After a breakout first season at Suncorp Super Netball, Hannah Mundy has signed with the Melbourne Vixens for 2022.

The Melbourne Vixens have announced that up and coming mid-courter Hannah Mundy has signed on with the Vixens for the upcoming season. 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.

Mundy joined the Vixens as a temporary replacement player for co-captain Liz Watson who was ruled out for the season with a foot injury.

She quickly cemented her spot into the starting seven, and played a crucial role in the Vixens front line with Watson out.

Mundy didn’t miss a game for the Vixens in her first season at Super Netball level, having 136 goal assists, five intercepts and 17 deflections. She was often the first choice out of the centre pass when not in centre herself, having 201 centre pass receives for the season.

Melbourne Vixens captain Kate Moloney spoke to The Inner Sanctum on Mundy’s permanent inclusion in the Vixens side.

“One of the biggest positives [of 2021] were the girls that we got out on court, and Hannah Mundy just improved every single week,” Moloney told The Inner Sanctum.

“She’s a great team person, we love her at the Vixens and the great thing was that she listened, she took everything on board and then she went out and put it out on court.

“It’s great to see her development and I can’t wait to see how she continues to grow over the next couple of years.”

“This year was a dream come true, and I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity that the club has given me,” Mundy said.

“I’m really excited to sign on officially and to learn from and play alongside some of the best netballers in the world.

“Liz [Watson] has been a great mentor for me, particularly this year in her leadership role from the sideline. I’m really looking forward to continuing to learn everything I can off her when she’s out on court.”

Mundy’s debut season was recognised by the Vixens after she received the Rookie of the Year award at the Sharelle McMahon Medal presentation. She joins elite company with previous winners including Tegan Philip (nee Caldwell), Watson herself, and Jo Weston.

The Melbourne Vixens roster is starting to take shape with Mundy joining Moloney, Watson, Weston, Emily Mannix and Rahni Samason.

The Vixens will announce their next signing tomorrow.
