< 2010 2012 >

The 2011 Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic season was the fourth year that the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic contested the ANZ Championship, and the thirteenth year of their competitive history. Player signings for the Magic were released on 18 August 2010. Five changes were made to the lineup for the 2011, including the loss of Silver Ferns veteran shooter Jodi Brown; Julianna Naoupu from the Steel and Jamilah Gupwell from the Pulse were brought in as cover in the shooting circle.[1]

Noeline Taurua returned for her ninth year in charge of the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic. She was joined by newly appointed assistant coach Margaret Foster, a former Silver Ferns player and Southern Steel assistant coach.[2] Laura Langman retained her position as captain for the Magic. The 2011 season was also the last year in which Hamilton-based home games were held at the Mystery Creek Events Centre. From 2012, Hamilton games will be transferred to the newly renovated Claudeland Arena in the city centre.[3]

During the 2011 season, the Magic's position as the dominant ANZ Championship franchise in New Zealand was challenged by the Auckland-based Northern Mystics. The Magic finished the round-robin season in second place with a 10–3 win–loss record, which included wins in Australia against the Fever and Thunderbirds. Progressing to the finals stage, the Magic were defeated 50–39 by the Queensland Firebirds in the major semi-final. They hosted the Mystics in the preliminary final, but were defeated 42–43 in a closely fought match, ending their 2011 season in third place.
