Tippah first played Netball while living in China at the age of 8. Her skills shone brightly while a Boarder at Somerville House. Both Tippah and her sister, Charlotte, were part of the Somerville House team that took out the QGSSSA (Queensland Girls Secondary Schools Sports Association) Premiership in 2016. The following year while in Year 12 Tippah was added to the extended Firebirds squad as a training partner. In 2018 she went on to Captain the Queensland Under 19 team. After two years in the extended team Tippah was named in the Queensland Firebirds team in 2019 but was unfortunately unable to play the season due to a broken foot in pre-season training. While Covid19 placed a threat on what sport would be able to proceed this year we are so pleased to see Tippah realise her potential in 2020.
Congratulations Tippah on your amazing achievements! We look forward to watching your promising career unfold.
