Call for changes to

improve tricky mall exit

• By Caitlin Miles

TWO RESIDENTS’ groups are

banding together to try and get a

resolution to Barrington shopping

centre’s contentious entrance and

exit, that they say is dangerous.

The Spreydon Neighbourhood

Network and Somerfield Residents’

Group want the right-hand turn

onto Barrington St changed due

to safety concerns they have for

motorists and pedestrians.

Currently drivers leaving the

mall car park can either turn left or

right onto Barrington St but must

cross a line of traffic and a turning

lane to be able to go right.

Barrington retail manager Jill

Kearns said the mall owners

are in discussions with the city

council about the potential removal

of the right-hand turn out of

the mall.

But Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Karolin Potter said while she too

disliked the intersection – it would

be an issue for the incoming board

after the October elections to

resolve.

The Spreydon Library and

Barrington Park are located next

to the exit and the Spreydon

Neighbourhood Network Sonya

Hodder said they are worried about

motorists safely turning right and

pedestrians being able to carefully

walk across the entrance and exit.

Mrs Hodder said the exit is “an

accident waiting to happen” and

she wants things changed before it

can go wrong.

The network approached the

Somerfield Residents’ Group to ask

for their support on the issue.

Group chairwoman Julie Tobbell

agreed with the network about the

concerns.

“It’s really hard, cars come in and

out everywhere,” Mrs Tobbell said.

The residents’ groups also have

concerns around pedestrians being

able to safely walk across the main

entrance to the mall.

“We would like a footpath to be

put in so people can safely walk

past or through the car park,” said

Mrs Tobbell.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas, said

there have been two minor injury

and two non-injury crashes involving

vehicles in the vicinity of the

exit/entrance onto Barrington St in

the five-year period 2011 to 2015.

There have been no reported

crashes in the system for 2016.

think the right-hand turn out

of Barrington shopping centre

is dangerous? What is the

solution? Email your views to

Cylinder corrosion cause sought

In Brief

BASKETBALL COURT LIGHTS

• By Tom Doudney

ONGOING PROBLEM: Cashmere resident Dean Johnston

with a corroded element from his hot water cylinder. ​

HOUSEHOLD WATER

supplies in Cashmere are being

tested in response to claims

that something in the water

is behind a series of hot water

cylinder failures.

The city council has previously

asserted that the water

supply is not the problem.

Head of three waters and

waste John Mackie said it was

hoped the testing, which is being

carried out in conjunction

with hot water cylinder suppliers,

would help put people’s

minds at ease.

“What this will do is give hot

water cylinder manufactures

a good understanding of the

water quality which will assist

them when dealing with their

own customers,” Mr Mackie

said.

A number of Cashmere

residents have had issues with

corroded elements having to

be replaced multiple times in

the space of a few years and

the Cashmere Residents’ Association

has been collecting

information on the matter.

The problems have not related

to one particular element type,

supplier or installer, leading

suppliers and plumbers to suggest

something in the water supply

was causing problems.

Mr Mackie said the city

council undertook sampling

of some wells and reservoirs in

the Cashmere area in mid-June

and the results hadn’t shown

anything to be concerned

about.

At a meeting with residents

and hot water cylinder suppliers

Superheat and Rheem,

city council staff were asked if

further sampling could be done

at residential properties and

reservoirs. This was due to be

completed by early next month.

“We are expecting the results

will once again be similar to

previous results,” Mr Mackie

said.

Superheat manager Trevor

Edwards said the testing programme

with the city council

was a positive thing.

However, Superheat’s own

testing had shown very high

levels of chlorides, which are

corrosive to stainless steel at

high temperatures, in some

Cashmere residents’ water supplies.

Issues could also be related to

galvanised pipes being replaced

with plastic ones, Mr Edwards

said.

Bowenvale Ave resident Dean

Johnston, who last month replaced

his sixth set of elements

in the last six years, said he

would await the city council’s

testing results with interest.

“We have just invested in

fixing the symptoms ourselves

but it doesn’t fix the cause and

obviously it’s an issue related

to certain types of metals and

something in the water.”

Money from the Spreydon-

Heathcote Community Board’s

discretionary response fund is

expected to go towards installing

lights at Hoon Hay Park so people

can play basketball after dark.

The fund currently has $16,224.19

which the board intends to fully

allocate before October’s local

body elections. If there are no

other applications, all the money is

likely to be put towards the lights.

Hoon Hay teenagers have also

been fundraising for the lights.

Anti-fluoridation argument

doesn’t ‘hold much water’

Nick King

responds to

last week’s

opinion piece

by John

Verd about

the dangers

of water

fluoridation

in Christchurch

With respect John, I think

your passion for the well-being

of others is admirable but, in this

case, misguided.

To suffer a “toxic dose” of

fluoride, at the current safe and

recommended level you’d have to

guzzle 25 gallons of water. You’d

die from hyperhydration first.

Sola dosis facit venenum – the

dose makes the poison.

You quote Hirzy and Connett

as if that adds weight to the antifluoride

argument.

They are not respected in their

field, nor do they speak for the

(United States) Environmental

Protection Agency. And they’re

at odds with their peers and

mountains of research.

I suspect these “studies” are the

well-known “Chinese studies”,

popular among conspiracy theorists

and widely discredited. Fifty

poor studies versus thousands

of more robust studies does not

make a solid case.

The Chinese studies fail to

acknowledge the higher than recommended

levels of fluoride and

other chemicals (also other factors

that may contribute to lower

IQ), including arsenic and iodine

– iodine being a good example

of “beneficial in small doses,

dangerous in higher doses”.

The dose makes the poison.

Even if it is a by-product of an

industrial process, so what? Lots

of things are. We call it recycling.

It’s safe at the levels required to

be beneficial to teeth.

Sure, it might be classed as

a hazardous product which, of

course, it will be if you’re counting

it by the truck load.

Hydrochloric acid is highly

corrosive, but is also produced

naturally by your own body.

There’s arsenic in rice.

Owner Has Purchased - Must Be Sold!

75 Kidson Terrace, Cashmere

3 2 1 2 2

The dose makes the poison.

I’m all for questioning and

challenging the status-quo –

things go stale if we don’t.

But scaring people with

sciencey-sounding rhetoric isn’t

very helpful, even if your intentions

are good.

I too have my own reservations

about this situation because of

Christchurch’s reputation for

amazing water, and I have an

emotional attachment to that.

But the points you covered just

don’t hold much water (pun

intended) and are potentially

unnecessarily scary for people.

Listing Number: BE192592

Readers respond to last

week’s opinion piece by

John Verd about fluoridated

water

Pam Webber, Middleton

I agree with you. (It’s)

abhorrent that they intend

ruining our beautiful

Christchurch water. Keep up the

good work.

Ian Orchard, Papanui

I won’t be losing sleep

over the possibility of

fluoridated water until I get

some more details which

John Verd omitted from

his soapbox. The somewhat

breathless revelation that

hydrofluorosilicic acid (more

properly Hexafluorosilicic acid)

is a by-product of the fertiliser

industry isn’t particularly

relevant. Like sausages, lots

of ingredients in food come

from pathways that we prefer

not to know about, without

being in any way hazardous.

On the other hand, plenty of

ingredients can be dangerous

in the wrong concentrations.

Sodium chloride and

dihydrogen oxide are two classic

examples. Sodium bicarbonate,

frequently recommended for

tough cleaning jobs, is also an

essential ingredient in cakes.

John makes no mention of the

concentration of fluoride ions in

treated water. The World Health

Organisation recommends

YOUR ONE STOP SHOP FOR ALL

YOUR AUTOMOTIVE NEEDS

SOUTHERN VIEW

1mg/l or one part per million,

hardly a toxic dose for a mineral

that doesn’t accumulate in

the body. It’s much easier to

scaremonger if you leave out

any details that might counter

your beliefs.

Fee, Fendalton

I am very annoyed that

people do not have a choice with

fluoridation. It’s mass poisoning.

I certainly do not want to drink

a neurotoxin everyday. What

about babies and pregnant

mothers? I would have to buy a

special water filter that can get

rid of fluoride. Children who

have rotten teeth are most

likely not drinking water and

consuming too much sugar.

Better to educate than fluoridate.

Daniel Brice, Woolston

I strongly support John

Verd’s article on water

fluoridation. It’s a poison and,

like all things we ingest, it

should be done of our own

hand. I will be doing as much

as possible to stop our precious

water from being tainted with

this chemical and having the

choice taken from me of water I

put into my body.

Heather Sinclair,

Somerfield

I would hate to see

Christchurch water fluoridated.

I would be very concerned

about residents’ health.

Rugby club looks to push

ONE RUGBY club is about to

101,981 push-ups in four hours to

help kick domestic violence into

That’s one push-up for each

Suburbs Rugby Club, which

The event will be held at

Hoon Hay Park on August 28,

with multiple push-up stations

running continuously from 11am

Sponsored participants will

try to top personal targets and

challenge friends, as well as

contribute to the overall goal.

The money raised will support

HELPING HANDS: Earlier this year volunteers helped shift the

Centre’s fundraising effort

reaches halfway mark

• By Caitlin Miles

ROWLEY RESOURCE Centre

is past the halfway mark

towards their goal of raising the

funds to repair their garage.

The centre requires more

room to undertake community

activities, including stone and

wood carving.

Repairs to their garage are expected

to cost between $50,000-

$60,000 and the centre has been

busy fundraising.

They have raised $31,000 so

far and have received a further

$5000 in funding from the

Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board.

The centre also received a

$15,000 grant from the Lottery

Community Facilities Fund.

In November last year, the

centre shifted and, while their

new building could be used, the

garage was damaged.

Rowley Resource Centre

manager Donna McAleer said

they decided the garage needed

to be repaired so they had more

space for activities.

“We do things like stone and

wood carving and we would

like to get a Menz Shed going,

so we need the garage and we

need more space back inside,”

said Ms McAleer.

“We want to have lots of space

and activities available to cater

to different interests for people

in the community,” she said.

The centre plans to celebrate

their 25th birthday next month.

Snowboarding and modelling

Anneke Stewart is an artist who has spent years

travelling and adventure-seeking. Reporter

Annabelle Dick spoke to her about what it was

like growing up on a deer farm, modelling for one

of New Zealand’s biggest designers and how she

impressed some of Europe’s most well-known

graffiti artists

You are an artist by trade, can

you tell me about your art and

your career?

I exhibit at least once or twice

a year, I’m always producing

artwork. I produce in about

10 different mediums quite

prolifically. The style is very much

cohesive throughout my work.

I’m into reclaimed objects

and keeping the integrity of a

material. My approach to what

I do is consciously create and

honour where we come from and

where our materials come from.

I believe we’re here to look after

this beautiful planet. I’m a Reiki

master which is like an energy

healer so I’m very sensitive to

energy and energy patterns.

I love what I do. Art is not

something I do, it’s who I am and

there’s no separation between the

two. It’s like breathing I have to

do it in order to feel normal.

What are you working on at

the moment?

I’m currently working on

more products and print media

on paper so I can make my

work more accessible. I’ve

just completed the largest

commission of my career so

far for the Deloitte building in

the city centre. It’s a lenticular

lightbox which is an animated

3D-type medium so the images

change when you walk past.

I’m trying to keep my fine art

and commercial art separate. On

a weekly basis I do art classes

where I teach a handful of

students – hopefully, by next year

I can have more classes. I want

to start adult classes next month

too. I’m also doing a piece for the

BMX park over in New Brighton

in spring.

HARDFILL

DUMPING

I had an amazing life growing

up on a farm. We spent summers

in the Sounds at our family bach

and in the winter I was always up

at Mt Olympus.

Spending time on the snow was

a big part of my life. I learnt to

ski there at three-years-old and

snowboard at 16.

I actually did my minor

at art school in snowboard

photography just so I could get

up the mountain every week

and justify it. I’ve been really

involved in the early days of the

snowboard industry in New

Zealand. It makes me who I am

and it makes me tick.

Were you ever keen to get into

fashion after growing up with a

mother who’s highly prominent

in the industry?

Fashion isn’t something I’ve

felt a huge desire to get into, I

chose to pursue art which isn’t

highly lucrative but I’m working

on it. I used to model when I was

15 through to about 20 – but it

wasn’t serious at all.

I was just learning to

snowboard when I got the biggest

bruise on my hip. Soon after

that happened I had to fly up to

Auckland for my first advertising

campaign for a New Zealand

designer and it was with Helen

Cherry.

at Elam School of Fine Arts

majoring in sculpture.

What did you do after

studying?

I had been institutionalised my

four-year-old daughter Phoenix.

whole life so I decided to move

overseas where I spent 10 years.

What was it like living

overseas?

I tried to get art-related jobs

but they wouldn’t recognise my

degree there. While I was there I

got very good at graffiti.

My partner of the time was

an aerosol artist so I went out to

do public walls with him quite

often. I was part of a paint jam in

Brighton with about 150 graffiti

artists from all around Europe

and I was one of three girls. They

were watching me paint and

asked me how long I’ve been

doing it . . . it was probably about

my fifth ever piece and they were

really impressed.

After living in the UK I moved

to Morzine, France and I got a job

as a photographer. The first gig

was at the Arctic Circle up the top

of Sweden to an event called The

Battle which is legendary in the

snowboarding world. I ended up

meeting a pro rider from Sweden

and we ended up dating for four

years.

SUNSET: Mandala light box created from an original photo

taken near Shag Rock after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Why did you make the move

back to New Zealand?

After the Sweden saga I

came home. I became unwell

and developed really bad

endometriosis.

I was close to being booked in

to get surgery but I wanted time

to get my body strong so I moved

to Wanaka. Being a Reiki master

I was aware that what was going

on could be fixed holistically. I

worked with a natural healer and

nutritionist for a year and I got

rid of it completely without any

surgery.

You got engaged earlier this

year, how did you meet you

partner?

When I moved to Wanaka I

met my partner Anthony who’s a

builder. We lived in Wanaka for a

couple of years before moving to

Leeston, then to the high country

and now we’re in Sumner. We

have two kids together – Phoenix

who’s four and Knox who is twoand-a-half.

After the endometriosis I was

told I wouldn’t be able to conceive

children easily so my children are

miracles. He’s from the Taranaki

so he’s a North Island boy but

I managed to move him down

here because I’m a hardcore

Cantabrian.

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is

almost complete and will finish in December.

Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• The Durham Street overbridge repairs in Sydenham are scheduled to be

completed this month.

• Our work in Hoon Hay is now winding up.

• Repairs to the wastewater network in Spreydon are now complete.

• Fresh water, storm water and wastewater repairs in Cashmere are three-quarters of the

way through and are due to finish next month.

• Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

SCHOOLS

ADDINGTON PRIMARY

School pupils will get a new

school uniform.

Over the following weeks,

new entrant children will

be wearing slightly different

attire.

As a result of re-branding,

the school’s board of trustees

has been working with a new

uniform supplier.

The new kit retains the basic

navy blue base items, but the

school has changed the colour

of its polo shirts from ‘sky blue’

to ‘kelly green’.

The polar fleece jacket has

changed to a half zip and a navy

bucket hat with green under the

brim will also become available

in the future.

All uniform items will have

either an embroidered name

and logo or a logo only.

​The expectation will be that

all students are wearing the new

uniform by the beginning of the

2017 school year.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

eStar working to

attract best IT talent

Nurturing new talent and better

engaging employees will reach new

heights at eStar, as the world class

e-commerce platform and leading

Christchurch tech company strives to

attract the brightest IT professionals.

eStar’s outreach activities look

four to five years ahead, says Chief

Operations Officer Kevin Rowland.

eStar ‘lead team’ staff attend careers

events, visit secondary schools and

recently supported Shadowtech,

with two female employees

mentoring two secondary school girls for a day.

The company is recruiting and will be looking

for new talent at Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Industry Expo on 25 August, having previously

employed Ara graduates (when Ara was CPIT).

Finding the right skills mix for retail IT is

challenging, Rowland says. With around 70

staff, eStar designs and develops the software

that powers the websites and the online retail

systems of retailers including Briscoes and

Country Road.

Technical skills are of course essential, but ‘soft

skills’ such as communication and interaction

can really set candidates apart. “When we

interview I am always looking for personality. We

do a technical test/developer half day immersion

and everybody freaks over the fact that it’s a tech

test, but if you can do what you say on your CV

then it’s not an issue. You’re in a live ‘dev’ room,

with the people you are going to be working

with. I not only encourage people to talk to each

other but it has to happen because that helps me

see what they’re like.

“Most people who work in IT are introverts.

It’s what makes us good programmers; it’s part

of our personality.

“It’s OK if candidates are a bit meek, but I

have to see some kind of spark. I can throw a

stone into Christchurch and find graduates

who can do IT. They have got to have that bit of

enthusiasm.”

To find out more about working for eStar

and other leading Christchurch companies

visit the Ara Industry Expo and Open Day

on 25 August, 2 – 5pm, City Campus and

Woolston Campus, Christchurch.

Health

The age you peak

at everything

EVER HAD the depressing

thought that your best

years are already behind

you?

Fear not, as scientists say

there is always something

better just around the

corner.

Researchers have

analysed a range of studies

that assess physical and

mental traits as people age.

From this, we are able to

chart a timeline of life’s

high points.

And some of the

numbers may surprise

you.

According to scientists,

the age at which you reach

your peak potential to

learn a language is seven,

and your brain processing

power is on top form at 18.

At the carefree age of

23, researchers say both

sexes are likely to be feeling

smug in the life satisfaction

stakes, and you’ll be best

placed to run a marathon

at 28.

Twenty-three is also the

point where the research

says women’s attractiveness

to men peaks.

While some of the peak

ages are the same for men

and women, it’s a different

story when it comes to pay

packets.

Researchers say women

hit their peak salary at 39,

while men are at the top

of their earning potential

at 48.

Both sexes are at their

peak powers for playing

chess at 31, and the

researchers say you’ll be

best at remembering faces

at age 32.

As we rack up birthday

candles, a different set of

skills emerge. If you’re

challenged when it comes

to numbers, it could be

because generally we’re not

at our peak age for maths

ability until we hit 50, and

have the biggest vocabulary

at age 69.

Proving that age is

indeed just a number,

perhaps the most surprising

date on the chart is the

time when we are happiest

with our bodies – which is

74 years old, for both men

and women.

Proven

formula

combats

colds & flu

Research has shown certain herbs and natural

ingredients can dramatically reduce the chances

of succumbing to colds and flu.

One example of a proven formula is Go

Healthy ‘Go Vir-Defence’. Due to the high

potency extracts it contains, one or two capsules

daily are usually sufficient to keep the immune

system at optimum efficiency; however, at the

onset of headaches, sore throat, body aches

etc. the dose should be increased to one or two

capsules up to three times daily.

Go Vir-Defence contains: Olive Leaf Extract

- a popular ingredient used in the treatment of

immune attacks for its strong anti-microbial

properties.

Garlic Extract - effective in combatting

bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the

immune system. Andrographis Extract - has

powerful immune-enhancing properties.

Echinacea Extract - a natural antibiotic and

infection fighter.

Pau D’ Arco Extract - helps enhance the

immune system.

Citrus Bioflavonoids - work with Vitamin

C and support the immune system as well

as strengthening capillaries and reducing

inflammation.

Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that helps

counteract bacteria and viral infections.

Elderberry Extract - provides immune support.

Zinc - an essential mineral for the immune

system and general health.

Essential

nutrients for

health & vitality

After noticing patients were

experiencing gut, bowel and

digestive issues that often led to

more serious chronic health

conditions, two Australian

Naturopaths conducted

extensive research. This

revealed that although

the patients were generally

eating good food, they were not

obtaining all the nutrients required

for good health, with one of the

main problems being the digestive

system.

Also, with the soils crops are

grown in being depleted of many

trace elements and other essential

nutrients, the crops are also

depleted.

If we do not obtain all the

required nutrients, our body will

compensate to some degree, but

a lack of too many nutrients will

eventually lead to health issues.

Knowing this, the naturopaths

developed Vital Greens, a nutrientdense

powdered formula that

provides superior absorption and

comprehensive nutrition.

Vital Greens contains a balanced

blend of nutritionally rich

Father’s Day -

Keep Dad on

his toes

Every three hours a New Zealand man dies from a

preventable disease. Yet most “blokes” wait until

something goes wrong before seeking help!

Men are not as diligent at taking

care of themselves as women,

according to health practitioners

around the world.

So men, what about some

preventative maintenance for

your body, as you would give your

car? And women, let’s try harder

to encourage our men to take care

of themselves. Small lifestyle

changes can prevent or delay the

onset of many health problems.

When diabetes, arthritis or

stiff, aching joints are a problem,

and more time is spent sitting,

it’s important to have an easy and

enjoyable way to remain active.

Participating in sports or not,

watching TV, reading the paper,

or talking on the phone, an

Aircycle circulation booster can

keep you moving while you sit..

Keeping Dad on his toes with

a Father’s Day gift of an Aircycle

will keep his blood pumping,

muscles strong and help relieve

pain.

Davis Cup event returns to Christchurch

The New Zealand Davis

Cup team are heading back to

Christchurch to take on Pakistan in

the Asia-Oceania Group 1 second

round playoff. The Tie is being

held from Friday 16 September to

Sunday 18 September, indoors at

Z Energy Wilding Park.

Kiwi Olympians Michael Venus

and Marcus Daniell ranked 41

and 58 respective in the world

for doubles have been named

alongside Finn Tearney ranked

381, Rubin Statham at 444 in

singles. If Statham takes the court

he will beat Onny Parun’s New

Zealand Davis Cup record of the

most ties played for his country of

25 ties.

It is likely Pakistan will select

their doubles expert Aisam

Qureshi who is 36-years-old and

ranked 48th in doubles. Aqeel

Khan is another likely veteran

who should be selected.

New Zealand lead Pakistan

3-1 in head-to-head clashes. The

last time the two sides clashed it

was a 4-1 win for New Zealand

in Myanmar in 2013 which was

abandoned.

Christchurch has been the home

of Davis Cup ties since 2014, with

a win against Chinese Taipei in

2014 and a close 3-2 loss to India

in the 2015 semi-finals. Tennis

Canterbury is extremely excited

to host yet another Davis Cup tie

for the third consecutive year. This

is a return to the glory days that

has seen Tennis Canterbury host

numerous Davis Cup ties against

some of the superpower of world

tennis.

Z Energy Wilding Park is one

of the oldest sport venues still in

operation in all of Canterbury.

It has played host to Davis

Cup matches as far back as the

1910’s and 20’s. Much like many

of Christchurch’s other most

important sporting facilities

Wilding Park was severely

impacted by the Christchurch

Earthquake impacted in both

September 2009 and February

2010.

The rebuilding process has

been a long one. Mixed emotions

were felt at the demolition of the

iconic Memorial Stands, host to

numerous Davis Cup Tie and other

International Tennis Federation

events. However it was also the first

bit of tangible progress in relation

to the redevelopment of Wilding

Park and proved to generate

some real excitement amongst the

tennis community. Strengthening

work on the facility’s structural

steel and refurbishment of the

administration and function

space erased any signs of the

earthquake damage and provided

the wider community with some

great function space.

The final stage of development

will see the reinstatement of

six additional outdoor courts,

the development of a grassy

embankment for spectator viewing

and social spaces, including a

barbeque area. The facility will

continue to be available to the

local communities, including

school, charitable organisations

and, in some cases, other sports

outside of normal hours. The

final stage of development work

is scheduled to be gin in the

coming month with a completion

date of mid November, just in

time for the Summer of Tennis.

This development will allow

Canterbury to again host National

Age Group events, International

Events and, of course, future

Summer Davis Cup ties.

This year’s Davis Cup tie is a

three day event. Two singles will

be played on Friday, doubles on

Saturday and the two reverse

singles on Sunday. Matches are

the best of five sets. Tickets and

Corporate Boxes are available.

Please go to www.tennis.kiwi for

further information and pricing.

Like you, we love to serve.

Tennis Canterbury. You’ve given us a lot of proud moments and in return we

Cantabrian Tennis Player USA Bound

On the 1st June 2016, Jack Tiller

signed a national letter of intent

with Southeastern Oklahoma State

University, located in Durant,

Oklahoma, USA.

From the age of 15 Jack’s overall

goal in tennis was to gain a

scholarship to train, play and study

in the United States of America.

Through taking part in Canterbury

Performance squads since the age of

12, he constantly saw older players

being granted scholarships and

given opportunities to experience

American lifestyle through

tennis while gaining invaluable

experiences. Seeing others excel

in the college tennis system

encouraged him to start

preparation for enrolment in

Fall 2016.

In October of 2015, Jack

got in contact with John

Gardner, the head coach in

the Nelson/Marlborough region

and his company, Inspire Sports.

John’s expertise guided Jack

through a comprehensive checklist

of what he needed to achieve to

reach his ultimate goal of signing

with a college that fitted in well with

what he wanted. John’s personalised

programme was a great help. It

began with initial meetings with

Jack and his father so John could

understand what they were looking

for in a college. John then set out a

‘Plan of attack” on how they would

go about getting a contract. They

began working together through

each stage, which included NCAA

registration, skills video, personal

website, SAT and GPA results and

working through what colleges Jack

wanted to contact. Jack believes that

it would not have been possible for

him to work through everything

that needed to be done without

John’s outstanding expertise and

knowledge. Jack found John’s

attention to detail and reliability to

be outstanding.

Jack began talks with the coach

from Southeastern Oklahoma State

University in March of this year. The

coach expressed his interest in Jack

joining the college team and, after

talking through email, the college

made an offer for Jack to attend

their college and become part of the

Savage Storm athletic family. After

the initial paper work, Jack signed a

national letter of intent, committing

Jack to attending the university.

Through his years of training,

Jack’s ultimate goal was to get to

university. Jack is a self-professed

‘late bloomer’ in tennis. During his

junior years, he describes himself as

a mediocre player who was always

outside the top player category.

Through growth, maturity and the

help of the Canterbury training

programme, he was able to play

smarter tennis and achieve positive

results. Coaching by Alistair Hunt

and Matt Meredith has afforded

Jack the opportunity to learn from

the best and use their expertise on

court, creating a huge advantage.

Jack has represented Canterbury

in multiple ties including

Canterbury vs Marlborough,

City vs Country, Canterbury

team’s event and also the

Canterbury men’s team. In 2015

he won the under 18 Canterbury

Championships, a great result to put

on his college application form.

Jack has always loved the fact that

tennis is mostly an individual sport,

results are based on a player’s own

ability and there are no excuses. Jack

has always enjoyed competing in

Canterbury Interclub representing

his club of Elmwood. He is grateful

to Ashley Forbes for giving him

the opportunity to play top level

tennis in the premiere grade against

great players like James Meredith,

Remi Fennon and other top rated

players in the region. Jack feels that

it through playing top level players

that he has learned the most, even if

it involved losing.

During tennis season, Jack trains

or plays every day of the week. Each

week also includes four sessions of

hitting, two fitness sessions and two

days of interclub matches on the

weekends. During the off season

Jack keeps training with hitting

three days a week and a fitness

session and match play on the

weekends.

Jack chooses to keep his future

goals simple. His immediate goal

is to do the best he can to prepare

for college and to give himself the

best chance of success. For Jack,

this means being fit and healthy,

requiring him to train as well as he

can every time he gets on the court.

Over the long term, Jack plans to

take every opportunity he can at

Southeastern Oklahoma State in

order to reach his full potential

whilst there, not just in tennis, but

also in academic life.

For younger players aspiring to

play college tennis, Jack’s advice is

to never give up. Jack recalls many

moments in his time of playing

tennis when he thought he wasn’t

good enough, or wasn’t able to

compete to his full potential. Not

TENNIS CANTERBURY 2016 / 2017 CALENDAR

being the best player in the region

or the nation is not a problem;

it’s a challenge. By embracing

that challenge, working hard and

training, it is possible to shorten the

gap between the different levels in

order to compete in top level tennis.

Have a goal and go for it!

Jack invites anyone interested in

college tennis to feel free to ask any

questions. He will be happy to try

and answer!

Something for

everyone at Opawa

Tennis Club

The Opawa Tennis Club is situated in

beautiful tree-lined Cholmondeley Ave in

Opawa, across the road from the historic

home and gardens of Risingholme. Its

location makes it a very convenient home

club to tennis players in many areas of South-

East Christchurch, including Lyttelton and

bays, Heathcote, Hillsborough, St Martins,

Opawa, Woolston, Waltham, Linwood and

Charleston.

The Opawa Tennis Club has a long and

eventful history, dating from its establishment

in 1907. Being situated close to the Heathcote

River, the courts and clubhouse suffered

moderate damage in the 2010 earthquakes,

repairs to which have been mostly completed.

The club enjoys six well-positioned courts,

four of which are astroturf and two new

flexipave courts. An elevated clubhouse

provides excellent views over the courts,

where members can watch the play from the

extensive sunny balcony, or socialise postplay

in the comfortable lounge area. The

quiet residential area offers easy parking,

and is close to many bus routes including the

Orbiter.

Whether you are starting out as a beginner,

junior or adult, a keen social player, or

wanting a more competitive challenge,

Opawa can cater for a wide range of player

abilities. We have six senior competitive

interclub teams, and are very excited to have

a team competing in Division One Women

this year.

Also of note, we are very proud of our

several senior members who are still playing

into their eighties, many of whom have been

club members for decades.

We are very fortunate to have our own

professional coach, Sally Moorfield from

‘Red Stripe Tennis’, who has more than 25

years experience in tennis coaching. Sally and

her enthusiastic team of instructors provide

coaching for both juniors and seniors, in

individual or group sessions. They can

guide your child from absolute beginner to

interclub player in one of the approximately

20 junior interclub teams. (The club is lucky

to have a very active, sociable committee that

includes a dedicated junior administrator.)

New players are invited to join in any club

day on a no-obligation free first visit. We are

especially encouraging of adults wanting to

return to tennis after a break.

Players obtain the best value when they join

as full members and purchase a key so they

have use of the club facilities for a full year, or

The 2016-2017 season opens

Have Fun and Get Fit

with Cardio Tennis

Looking for a way to get fit, have fun and

meet new people? Cardio Tennis is a fitness

programme offered at tennis clubs across

Canterbury. Combining the best features of

tennis with cardiovascular exercise, Cardio

Tennis delivers a fun, full-body, calorieburning

aerobic workout ¬– even if you have

never played tennis before.

Cardio Tennis uses low-compression tennis

balls which travel at a slower speed, making

it easier for a beginner to hit the ball. More

advanced players will be challenged by a

range of activities that cater to all skill levels.

Cardio Tennis works by raising participants’

heart rates into their aerobic training zone. At

the beginning of each session, participants

are equipped with heart rate monitors before

exercising to music and using a variety of

modified equipment to elevate the heart

rate. Like interval training, periods of high

intensity are followed by short periods of rest.

Cardio Tennis combines fun with

spectacular success. Women can burn up to

500 calories in a 60 minute workout. Men

can burn up to 800 calories. Cardio Tennis

coaches are Tennis NZ registered and trained

to ensure that participants get a great workout

while improving their tennis skills.

Even if you’re not good at tennis, Cardio

Tennis can provide a fun, social way to keep

fit. Contact Tennis Canterbury to find a

Cardio Tennis programme near you.

the chance to have a hit in a

supportive environment where the

emphasis is on fun, not coaching.

The Community Play program

is conducted in clubs and centres

New Zealand-wide by parents,

club volunteers and NZPTHS

coaches.

Junior Tennis Tournaments

encourage tennis through tournaments

during term time. These tournaments are

advertised and encouraged through the

schools, then organised and run through

Tennis Canterbury. This is an opportunity for

players to try out tennis and to inspire them

to go further.

Tennis Canterbury will host the 16s and

under National Individual and Teams events

in January, with upcoming top NZ talent on

show.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF)

18 and under Junior Event will be held at the

end of January, with outstanding talent from

all over the world competing on our own

courts.

The Tennis Canterbury Open, held at the

end of November, attracts the very best NZ

players, including present and up and coming

Davis Cup / Federation Cup players.

Enjoy watching players in action, from

8-year-old beginners to top NZ and

international players. Mark the dates in your

diary. The tournament office is open during all

tournaments for any questions. Tournament

organisers can be reached at any time.
