Kilbirnie to host Trans-Tasman volleyball test Test volleyball is coming to Wellington, and in the case of the women’s game, for the first time in more than a decade. The New Zealand women will take on Australia in a three-test series over three days next week, with Kilbirnie’s ASB Sports Centre to host the second of them. “It’s basically the first time we have had a test series in New Zealand for 10 years for the senior women’s team,” Volleyball NZ project manager Tim Cleaver says. “We have had one-off games, but to have Australia over for a full test series is a big deal.” Although Australia traditionally

has the wood over New Zealand at senior level, Tim believes the series will be close. “Last year they played each other at the Asian champs. They were competitive games but we went down. “Generally they’re pretty close and at age-group level we play well. “At senior women’s level we don’t get to play them that often which is why Aussie tends to beat us. But this time we’ll have the home advantage. Among the players in the New Zealand squad is Wellington’s Terisa Maulolo who is a staff member at the ASB Centre. “A lot of the girls are on scholarships in the US and are on mid-term break

so will be coming back here to play.” The series will be a litmus test for New Zealand’s from leading up to the Asian Challenge Cup in Hong Kong in September. The three matches will all be held in Wellington. The first will be at Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua on June 6, the second at ASB Sports Centre, Kilbirnie on June 7 and the third at Walter Nash Stadium, Lower Hutt on June 8. All matches will be held from 7.30 or later. The test series immediately follows the New Zealand Provincial Championships which will also be held at ASB Sports Centre over the Queen’s Birthday weekend June 2-4.
