Netball NSW congratulates Cath Cox

Netball NSW would like to congratulate Catherine Cox on a wonderful career, after announcing today she will retire from elite netball at season’s end.

The 37-year-old started her State representative journey in 1992 with the NSW 17/U Team, going on to further Waratah honours with the NSW 19/U Team (1993-94) and NSW Opens (1995-1998).

Cath was a member of the Sydney Swifts in the former National Netball League (1997-1999, 2002-2007) and captained the NSW Swifts in the ANZ Championship for four seasons (2008-2011).

During her time as a Swift, Cath won three National Netball League Premierships (2004, 2006, 2007) and led the team to the inaugural ANZ Championship crown in 2008.

“On behalf of Netball NSW, I would like to congratulate Cath on a magnificent netball career and acknowledge her lasting contribution to netball in both NSW and Australia,” said Netball NSW CEO, Carolyn Campbell.

“Cath was part of a golden era of NSW netball at both state level in the late 90s and as a member of the much-revered Sydney Swifts team who won three National Netball League titles in four years.

“We wish Cath all the best for the remainder of the current ANZ Championship season and with her future endeavours,” concluded Campbell.

Cath will return to Sydney this weekend, when she and her Melbourne Vixens teammates take on the NSW Swifts this Sunday in Round 7 of the ANZ Championship at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.
