Asher Grapes will form part of a versatile midcourt for the Magic in 2021. Grapes, who hails from Hawke’s Bay, was a Hamilton U19 representative in 2019 while also being chosen as a Pathway to Podium athlete. She returns to Hamilton after spending a season with the Mystics, originally as a training partner before being elevated to a fulltime contracted member. A versatile player capable of playing goal attack, wing attack and centre, Grapes was used mainly in a shooting role for the Mystics but will ply her trade from the midcourt with the Magic. A deceptive player with strong ball and movement skills, Grapes has good vison and with it the ability to set up the attacking end of the court.
