The Central Pulse are a New Zealand netball team based in Wellington that compete in the ANZ Premiership.

The team represent regions from the Lower North Island.Team Members Show Thumbs Cutouts Renders
In 2018 the Pulse are coached by Yvette McCausland-Durie, who also coached the Pulse for three years in the ANZ Championship. Former Silver Ferns captain Sandra Edge is the team's assistant coach, with current Silver Ferns vice captain Katrina Rore as captain. Home games are usually played at TSB Arena in Wellington, although some games are played in Napier, Palmerston North and Porirua. The team uniform is primarily yellow, in line with the Wellington-based Hurricanes rugby union team who play in Super Rugby.
The Central Pulse have struggled since their inaugural season. After their first three seasons the team had only won two matches, finishing in the bottom two placings of the competition each time. The Pulse have gradually improved finishing 8th overall in 2011, 7th in 2012 and their best performance of 5th, missing out on a finals berth only by percentage against New Zealand rivals the Waikato/BOP Magic.

The TSB Bank Arena (formerly known as the Queens Wharf Events Centre) is an indoor arena, located in Wellington, New Zealand.
The arena hosts mainly basketball games and is the home arena for the Century City Saints and part-time home arena of the New Zealand Breakers when they play in Wellington. It is also the home arena for the Richter City Roller Derby which started to play here in the middle of their 2009 season.
It also hosts expositions and conventions like the Armageddon Pulp Expo and the DCM Book Fair. Built in 1995, it originally held 3,635 people. In 2005, the number of seats was upgraded to 4,570 as part of a redevelopment and expansion plan. There were further plans to carry out upgrades to the Events Centre in 2007 although it is unknown if these plans went ahead.
It also operates as a music venue, but does not have ideal acoustics and professional sound treatment; for example, the retractable stadium traps all reflections (early and late) also acting as a bass trap (wanted or unwanted), thus impairing a clear sound, but as a live venue, it is still able attract overseas acts.
In 2005, the annual Montana World of WearableArt Awards Show moved from Nelson to Wellington, to the TSB Bank Arena.
In a feature article from the 11 April 2007 edition of the Dominion Post, the Wellington Architectural Centre rated TSB Arena as Wellington's 2nd worst building. Also in 2007 the first Māori Art Market was held in the arena before moving to the suburban Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua City.
In July 2011 Positively Wellington Venues, an integration between the Wellington Convention Centre and the St James Theatre Trust, began managing this Arena along with five other venues in the capital city. Fanart
