Tippett suffers setback

NSW Swifts shooter Gretel Tippett will miss the start of the 2014 ANZ Championship with a foot injury received in match play.

The Club’s medical staff have indicated the 20-year-old will be sidelined for the next few weeks and will continue to be assessed to manage her return to the court.

The NSW Swifts will look to bring in a replacement player for Sunday’s season opener against West Coast Fever at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.

This injury also means Tippett will miss next month’s 21/U National Championships in Adelaide where she is a Member of the NSW State Team. As yet no decision has been made on a replacement player for this Tournament.
