A great of New South Wales netball, Megan Anderson was the first player to debut for the Australian Diamonds in the 21st Century when she did so on their tour of South Africa in 2000.
A versatile attacker who started her sporting journey at netball festivals in Woy Woy, Anderson played at Wing Attack, Goal Attack and Goal Shooter in her career and was part of the Australian Diamonds team which won silver at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
After a year in Adelaide, Anderson made her name with the Sydney Swifts in the Commonwealth Bank Trophy, who she represented from 1999 to 2007, winning three Premierships in what was a golden era for the club.
Before that she shone at State Level, having represented the NSW 19/U State Team in 1992 and the NSW 21/U Team from 1993-1995.
With the advent of the ANZ Championship in 2008, Anderson decided to ply her trade across the ditch in New Zealand, making the move to the South Island to represent the Southern Steel from 2008 to 2010.
In 2011, Anderson decided to make the move north to Auckland and play her final season of elite netball for the Northern Mystics.
Along the way Anderson also proved herself to be a top-class coach, something which would see her return the Swifts – who had then become the NSW Swifts – as an assistant coach.
Specialising in attack, Anderson was part of the coaching team which led the Swifts to back-to-back ANZ Championship Grand Finals, and she continued in this role after the arrival of Suncorp Super Netball in 2017.
A player, coach and mentor who has delivered success to NSW on and off the court over the past two decades, we were delighted to induct Megan Anderson into the Netball NSW Hall of Fame in 2018.
