Netball at Spark Arena

Spark Arena in Auckland is the largest indoor netball venue in New Zealand, with seating for 12,000 people. Indoor venues such as this transformed the game in New Zealand, making it more attractive for both players and spectators. In this 2011 ANZ Championship game, the blue-clad Northern Mystics are playing the Canterbury Tactix (in red).
