There's concern about a drop off of younger volunteers willing to work with the next generation of netball players.

Over four decades Wellington netball coach Bubs Rewiti has coached, mentored and encouraged hundreds of players from under 15s to premier level in the Wellington region.

It's impossible to tally up all the hours she's put into coaching and into administration over the last few decades but we can say for certain that she has made an invaluable contribution to the sport she loves. Bubs does have concerns though - that too few people are prepared to follow in her court shoes and volunteer to coach the next generation of netball players.
