Australian Diamonds vice captain Paige Hadley with aspiring young netballers at her recent Netball Clinic at Raymond Terrace.

WORLD Cup-winning Diamonds centre Paige Hadley was a popular figure when she hosted a recent clinic at the Port Stephens Netball Association courts at Raymond Terrace.

The NSW Swifts midcourt ace and Australian vice captain educated the region’s aspiring netballers on the game’s finer points and provided a glimpse into the life of a professional athlete.

Hadley, one of the stars of Australia’s Netball World Cup Final championship triumph over England in Cape Town, South Africa back in August, shared her career highlights and put the juniors through fun drills in a memorable experience for all.

“Paige Hadley is a great role model and inspiration to every young netballer and a top ambassador for the sport,” Port Stephens Netball Association President Jodi Cassar told News Of The Area.

“The girls that participated in her clinic shared a wonderful session with one of the world’s best centres and wing attacks and learnt so much on the day,” Jodi revealed.

“They look up to Paige and had so much fun honing their skills with one of our finest Diamonds players,” she added.
