Welcome 2013 NSW Swifts recruit… Paige Hadley

The NSW Swifts welcome two players on their first ANZ Championship contracts in 2013… nswswifts.com.au has already introduced rookie Mel Tallent… and now we have caught up with Paige Hadley, who dropped into SwiftsHQ for a quick chat.

Paige will be a familiar face to many Swifts fans following seven appearances for the club as a temporary replacement player in 2012.

“I learnt so much this year from Kim Green and Vanessa Ware so hopefully I can just keep learning from them… I want to learn as much as I can next season,” Paige said.

When the NSW Swifts play their opening game of the 2013 ANZ Championship on Monday 25 March at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre, Paige will be running out on court in front of friends and family.

“My parents are now 2013 Members… Dad wants to be in the RED ZONE with everyone. Family friends bought memberships as well… so they’ll be there every home game.”

Watch the video to see what Paige had to say about signing with the NSW Swifts when she stopped by SwiftsHQ recently:

It has been a busy year for the midcourter, from representing Penrith in DOOLEYS State League to helping NSW claim a fifth consecutive 21/U National Netball Championship, as well as finishing Runners-Up at the 19/U Nationals… all while being based at Canberra on scholarship with the Australian Institute of Sport.

As well as being named in the Australian 19/U squad, Paige helped the Australian 21/U team claim victory in the International Netball Series in Ballarat, Victoria during August against 21/U teams from New Zealand, England and Samoa.

Next up Paige will travel with her national 21/U teammates for a tour to the Caribbean in November to take on Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, ahead of the World Youth Netball Championship in Glasgow in 2013.
