Annies, a subsidiary of food and drink business Kono, are proud to announce its Platinum sponsorship of the new Super Club netball competition, which will be held in Nelson in July.

"Super Club is a great partnership for us," said Rachel Taulelei, CEO Kono. "Hosting an international sports tournament in Nelson will be a great showcase for Te Tau Ihu - the top of the South, and a fantastic opportunity for us to also share our Annies fruit bar range with those who head along.

“Kono has a passion for health and wellness and this is a great fit for Annies – it’s a food you can trust. Our 100% natural fruit bars will be fuelling players with loads of energy. They’re a healthy option for a perfect pre- and post-workout snack, made from 100% fruit, with no added sugar, and are gluten and dairy free. So easy to pop in a sports bag, or for the kids heading along, their lunch box,” said Taulelei.

“We are delighted to have the Annies team on board as one of our partners. It’s great to have the support of the local community for this new international club competition,” said Jennie Wyllie, Chief Executive, Netball NZ.

The partnership will also offer great opportunities for local children to get up close with the star netballers, including “Train with a hero,” and ball boys and girls for the matches.
