A trailblazer for women’s sport in Australia, Bayliss (nee Craddock) was the first athlete to represent her country in two sports – netball and cricket.
As a cricketer, she played six Tests for Australia between 1948 and 1951 and Bayliss represented her country in 10 international netball Tests.
A notable goal attack, Bayliss was a member of the country’s first ever international tour in 1948 where her Test debut in Dunedin was the second ever international trans-Tasman match played. She captained Australia in 1953.
Bayliss was named in Netball Victoria’s Team of the Century in 2000 and inducted into Netball Australia’s Hall of Fame in 2012.
