Biography

Liz Ellis is one of Australia's most successful Netballers ever. Until her retirement at the end of last year, she was the captain of both the Australian Netball Team and the Sydney TAB Swifts. Liz has surpassed the record for most test matches played for Australia.

Liz's career highlights include three World Championships, two Commonwealth Games Gold Medals and four National Premierships, as well as being named Australia's Most Valuable Netballer on four occasions.

Netball has become one of Australia's most played sports and Liz has helped increase the game's profile through her on-court talent and off-court drive and passion. In 1997, Liz initiated the Liz Ellis Netball Clinics, which coach more than 2000 young netballers every year. It is this enthusiasm for promoting netball that has made Liz a positive role model for young sportspeople and it's not surprising she was voted Fave Female Sports Star for the 2006 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

As well as being one of the country's highest profile elite athletes, Liz Ellis is also a highly sought after speaker and broadcaster. She has appeared on numerous television and radio programs as a general sports commentator and presenter which has included working on the 2000 and 2004 Olympics and 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Liz has contributed to The Australian and Australian Netballer Magazine and written two netball related books Playing the Game and Netball Heroes.

Liz is in high demand as a motivating and entertaining guest speaker. Her achievements, strategies and philosophies on life are inspiring to hear.
