Jo Harten has been named as the fifth player to remain at Giants Netball for season 2022. For all the Suncorp Super Netball signing news, stay up to date with our Off-Season Hub and follow The Inner Sanctum’s netball podcast, Over a Third, on Twitter and Instagram to get the news when it breaks.
After playing what was arguably a career-best season, Jo Harten will remain in orange for the next two years, determined to bring home the club’s inaugural premiership.
At 32-years-of-age Harten took young Sophie Dwyer under her wing, providing mentoring and encouragement to the rising talent, who will also join her again in the upcoming season.
Triumphing under the post, Harten led the team by example this year shooting a total of 525 goals and 57 Super Shots to finish the season first in the league for Super Shot attempts and conversions.
Not just an inspiration to many young netballers around the world, Harten was also the glue that kept the Giants together this year.
Extremely confident in her young team whilst also gracious in defeat, the English international is the embodiment of everything that Giants Netball stands for, so it’s no surprise she jumped at the opportunity to re-sign.
Once again earning the call up to represent the English Roses after being named the Giants Most Valuable Player for 2021, her netball career has absolutely flourished under the guidance of Julie Fitzgerald.

“2021 was an incredible season in many regards and it has definitely ignited the fire in me to be better next year, growing with the amazing young athletes around me.
