After taking the sporting world by storm, Gold medal winning netballer Bianca Chatfield's journey from professional athlete to leading media personality and business owner is indicative of her vivacious nature, dedication and professionalism across all fields.
Following her debut as an 18 year old for the Australian Diamonds netball team, Bianca quickly established a name for herself as one of the toughest defenders in the sport. During her time on the netball court, Bianca endured some tough times but also enjoyed great success; wining both gold and silver medals at the Commonwealth Games alongside a host of premiership victories and awards. A celebrated athlete and excellent communicator, Bianca fast became one of the prominent voices in Australian netball. Since her retirement from the sport in 2015, Bianca has continued to focus on her growing media presence, pursuing numerous exciting opportunities across television and radio.
Bianca’s passion and advocacy for women in sport led her to write her first book, Game On which expanded into the online mentor program, The Ignition Project. This personal project seeks to empower women to identify their passion and enable them to get the best out of themselves – whether on court or in life!
These days you will find (a very busy!) Bianca in various media and leadership roles. She regularly features on House of Wellness (Ch7), hosts Women’s Footy (ch9) , commentates the Netball (ch9) and talking sport on Offsiders (ABC).
Possessing a wealth of knowledge and expertise across multiple fields, Bianca is also an engaging and sought-after MC, keynote speaker and facilitator.
In 2018 Bianca took a leap of faith out of the sporting world and into reality tv with her friend and former teammate Carla, they teamed up as a dynamic duo on The Block, showcasing their impressive home renovating skills building an apartment in The Gatwick, St.Kilda.
Bianca sits on the Board of The Ready Foundation and was recently appointed as a Board Member to the MCG Trust. Bianca works with a closely considered pool of brands in an Ambassadorship capacity such as, Chemist Warehouse, Victoria University, and Lexus of Berwick.
