Netball Australia is pleased to confirm that Paolina Hunt has been re-elected as Chair of the organisation, with the unanimous support of all Directors at the first Board meeting following last week’s AGM.
Paolina has been a Board member since June 2012 and was first elected as Chair in March 2017.
The Board can now sharpen its focus on the organisation’s long-term growth strategy, including ambitions to defend both its Commonwealth and World Cup gold medal performances, see our elite athletes becoming Australia’s first fully professional female athletes, and strengthen our position as the country’s leading sport for female participation.
Netball has undergone a significant transformation in the past 12 months with the formation of Suncorp Super Netball and the associated broadcast agreement, hosting Australia’s first Fast5 Netball World Series, and new participation offerings such as Fast5 Netball. We look forward to continued innovation and expansion of the game going forward.
