Wendy Trolove - Chair

A Marlburian at heart, after spending the last 15 years away, it is so nice to be back home! Having grown up playing Netball at Horton Park it is an immense privilege to join the Marlborough Netball Centre Board.

After a number of years working in community sport, most recently for Netball New Zealand, I look forward to being able to share my experiences, knowledge and expertise to ensure that Netball in our community flourishes. It is important that we provide opportunities for the community that are enjoyed, meet the need and are instilling a life-long love for our game, and I look forward to contributing to achieving this.

Outside of Netball, I work for one of the local wine companies as a direct to consumer manager which is an exciting and diverse role. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, heading into the Sounds and am attempting to diversify my sporting abilities by trying to hit a golf ball!

Helen McLauchlan - Deputy Chair

I have lived in Marlborough for just over 6 years, just outside Blenheim where we run our family vineyard.  My husband and I have three children and we are closely involved in our local school community.  As a result I have been either sideline supporter, manager or coach of many junior netball teams.

As a past player and avid netball fan it has been a privilege to further contribute as a board member.  I joined the board in 2020 during the Covid lockdown, which was a time of challenge and change in community sport.  I am proud of the adaptability our netball community showed during this time.

Alongside our vineyard business, I am a Speech Language Therapist and have been in a variety of roles within the health sector in Marlborough.  On the board I have a role on the competition committee and in reviewing complaints/disputes.  I enjoy the opportunity to play a role in supporting our great sport in Marlborough.​​​​​​​

Tēnei aku mihi ki a koutou! I’m Teish, and I have recently moved here from Christchurch to be closer to my family while raising by beautiful one-year old son. As a player, coach and sideline enthusiast, Netball has provided me with incredible opportunities, life lessons, ever lasting friendships and a wonderful community to be part of from the age of 5 – and now, I hope that the time and energy I give back to the sport can contribute to positive experiences and meaningful outcomes within Marlborough Netball.

My professional career after receiving a Bachelor of Commerce Degree has taken me into Human Resources, Organisational Development, and Communications & Engagement within iwi Māori spaces. I am passionate about creating tangible outcomes for the people we work for and with, while enhancing operational processes and inefficiencies.

Outside of netball and sport I love the outdoors, the moana and kai! But, if I’m not on the court or on the sidelines supporting our teams then you will find me chasing after my now very fast toddler, who I hope will love being part of our wider sporting communities just as much as I do.

Mahina Henry-Campbell

Kia Ora!

I have lived in the Wairau region for 8 years now with a large passion for sport and the outdoors.

Netball has been a large part of my sporting career with experience playing, coaching, and umpiring. Giving back into the community is important to me and I always enjoy seeing our Rangatahi and Tamariki being active in our community, through sport.

With my studies being in Sports Management, and my current job with Sport Tasman, I look forward to providing my expertise and background to support a sustainable and forward-thinking netball community.

I have a particular interest in strategic planning and events, and look forward to working with a group of ambitious and intelligent wāhine this season on the board.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends, getting outside and riding horses.
