations, CCC and Otakaro representatives as the Metropolitan Sports Facility continues to gain some momentum, albeit slow with a projected completion of the dry area by Q4, 2020.

Kate Agnew from NNZ has had a pivotal role in ensuring all that is required for netball is included in the preliminary design and drawings stage of this project and I thank her for her wisdom, knowledge and her courage to challenge the decision makers on a regular basis. More and more sports are indicating their desire to be users of the facility, which poses the question of accessibility for netball throughout the year for all teams and grades in our competition. As a result, and together with Mainland Football we have continued to explore alternative indoor options in an effort to allow for improved delivery of programmes and competitions over 8+ hours a day 7 days a week for both sports throughout the year.

This project is also very time consuming, has had a lot of highs and lows, endless meetings with developers, real estate agents, lawyers and

4 landowners and as yet has not come to fruition – the right place with the right terms and conditions will become available in the not too distant future, I am sure of that. We have continued to be involved in the Benchmarking Project with other large netball centres and have gained valuable knowledge and information and built some strong and useful relationships as a result of this process. It is good to know that we all share the same topics and concerns and that geographical location does not necessarily mean different issues arise. Late in August we had a ‘short-notice’ visit from the Prime Minister, Right Hon John Key and other dignitaries who were visiting Christchurch.

They chatted with Golden Oldies Netball Teams who have entered in the 2018 International Golden Oldies Festival of Sport to be hosted in Christchurch. A very informal discussion and stories were shared of frivolities and antics which occur at Golden Oldies sports festivals. Mr Key was very willing to learn the art of goal shooting under the watchful eye of Sue Hawkins, Tactix Coach and others at the time. On behalf of the Board I do wish to sincerely thank: • Trudy & Sam Hedges and staff at Victoria Food Services • Greg Knight and the Health & Sport Central team • Philippa Lewthwaite and staff for the ongoing financial advice and support • Our funding partners who have again seen fit to support us this year • All other businesses and sponsors who have supported the Centre • The operational committee convenors – Kay Jenkins (Competitions), Sarah- Jane Paki (Game Officials), Lee McKenzie (Game Development) Michelle Noonan (Junior Netball), Mureen Turfrey (Finance & Audit) and Rowena Clancy (Awards) – you and your committee personnel are to be commended on the actions and achievements achieved this past year.

• The huge number of volunteers who generously donate their time supporting CNC each year • Club officials, players and supporters – you are a special dedicated and amazing group of volunteers.

It was very exciting to welcome two new Board members to the table in 2016, Megan Harlick and Anna Veronese. Megan brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in sport, and prior to a period of time in Italy had been CEO of Canterbury Basketball. Anna of course, is well known to many in Christchurch, not only in netball and brings her passion for the game, her marketing and promotions expertise and desire to make things happen! It is however with some sadness that I record the retirement of Mureen Turfrey effective from the 2017 AGM. Mureen has served on the Board since 2011 (and prior to that the executive).

Thank you sincerely Mureen for the dedication and time you have given to netball in Christchurch following your relocation from Gore – your passion and expertise will be very much missed. As part of succession planning, Janis McIlwain was co-opted onto the Board in July and has utilised her financial expertise and ongoing involvement in the game by adding a fresh perspective and vision for the Centre. It is so exciting to see a new generation of skilled dedicated and passionate people willing to be a part of the organisation at governance level.

5 Biggest thanks of all should go to the CNC staff. Megan, Kay, Kirsten, Sara, and Dee have continued to deliver high quality and efficient support to players, officials, clubs, committees and Board personnel often outside of traditional work hours. Your desire and passion for the game, your energy and willingness to get the job done is to be commended. While it was sad to farewell Kirsten late in the year, we wish her well with her future endeavours in the sport working world and welcome Georgina Bryce to the Netball Development Officer’s role. Penny Martin, Draws Manager also moved onto another sport working environment and was replaced by Karen Urbahn who has slotted into the role with ease.

I look forward to your continued support as we move to another big year ahead at Christchurch Netball Centre. Chris Rodda, QSM Board Chair NETBALL MANAGER – Megan McLay Planning for the recruitment and retention of our valued volunteers has been a focus for the Centre in 2016. We are very aware how lucky our sport is to have the quality and number of volunteers we rely on to deliver our sport. The collaborative and supportive working relationships with the Board, staff and the four committees are an integral part of the ongoing success of netball in Christchurch. As a large centre with a small staff we are fortunate to have a dedicated team who work well together and I value the relationships and commitment these ladies all have.

To the club personnel and those I have had regular contact with during the season your enthusiasm and commitment to your clubs is, as always, inspiring to us all as we continue to move forward to progress and develop this sport we all love. Sponsorship: New World continue to sponsor the New World Senior grade, and the Fair Play awards for 10 teams in the junior grades each week.

Pita Pit continued the sponsorship with Player of the Day vouchers, the very smart shirts for the umpires and jackets for the bench officials. We were delighted to welcome Les Mills on board in 2016 as sponsor of the Senior Reserve grade and the Senior Reserve Most Valuable Player. Our sincere gratitude goes out to 2016 sponsors: • New World • Pita Pit • Victoria Food Service • Lewthwaite & Associates • Expresso Car Wash Café • Les Mills

6 Funding during the year was gratefully received from the Mainland Foundation, Pub Charity, Lion Foundation, New Zealand Community Trust and Rata Foundation.

Building: Negotiations have been completed for building repairs to commence January with an estimated finish date mid April 2017, after the process stalled in 2015/16. Corbel Construction have been appointed to complete the repairs and the opportunity has also been taken to complete some much needed redecorating and updating. Volunteers: My thanks go to all these amazing people who give their time for netball with a great deal of enthusiasm and passion for the game. We are so very proud of the large team of volunteers who not only give their time and expertise so willingly, but who also share their knowledge and talents with others.

It is humbling for me to be able to work with such dedicated and inspiring people.

As in past years, we opened the season with a breakfast to welcome new and existing volunteers to the Centre. This is always an entertaining and enjoyable way to start a busy season. This year we unveiled ‘Our Silver Ferns’ honours board which was received very positively – it was fitting to have several of our Silver Ferns present at the breakfast on this occasion and to be able to recognise them in a more formal way. This board will be hung in the Fern Room at the netball centre along with our other honours boards.

The 2016 season concluded with the Volunteers’ Dinner which was again generously sponsored by Victoria Foods.

Matthew Mark, CEO of Ronald McDonald House was the guest speaker. Matthew spoke of volunteers and their worth and shared some interesting statistics: ‘there are 30,000 charitable institutions in New Zealand to which volunteers give 270,000,000 hours, and to equate those hours into dollars totals $6 billion’. It certainly reiterates the fact that volunteers are unpaid, not because they are worthless but because they are priceless.

This year a Volunteer Award was presented to Lynlea Willan for the amazing voluntary contribution she has made and continues to make to the Hornby Netball Club since its inception in 2009. This Club is well served by this dedicated fanatical ‘nettie’ who has grown the club to be a well-resourced and respected club in just 7 years. Congratulations Lynlea – a well-deserved recognition of your commitment and passion. Judy Blair (L) and Frances Granger

7 COMMUNICATIONS/MARKETING/PUBLICITY – Dee Atkinson Publicity: Once again thank you to the local and national media covering our sport each week – we are very grateful for the support we are given from the following: • The Press, for including articles on competition and players, within their regular sporting features; special thanks to Jane Sewell for covering the Premier 1 Games for the Press and our website reports.

• The Christchurch Star and all suburban newspapers that have published results and stories.

• Weekly spots on grass roots sports radio ‘View from the Stand’ sponsored by Heather Chick Real Estate. Social media: The use of the Centre’s website and Facebook site continue to be excellent resources, not only for results and competition tables but also for news items, documents and other information. This will be complemented in 2017 with a new App available for download to iPhone and Smart Phones using the Sporty NZ App. This initiative from Sportsground will undoubtedly take our communication with our members to the next level. Clubs are encouraged to use these avenues as much as possible so these media become the first port of call for netball information in Christchurch.

In addition, from 2017 our newsletters will be distributed as an eNewsletter via email and also promoted through Facebook and Twitter, with links also on our website. Competition management: We have also worked closely with Sportsground and Netball New Zealand on the exciting new competition management system (SKED) via our representation on the SKED working group. It is anticipated that the SKED system will ready in time for rollout for the 2017 Winter season. Christchurch Netball Centre continues to be at the forefront of developments with Sportsground and it was our pleasure to present at the 2015 Netball New Zealand AGM and Council Meeting on the transition from Sportsground to Sporty which covered our progression with the new Sporty platform, the evolution of the SuperFormTM and the efficiencies of using Sporty as an integrated digital solution.

GAME DEVELOPMENT (Representative & Development) – Kirsten Hill 2016 was another busy year of netball development opportunities being delivered to the netball community and I thank the dedicated Game Development Committee for their support and input to allow this to happen.

8 Representative Teams: Representative teams were selected in the U19, U17, U15 (squad) and U14 age groups this year. An U17B team was included due to U17 Age Group Championships being hosted in Rangiora. This gave an extended group of players and coaches the opportunity to gain tournament experience and represent CNC at a national tournament.

Jess Allen was named in the tournament selection team. The U19 team attended 3 pre- tournament fixtures, Queen’s Birthday tournament in Christchurch, travelling to Wellington and Timaru (played a Dunedin centre team) before heading to Nelson for the NZAGC where the team finished in 3rd place. Caitlin Dowden and Emma Mabin were named in the tournament selection team. This was the second year the Netball Mainland U15 Championships were held. CNC entered 3 teams into this competition (2 x U15 and 1 x U14). In total the NM Championships included 16 teams from within the zone who commenced the championships in pool play over 2 weeks with finals hosted by Christchurch Netball Centre.

This competition is growing in momentum and importance for this age of player.

CNC formed an U15 squad (20 players) who trained together during the campaign with two teams named prior to commencing the tournament. Three teams finished in the following positions U15A 1st; U15B 4th and U14A 5th at Netball Mainland Zone tournament. It was also a great achievement for the U15A team to come away U15 Champions for the second year running. All teams also got the opportunity to play against teams from Dunedin/ North Otago and South Canterbury hosted in Timaru. I wish to thank all returning and new representative team management and umpires for their dedication and commitment during the 2016 season to ensure our representative programme is sustainable – this would not go ahead without these dedicated volunteers.

Summer Training Programme: Alongside the representative programme we continued to deliver a summer programme with the goal to sustain/ build on player fitness for the following season. Coaching Courses: The following NNZ Courses/ Modules have been facilitated by Jennie Hooper, Tammy Mehrtens from Netball Mainland and Rachel Stead from CNC over the past year: Year 7 & 8 29 attendees Starting Out in Coaching 25 attendees Player Centred Coaching 16 attendees Skill Analysis 17 attendees Communicating & Managing others 15 attendees Planning 15 attendees Team Building 17 attendees Mental Skills 7 attendees Through Court 11 attendees Centre Pass 8 attendees Circle Work 12 attendees

9 As a result of coaches attending these modules, CNC has gained 12 more Community Coach qualified coaches – congratulations to you all. This is the level desired for all closed grade coaches to achieve. In additional to the above modules the Game Development Committee also facilitated a ‘Coach’s Catch-up’ targeting coaches in the Under 11-15 grades and the second session focused on coaches in the Under 13 – 19 grades. A wide range of topics were discussed between the 28 coaches who attended the sessions. The Committee also hosted Tanya Dearns and Tania Hoffman (Central Pulse ANZ Championship coaches) at a ‘Coach Connection Breakfast’ which was attended by 18 coaches who participated in the informal discussion and sharing of experiences and knowledge of being involved at various levels of competition as coaches.

BOOST Player Development Programme: In partnership with Tactix players Anna Thompson and Hayley Saunders, CNC rolled out a new and improved BOOST player development programme in term 3. BOOST is an 8 week x 1 hour skills programme aimed at all players aged 8-15 years. The programme was held at Heaton Intermediate School on a Wednesday afternoon with a total of 46 player registrations over the age group. The programme was also offered in Term 4 at Bishopdale YMCA twice a week. BOOST will be continually evaluated to ensure the right content and target group are being provided for.

Thank you everyone I have had the pleasure of working alongside and with during my 7 years at Christchurch Netball Centre – a truly amazing experience and I do count myself lucky to have been part of a progressive and well respected organisation, not only in the world of netball, but sport and the community in both Canterbury and nation-wide. GAME DEVELOPMENT – Lee McKenzie 2016 was a busy season with a major change being the introduction of the Beko league. The league contained a number of U19 players which provided a challenge as to how best manage players and also the impact on how the U19 representative team programme was scheduled.

As a result of this league there was the need to increase communication frequency between Netball Mainland staff and Beko coaches, the Centre and clubs and their team coaches, which certainly benefited the management of players.

The U15 and U14 teams again were amongst the top teams in the Netball Mainland Tournament with the U15A selection taking the title for the second year in a row. I would like to thank the Representative team’s management for their time and effort that they give to our programmes, the players for continuing to enjoy their sport and to the clubs for their ongoing support. As we look to planning for the 2017 season, there are changes that Game Development are planning to implement within the representative area and to increase the knowledge of the Centre’s coaching and management personnel. To achieve success within the representative environment it is not only the players that require more input but also the coaches.

10 Having attended the Netball Mainland Forum and during planning sessions for 2017 questions of ‘who are we here for?’ and ‘what do we want to achieve?’ regularly come up. Game Development believe that the ‘who’ is our netball community and the ‘what’ is to be successful. How we view these two things depends on the level we are discussing as success is different for everyone. It is said that ‘success breeds success’ and we aim for success at all levels from ANZfutureFERNS to franchise team level. Success is also not only restricted to playing but all facets of sport – however underneath all the success we cannot forget that the overriding reason people play and are involved in netball is for fun.

To ensure our netball community continues to have fun, we must ensure we have life-long involvement – it is essential for the growth and longevity of netball. Recent research from Sport New Zealand considers player loading and activity levels across all sports – keep them involved, active, challenged and let them enjoy their participation – this is a major consideration.

So as we bid farewell to 2016 and head into a new season with refreshed energy to make it better than the last season I would like to thank the Game Development Committee for their time and effort and look forward to having a fun filled 2017. 2016 REPRESENTATIVE TEAMS UNDER 19 TEAM Coaches: Rachel Stead, Lee McKenzie.

16 JUNIOR NETBALL– Sara Weeks Junior Netball: 2016 saw the pilot of the new ANZ futureFERNS Years 5&6, 6-aside programme introduced by Netball New Zealand. CNC piloted this for Year 5 only. We also saw the rollout of new Junior Coach Workshops for Years 5&6 and Years 7&8. It was pleasing to see players, coaches and parents, although unsure of the new programme, remain open–minded and ultimately enjoy the season. Junior Coaching Courses: Year 3&4 Coach Workshop: 45 attendees Year 5&6 Coach Workshop: 36 attendees Year 7&8 Coach Workshop: 29 attendees NNZ Star Helpers & Junior Coordinators Workshop: 6 attendees Years 3-5 ANZfutureFERNS: 120 teams registered for ANZfutureFERNS in 2016.

CNC piloted the new 6 aside programme in Year 5 with a total of 40 teams playing on Fridays and Saturdays. Years 3&4 played on Thursday/Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings with a total of 80 teams registered.

Years 1&2 ANZfutureFERNS: Years 1&2 followed a 10 week programme delivered on Sunday mornings during Terms 2 & 3, with a further 5 weeks offered indoors at Wilding Park. Attendance averaged 30 children per session with a total of 57 children registered in the Year 1&2 programme. Thanks to the Junior Coordinators who assisted in delivering this programme. Nettabury: Nettabury (pre-school) was also provided on Sunday mornings. The programme delivered basic movement and netball skills using fun games and activities. Thank you to Wayne Hawker, who delivered the programme each week, with the assistance of parents.

Attendance averaged over 15 children each week.

School Holiday Programmes: Tactix players Anna Thompson and Hayley Saunders facilitated CNC netball clinics during the April, July and September holidays. The July clinic was run as part of Kidsfest programme and was sold out, as was another session added as a result of demand. All the holiday programmes were a huge success with players learning a variety of new skills at each clinic. JUNIOR WHISTLERS – Pam Ormandy 2016 saw 20 ‘1st year’ Whistlers involved on Friday afternoons and 18 ‘1st year’ Whistlers on Saturday morning with 26 returning from 2015 as 2nd year Whistlers.

17 The results were pleasing with 38 Whistlers earning Bronze awards, 40 earning Silver awards and 29 earning Gold awards.

Congratulations to Niva Chittock who was awarded Most Promising Whistler and Caitlynne Hill awarded Most Improved Whistler. It was pleasing to see that 5 of the 2nd year Whistlers umpired at the SISS Junior Netball Tournament and gained valuable experience by their involvement in this tournament. The response from qualified umpires this year as coaches for the Junior Whistlers was very encouraging. I appreciate the time they give up and the experience they pass on to the young Whistlers as without this support the program would not be the success that it is.

JUNIOR NETBALL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE – Michelle Noonan 2016 saw the birth of a new committee specifically for junior netball due to the continued growth in this area. Whilst still in the embryonic stage we are making huge steps towards continued development opportunities for junior netballers and junior umpires. The ANZ futureFERNS’ programme for Years 3 & 4 continued to be offered over 3 days, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. It is planned to continue to offer an indoor option for Fridays in the future, with the number of teams being limited. The ANZ futureFERNS’ Programme for Year 5 was a different format this year with 6 v 6 being the natural progression from Years 3 & 4 who played the 5 v 5 format.

ANZ futureFERNS’ Whistler programme continued to be delivered this year, again with huge success. This programme relies on support from qualified umpires who help and support the whistlers and the tutors Pam Ormandy and Jon Russell. I would like to thank those who have volunteered throughout the 2016 season for Nettabury, ANZ futureFERNS’ and Whistlers programmes; without these people we would not be able to deliver the programmes to the high standards we set ourselves. Thank you to the Junior Netball Development Committee for your involvement and commitment, and to Sara Weeks and Pam Ormandy for all the hard work carried out to ensure the programmes were delivered to such a high standard.

18 GAME OFFICIALS – Kay Norris The aim for 2016 season was to increase the pool of qualified umpires at all levels. While overall numbers have decreased slightly, there was an increase in umpires with higher qualifications ie. Zone & New Zealand. This has been achieved by increasing the number of umpire coaches available and the hard work these volunteers have done. The decrease in overall numbers appears to be for various reasons: family, increased demand on umpires time, injury and issues with coaches/spectators/players. At seasons end, umpire qualifications were: New Zealand level 19 (2 non-current) Zone 18 Centre 42 Level 2 13 Level 1 2 Beginners 0 As a result, the 2016 season ended with no unqualified umpires.

Training workshops were offered at all levels for umpires, and umpire coaches attended workshops facilitated by NNZ and CNC.

Rules evenings held for clubs were better attended this year and it was pleasing that a few clubs invited umpires in to take session at club trainings. This was a major benefit considering there had been rule changes implemented internationally. All clubs that have teams in grades where they are required to provide their own umpires are encouraged to take advantage of the training opportunities offered by qualified game officials. In order to facilitate the Committee’s aim of having more qualified umpires, it is planned to further increase the number of umpire coaches appointed for 2017. I would like to thank the umpires and the umpire coaches for all the time and hard work given to achieve the great results in 2016.

Also a big thank you to all the volunteer umpires and bench officials your dedication and love for the game certainly made our year a success. I would like to thank the Game Officials Committee for your ideas, commitment, time and continued support of umpiring for the Christchurch Netball Centre this year. COMPETITIONS COMMITTEE - Kay Jenkins The Competitions Committee is accountable to the Board of the Christchurch Netball Centre with our principal purpose being to support the Netball Manager in ensuring the smooth running of competition games and other associated tasks.

Firstly thank you to all the administrators, coaches, managers, players, umpires and other volunteers who give generously of their time to make the competition a success each year.

I would also like to thank the Competitions Committee members and Karen Urbahn, Draws Manager. Thanks also to Barbara James who committed every Saturday to the netball office and also to Lyn Mould for almost every Saturday afternoon in the office. I would also like to record sincere thanks to everyone who assisted the Committee during the season, your help was very much appreciated. Players in the Under 11 grades through to Under 15 once again enjoyed the Fair Play awards sponsored by New World. These players are also selected by the Coach/Manager of the opposition team and targeted players who had displayed outstanding fair play characteristics throughout the game.

Once again we were fortunate to have the support of Pita Pit who provided 100 ‘Player of the Day’ vouchers for pitas each playing Saturday. Thank you to everyone who attended the club forum and club administrators’ evenings during the year and provided feedback on competition matters. We appreciate all the feedback received and particularly appreciated those who also provided possible solutions to their feedback.

Another task that comes under the umbrella of the Competitions Committee is the grading of teams into sections for the season. This still remains a challenging role, particularly where there are many teams to be considered. Thank you to all the Grade Managers who worked diligently throughout rounds 1 and 2 to try to ensure that all players get to have competitive games throughout the season. The safety and well-being of players and spectators is always at the forefront of thinking on a Saturday and we are always available at the office to assist with any issues that may arise. We have some new ideas for next season in this area.

It is always good to remember that we are all here to enjoy the game of netball and I hope we have been able assist you all to do this.

22 Finally I would like to thank the Board for their support during the season and a special thanks to Megan McLay for her invaluable assistance to me in the role of Convenor.

26 FINANCIAL – Phillipa Lewthwaite The Financial Statements reflect a net deficit of $98,846 after allowing for a depreciation expense of $120,183 compared with a net deficit for the previous year of $84,619.00. The loss was higher than budgeted due to an increased loss from the centre hire. Operating Income The operating income was $487,608 compared with $520,149 in the previous year. The income in the 2016 year reflected an increase in the income from grants and subscriptions received however this was offset by the loss from the centre hire. Expenditure There was a decrease overall in the expenditure from the previous year of $23,596.

The costs were tightly controlled during the year and were in accordance with the budget set at the beginning of the year.

The Centre has undertaken minimal capital expenditure during the year. Centre Hire The net loss from the Centre Hire was $52,521 due to both a decrease in the hire of the building and increase in maintenance costs. The maintenance costs principally relating to work completed on the lift and earthquake repairs. The reduction in the income being partially due to the scheduled insurance repairs to the building being deferred to the following year. This loss has been offset by the transfer of the funds previously set aside from the building maintenance reserve.

The Centre continues to operate in an increased competitive environment in regard to venues now available.

Financial Position The Centre continues to be in a solid financial position thanks to the tight financial management of the Board together with the ongoing support being received from the community grants, clubs, sponsorships and the many volunteers that continue to support the Centre and netball.
