Liz Ellis

As one of the country’s highest profile elite athletes and most successful netballers, Liz has accomplished some seriously impressive feats.

She captained both the Australian Netball Team and Sydney Swifts. And even surpassed the record for most test matches played for Australia. Talk about dedication and skill!

Liz’s career highlights are absolutely amazing.

She has earned three World Championship gold medals, two Commonwealth Games gold medals, and four national premierships. And if that’s not enough, she’s been named Australia’s Most Valuable Player FOUR times!

Thanks to Liz’s dedication to netball, the sport has become one of Australia’s most beloved pastimes. She even initiated the Liz Ellis Netball Clinics in 1997, which has coached over 30,000 young netballers.

Liz is a regular on The Project, and has appeared on numerous TV panel, quiz, and chat shows, as well as radio programs as a general sports commentator and presenter. Most recently, she even delved into the mystery of her ancestral past as part of the all-star cast of the new series of “Who Do You Think You Are?”

Not only is Liz an incredible athlete, but she’s also incredibly smart – she holds an Arts/Law degree from Macquarie University and has served on various boards including the NSW Institute of Sport, The Australian Sports Commission, and Players Voice.
