BIOGRAPHY

Rhinos Netball NPL Squad 2022: Under-21s

Former clubs: Grangetown Netball Club, Leeds Athletic Netball Club

Attacker Cathy Hewitt is in her first season with Leeds Rhinos Netball’s Under-21 performance squad.

Hewitt started playing netball at Grangetown NC after the club ran a Sunday morning taster for her school. Although she was confused about the footwork rules, she came away from the session knowing she wanted to be a shooter. Joining the club aged seven as a goal attack/wing attack, she went on to play for Leeds Athletic too and has also trialled for England’s performance squads.

One of her favourite netball moments ever was when Helen Housby scored the winning goal in the final of the 2018 Commonwealth Games to help England win the gold medal.

Hewitt is currently studying at the University of Leeds.
