One of Australia's most recognised sportswomen, Sharelle McMahon appeals to a range of audiences and is an enthralling and motivating speaker.
First playing netball at the age of seven in a team coached by her mother, Sharelle debuted in the Australian Under-21 team in 1996 against Jamaica following a run of spectacular performances in the Victorian Under-21 team and has gone on to play for and captain Australia more than 100 times.
A three-time Commonwealth Games medallist (including two Gold) and a five-time Commonwealth Bank Trophy winner, Sharelle captained the Australian Netball team in her fourth Commonwealth Games in Delhi in 2010.
Sharelle played for the Melbourne Phoenix for 11 seasons (four as captain), and has played and captained the Melbourne Vixens since their inaugural season in 2008. Sharelle led the Vixens to their first ever ANZ Championship over the Adelaide Thunderbirds in 2009. This exciting championship win was topped off with a best on court award and the Vixens best and fairest award for Sharelle.
At either Goal Attack or Goal Shooter, Sharelle is ruthless on the court and is an exciting player that never ceases to amaze. While 2008 was hampered by a frustrating knee injury, in 2009 Sharelle returned to her original, agile form for the Vixens.
Available for keynote speaking engagements and as member of sports panels, Sharelle has much experience to draw on and is an engaging and enlightening speaker.
Off-court, Sharelle has been part of marketing campaigns as an Ambassador for several major brands including Holden and ANZ. She has also impressed with her work in the media, particularly as part of OneHD's coverage of the ANZ Championship.
