Teenaged Pulse shooter Amelia Walmsley quickly answered the varied challenges of top-flight netball to deliver a captivating breakout season in 2023, resulting in her inclusion in the 2023/24 Silver Ferns squad. Unexpectedly thrust into the starter’s role as the Pulse’s main shooter at the start of the 2023 season, the 1.92m Walmsley grabbed her opportunity with both hands, coming along in leaps and bounds to quickly stamp her mark at the elite level. Coming to the Pulse straight out of Howick College in 2022, the rangy Walmsley has continued to push her credentials while playing every game during the 2023 season. A player with a heap of potential, the long-limbed shooter has improved her footwork and handling skills while height and accuracy under the hoop make her a ready target and valuable asset alongside her rebounding ability. Improved strength and conditioning have allowed the tall shooter to hold her own in the physical battles that unfold in the circle, while the mental component, where her calm demeanour is evident, has played an equally important role.
