After a disappointing first ANZ Championship season, the Mystics are shaping as a clear and present danger to all five teams that finished ahead of them in 2008. The influence of a new coach, Te Aroha Keenan, and the results of a rigorous training programme were evident at the 2009 Queenstown Pre-Season tournament where Mystics won all four of their games, against Steel, Pulse, AIS and Swifts.

Eight players remain from last year’s squad, led by captain Temepara George, two other former Silver Ferns, Vili Davu and Jade Topia, and Cathrine Latu, a Top 10 shooter in 2008 with 86.8% accuracy. They’re joined by experienced English shooter Pamela Cookey, midcourter Keshia Grant (from Magic), and two defenders, former Silver Fern Debbie White (from Steel) and former Northern Force player Finau Pulu.

The team received a significant boost less than two weeks before the start of Season 2, when the Trans-Tasman Netball League (TTNL) approved their application for a "special dispensation" for Latu, who has previously represented Samoa, to play in the 2009 ANZ Championship.
