Diamonds ready to shine, again

Champion netballers all, but Netball Australia wants us to appreciate the wider talents of team members who have won nine of 12 world netball championships and are claimed to be one of our most successful sporting teams.

The release of the 2011 media kit, Facets of a Gem, shows there’s more to these girls than just sporting talent.

Released to coincide with the World Netball Championships in Singapore next month, chief executive of Netball Australia, Kate Palmer says the media kit was designed to showcase the personalities and passions of Australia’s netball stars.

“Unearthed from suburban and regional netball centres throughout Australia to showcase their amazing talent at an international level, the Australian Diamonds epitomise the girl next door,” she said.

The next few years promise to be an exciting time for netball in Australia. With the 2014 Commonwealth Games on the horizon, the Diamonds will also have an opportunity to shine on their home stage in Sydney at the 2015 world championships, the first time in Australia since 1991.
