Netball NSW would like to advise Kath Tetley has resigned from her position as General Manager – Marketing, Events and Communications to pursue new interests and challenges.
Having spent the better part of two decades working in the sport, Tetley leaves behind an incredible legacy and lasting respect amongst the Netball community, from grassroots right through to the international stage.
During her time, Tetley has been at the forefront of historical netball moments; from her involvement in the creation – and evolution – of the NSW Swifts since 2007, to the introduction of NSW netball’s second elite team, GIANTS Netball, for 2017.
During the last decade, the NSW Swifts have recorded unprecedented Club Membership growth under her leadership, and in 2017 with the introduction of GIANTS Netball, have more than 4,500 Members engaged between the two NSW Clubs.
Netball NSW CEO Carolyn Campbell paid homage to the outgoing GM, saying her contribution to the sport is invaluable.
“There is no doubt that Kath Tetley is leaving Netball in a far, far better place than when she first became involved,” Campbell said.
“She has been instrumental in the evolution of our sport; from part-time players to what is now considered one of the premier sports in Australia. She has developed and perfected a world-class fan experience at our elite games and NSW competitions, and netball is the better for her creativity.
“Netball wouldn’t be where it is today without the passion and dedication of individuals such as Kath, and I am eternally grateful for her efforts. She will be missed by our community, however we wish Kath all the very best in her future endeavours.”
At the centre of Tetley’s ambitions are the Fans. As a self-confessed sports fan, Tetley is determined to put on a good show and deliver Fans a world-class entertainment experience at every home game, every Club event, and every Netball NSW-run competition.
From putting together an engaging sports presentation package, to creating attractive merchandise items; creating life-long memories and extending the entertainment from the court right out through the front doors of the building – Tetley has earned a reputation as a hard-working, dedicated and creative individual who sets game days alight.
Tetley made her intentions known in January that she would be moving on to pursue her passion and years of expertise in fan engagement, and fan-focused marketing and commercialization in the Australian sporting landscape.
Tetley will conclude her tenure on Wednesday 5 April, and we wish her every success in her future endeavours.
