Acknowledged by her Pulse peers as their Player of the Year, Claire Kersten caught everyone’s attention in 2017.

On the back of more court time, the rock-solid midcourter had a season to savour, culminating in a Silver Ferns trial and selection in the Silver Ferns Development Squad. Perseverance has paid off for the hard-working Wellington secondary school teacher. Physically and mentally strong, Kersten has a calm demeanour, leads by example through her work ethic and is a senior leader at the Pulse.
