A stalwart to Professional Netball, we are very proud that Jodi Brown came on-board as an Otago Community Trust New Zealand Masters Games Ambassador for the 2018 Games.
With a career spanning over 15 years playing top level Netball, Jodi’s career began in Wellington with the Capital Shakers in the Coca Cola Cup, before being sought after by almost every club in the Coca Cola Cup, National Bank Cup, and ANZ Championships over the years. During her career, she had a small hiatus away from Netball while she had two children, before returning to Netball and balancing Motherhood and being a full time netballer. Jodi was part of the World Champion Silver Ferns, who won Gold at the 2003 Netball World Cup in Jamaica.
Following this, she went on to win two Silver medals in later Netball World Cups, as well as finishing her 61-test International Career with a Silver Medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Jodi’s services to Netball were acknowledged with a NZ Order of Merit (NZOM) in the 2016 New Year’s Honours.
Jodi now gives back to the Game through coaching St Hilda’s Collegiate, as well as co-hosting Sky Sports “Netball Zone.” Dunedin is now the place Jodi calls home, where she lives with her husband Markham and their three children.
