Liz Ellis who captained Diamonds to World Cup trophy in 2007 has been elected as the new chair of Netball Australia.

Liz Ellis has been elected only weeks after joining the board. She succeeded Wendy Archer.

Ellis said one of her priorities was continued financial growth.

“It is a huge privilege to lead this great sport which has given me so much in my life and which plays such an important role in the lives of millions of girls and young women,” Ellis said in a statement.

She said Netball is in a “healthy position”

“I am looking forward to working closely with our passionate and experienced board and everyone at Netball Australia to ensure that netball continues to inspire the future generation of players and fans.”

Ellis, 51, who is also a member of the NA and Sports Australia Hall of Fames, has played for the Diamonds between 1993 and 2007 and captained for the last four of those years.

She won World Cup in 2007 with Australia’s netball national team which took place in New Zealand as captain.

After retiring from the game, she joined media as TV commentator to maintain a role in Netball.

In 2020, Ellis chaired the sport’s State of the Game Review.
