Rawhiti-based codes share upgraded courts
By ANNA PRICE
A $125,000 RESURFACING
project at Rawhiti Domain will
provide a dual-use court for tennis
in summer and netball in winter.
It is part of a bigger vision for
all Rawhiti Domain-based sports
The Rawhiti Community Sports
Inc (RCSI) project to resurface one
of the existing tennis courts in the
domain has created a new netball
court for New Brighton Netball
Club, one of the founding
members of Rawhiti sports clus-
ter.Rawhiti sports board member
Wayne Turner said as well as the
base replacement, synthetic grass,
new fencing and lighting will
make the court suitable for tennis
in summer and netball in winter.
The project has been funded
principally through the Vodafone
Canterbury Foundation and
Fletcher Building Canterbury
Care fund, and from Southern
Support from the Christchurch
City Council, and in particular,
the Burwood-Pegasus Community
Board, allowed this project to be
completed in a reasonable time-
frame, Mr Turner said.
Along with the indoor court in
the bottom level of the existing
New Brighton Rugby Clubrooms,
this is the second visible project
along the pathway of what will
hopefully be a new joint facility
that will be attached to the exist-
ing Rawhiti Golf Club as a base
for all the Rawhiti Domain based
sports clubs, he said.
An application for a lease for
the new building is now under
Meanwhile, the rejuvenated
court will be officially opened on
A netball match between New
Brighton Netball and New
Brighton Rugby will be held
before the official court opening.
Members of the funding
agencies, RCSI founding clubs
and representatives on the
Burwood-Pegasus board will be
present at the opening.

THREE UNIVERSITY re-
searchers say commercial
insurers reacted as well as could
be expected considering the mag-

Dr Charlotte Brown, Dr Erica
Seville, and Dr John Vargo have
headed a research programme
examining businesses and the
insurance industry after the 2010
and 2011 quakes.
They found the insurance
industry had learned a number of
lessons about its policies and
Dr Vargo said the clarity of poli-
cies was a huge factor going for-
ward. Clear and well-defined poli-
cies would help to settle claims
more rapidly, reduce delays and
improves client satisfaction. On
top of this, it would also limit the
loss exposure carried by insurers.
For organisations, the primary
lessons were about understanding
the extent and limitations of their
insurance cover, he said.
Many businesses were under
the impression their policies
would be a fix-all, when in reality
their cover was limited.
They did not fully understand
the limitations of their cover.
Dr Vargo said both businesses
and insurers needed to acknowl-
edge the risks faced today were
ever-increasing and becoming
more complex. To that end,
insurers needed to continually
update their risk management
strategies and businesses needed
to stay educated.
While New Zealand is relatively
well-insured compared to other
countries, businesses still repor-
ted being under-insured and were
frustrated by the slow settlement
Many issues contributed to
delays in claims settlements, cli-
ent frustration and significantly
increased insurers liability.
The number of temporary staff
brought in to deal with claimants
also caused confusion. Some clai-
mants were reportedly seen by up
to 15 different assessors.
There were also reports of
claimant files being lost due to
inadequate information manage-
