Anne Sargeant OAM's Biography

Anne Sargeant OAM is an Australian Netball Sporting Champion having represented Australia for over a decade.  Her leadership skills and talent are a credit to her long career.  Since retirement, Anne has taken on many roles and has channelled her success into corporate speaking, media, radio, ambassador roles and becoming a strong motivator to inspire her audiences. She is ideal for corporate presentations, seminars, award evenings and for formal dinners.

When Anne Sargeant was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 1987, she was only the third netballer to be accorded the honour. For the woman who began her netball career at the age of seven playing with the Forest Club in New South Wales, 'there was not greater honour. To be considered an all-time sporting great and to be counted alongside people you have admired and looked up to all your life is the greatest accolade.

A top rated player, in 1978 Sargeant was selected in the NSW and Australian teams, touring England with the undefeated national squad.

Among many highlights of Anne’s career was a tour of Wales in 1985 when she captained an undefeated Australian side and posted a career personal best of three consecutive 100% shooting games. In that year, she was named the New South Wales Sportswoman of the Year. She was inducted into the NSW Hall of Champions in 1988 and awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia that same year for her service to netball.

After she finished playing and coaching, Sargeant continued to promote the sport as a writer and media comentator. Her talents as a public speaker are well known and recognised when she was awarded the 1992 Communicator of the Year Award by the Public Relations Institute of Australia.

In 2004, Anne was named Sydney's Greatest Ever Netballer and in 2006, Anne was listed in Australia's 101 Best Sports Stars of our Time.
