Liz Watson

Liz Watson (Netball), began playing netball when she was 12, inspired by her mother, and made a number of Victorian representative teams at junior level right up to U21s. She joined the Melbourne Vixens in 2014 and remains at that club to this day, although she missed much of the 2021 Super Netball season with a foot injury.

Watson made her Diamonds debut in 2016 against England and just two years later was awarded Australian netball’s most prestigious award, the Liz Ellis Diamond, for her outstanding efforts running the mid-court. She claimed silver with the Diamonds at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and 2019 World Championships. Watson was named as Australia’s 25th captain in September 2021.

Watson studied health science at La Trobe University and is currently completing a Bachelor of Education (primary) at Deakin University.
