Outside of sport and fitness Pippa loves camping, road trips with friends, going to the beach and wakeboarding.

Pippa was a standout talent at the inaugural 2017 AFLW Draft Combine, with the fastest 20 metre sprint time, and in the top results for her impressive standing and running vertical jump. We look forward to seeing Pippa make another big impact at Macquarie University for the 2019 season.
