The Trident Homes Tactix have retained world class defender Jane Watson for their 2024 campaign despite the Silver Fern heading north next year.
In a valiant attempt to stay alive in the ANZ Premiership, the Trident Home Tactix have ended their season fighting, losing the final game of the regular season in an extra time thriller, 64-61, to the MG Mystics in Auckland.
With their season on the line, the Trident Homes Tactix defeated Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse 54-45 at TSB Arena in Wellington on Saturday to keep their Finals Series alive.
Take a look at the match-ups coming in the final weekend of the ANZ Premiership regular season, Round 12.
Based in Christchurch and representing the Canterbury region, the Tactix were formed in 2008 after playing in the Coca-Cola/National Bank Cup national leagues as the Canterbury Flames.
The Tactix were one of the founding teams at the start of the semi-professional era for netball which heralded the introduction of the trans-Tasman ANZ Championship in 2008. When that competition ended in 2016, they became one of the six teams to form the standalone elite New Zealand domestic league, the ANZ Premiership.
The Tactix struggled throughout the ANZ Championship but during the ANZ Premiership era have emerged as real challengers, going on to finish runners-up in the 2020 and 2021 Grand Finals.
Helen Mahon-Stroud was appointed the Tactix first head coach in 2008 while Julie Seymour was the team’s first captain.
The Tactix playing strip is in the traditional Canterbury colours of red and black. The team’s main home venues are Christchurch Arena, MainPower Stadium Rangiora and Cowles Stadium, Christchurch.
