Artificial pitch boost for
Wellington College sport
By JOSEPH ROMANOS
Work has begun on an artificial
turf at Wellington College after
an unusual joint initiative
between the school and Welling-
ton City Council.
The $1.4 million turf is the
fifth the council has been
involved in over the past couple
It will help remedy the prob-
lem of footballers and rugby
players having their matches
cancelled in winter because of
muddy or waterlogged fields.
We re delighted, said council
sports portfolio leader John
The turf will be shared
equally by the school and the
council, which have split the

evening except Friday, plus
Saturday afternoon and all
He said the artificial turf at
Nairnville, Te Whaea and
Wakefield Park had proved
hugely popular. They give
players certainty that their
game will go ahead, and we ve
noticed more people, including
golden oldies and business
house-type competitors, are
keen to play again.
Mr Morrison said the field
would serve not only 1600
students from Wellington city,
but also their opposition, also
mainly from the region.
Wellington College principal
Roger Moses said Mr Morrison
should be congratulated for his
work in driving through the

have suffered from the
vicissitudes of the Wellington
weather, which has had an

be, has been lengthened to 90
metres. It is expected to be
ready for use by next March.
Mr Morrison said another
council-school partnership was
about to pay off, as well.
We are nearly over the line
with an artificial pitch at St
Pat s College, he said.
That field will be about 97
metres long. The school is just
about ready to sign off on it, so
that will be more good news for

Safe: Evana Schinkel of Hawke's Bay reaches second
base, watched by Johnsonville's Jardene Tipa.
Johnsonville narrowly lost the Saints premier
softball tournament final 1-0 to the Hawke s Bay
Dodgers at Fraser Park on Sunday.
National director of coaching Naomi Shaw said
the Dodgers were an impressive team.
It was a really good result for Hawke s Bay, who
travelled all the way down here on Saturday and
then got a difficult draw. They did very well
Shaw said she was also delighted to see how well
the younger players performed.
That was a standout feature for me, the number
of young players throughout the whole competition
who were playing a high standard.
Six teams competed at the tournament. Porirua
City United beat Newlands for the third place.
The Dodgers Courtney Gettins was named top
pitcher and Porirua City United s Matie Whitman
