AMI Auckland Netball is set to have a great start to the year by announcing a new partnership with Switch CLUBPOWER.

Dianne Lasenby, CEO of AMI Auckland Netball is thrilled with the new funding source and says of the relationship with Switch CLUBPOWER, “This is of real value and a benefit to players, coaches, umpires, fans and friends.”

CLUBPOWER provides value to AMI Auckland Netball members and others by providing good rates on your home or business power and gas accounts. When people switch to CLUBPOWER, AMI Auckland Netball receives $50 per account per year, based on a standard household and this will provide funding for a child to attend a School Holiday Netball Skills Programme that they may otherwise not have been able to attend.

“If a commercial building switches their account to CLUBPOWER, the funding increases dramatically,” explains Nick Yates, MD of Switch Utilities and the brains behind the idea of providing much needed funding to sports clubs as a way of giving back to the community.

“We found that the Holiday Netball Skills Programme at AMI Auckland Netball gave the chance for young people to be inspired and motivated to learn about Netball and maybe even become the next Silver Fern, and they needed funding to provide opportunities continues Yates.

“Nick believes in a triple bottom line business – good for the community, good for sport and good for sustainable business. CLUBPOWER now provides the funding to the children to participate in the Holiday Netball Skills Programme, which is a win for Netball,” concludes Dianne.
