WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...
“Pippa Smyth had a standout 2017 NAB AFL Women’s Draft Combine. Ranking in the top ten in five of the six testing events, Smyth’s background as a personal trainer meant she was highly competitive across the endurance and agility trials.”
-Australian Football League
Pippa is a natural born athlete and fitness fanatic, as well as being recently drafted for the GWS Giants she also owns her own personal training business and works as a CrossFit coach.
Pippa plays AFL for her local team, Nelson Bay Marlins in the Black Diamond League, where she was recently awarded Runner Up Best and Fairest for the 2017 season and was also named as the Ruck in Team of the Year.
Pippa started playing AFL 3 years ago but has always loved any type of sport or fitness. She grew up playing netball, touch rugby, Oztag, rugby 7s and the list goes on!
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 a big impact at the GWS Giants in the 2018 season.
