About

Bianca Chatfield holds the distinction of being one of the youngest ever to represent the Australian netball team, making her Test debut as an 18-year-old.

Her 59 Test appearances were spread out over a 13-year career but she was part of Australia’s triumphant 2007 Netball World Cup team and the 2014 Commonwealth Games Gold Medal winning side, where she was joint vice-captain.

Chatfield announced her international retirement following the 2014 Commonwealth Games but played on for another season in the ANZ Championship.

At domestic level, Chatfield played 244 national league matches and was part of four title-winning sides for the Melbourne Phoenix and captained the Melbourne Vixens to ANZ Championship titles in 2009 – along with Sharelle McMahon – and 2014.

She was the first player to reach the 100-game milestone for the Vixens and, at the time she retired, had captained the most matches of any player in the ANZ Championship.
