Paige Hadley


Recovered from an ACL injury to be the selection bolter for the Diamond's 2015 Netball World Cup gold medal-winning campaign.


Paige Hadley is a specialist wing attack, and one of the most prolific midcourt players in Australian netball.

Hadley debuted for the Australian Diamonds in 2013 – the same year she was named as the Australian 21/U Player of the Year.

She became the selection bolter for the Diamonds following a stunning 2015 ANZ Championship Finals Series, and played an important part in the team successfully defending their world title in Sydney in 2015.

Hadley is Vice-Captain of the NSW Swifts in the Suncorp Super Netball League.

The young Penrith local was unlucky to miss selection for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games; her omission made more difficult having missed the previous edition through injury to her ACL.

Hadley was awarded the Ian Thorpe Outstanding Achievement Award at the NSW Institute of Sport annual awards in 2016, the same year she became Penrith’s Local Woman of the Year.

She is a two-time National Champion, winning the 21/U National Netball Championships as Captain of the 21/U NSW State Team.
