Liz Ellis is regarded by many as one the greatest defenders to play the game.

With three World titles, two Commonwealth Games gold medals, four national league titles and MVP awards with the Sydney Swifts, Ellis retired from the sport having achieved every individual and team accomplishment possible. 

She became the national Captain in 2004 and remains the most capped player in Australian netball history. Ellis retired from the sport at age 34, capping off a remarkable comeback from a knee reconstruction to Captain Australia to the World Championship in 2007. 

In 2008 Netball Australia introduced the `Liz Ellis Diamond’ which is awarded annually to Australia’s most outstanding netballer of the year a fitting honor to Ellis.
