General Business

Uniforms at NZPA Tournaments

The media has commented on the difficulty of identifying teams/players at national tournaments. NZPA has suggested teams should look at co-ordinated polo shirts. There is resistance to uniforms. However we have to consider that publicity means sponsorship and sponsors need publicity. A WPA polo shirt may need to be considered for inter regional competitions.


Liz agreed to talk to INL Newspapers re publicity.

WPA to negotiate with the Kapiti Pétanque Club re fee for use of their facilities.
