What is Paige Hadley’s favourite netball moment of 2012?

“2012 has been such a massive year for me, I have few favourite moments to share…

The first is making my debut with the NSW Swifts as a temporary replacement player against the Adelaide Thunderbirds in Round One.  I loved the experience so much – it was insane to play in front of a huge crowd and the experience was just so surreal.

And then, to get a contract to run out with the Swifts for the 2013 ANZ Championship just puts a cherry on top!

My next ‘favourite moment’ was playing for the Australian 21/U Team against the Jamaican 21/U Team in Kingston, Jamaica.  The crowd was so loud – there were drums banging, spectators doing Gangnam Style; the whole stadium was going off!  It was an amazing experience and something I will cherish for years to come.

It has been a great year.”
