Paige Hadley is a specialist wing attack and centre, and one of the most prolific midcourt players in Australian netball. She is Vice-Captain of the NSW Swifts who took out the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball title.
Paige was announced into the Australian Diamonds to compete in the 2019 World Cup where they finished with a silver medal. Hadley made her debut for the Diamonds in 2013 – the same year she was named as the Australian 21/U Player of the Year. In 2014 she became the selection bolter for the 2015 World Cup side, playing an important part in the team successfully defending their world title in
Sydney in 2015.
In 2016, Hadley was awarded the ‘Ian Thorpe Outstanding Achievement’ award at the NSW Institute of Sport annual awards ceremony. Paige also received her second NSW Swifts Coaches Award, having first achieved the honour three years earlier. She repeated that achievement again in 2019. Paige 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.
Paige completed her Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Advanced Business Leadership) studies with the University of Western Sydney. She finished with a Dean’s Medal in 2017.
