Building on her repertoire, dynamic young midcourter Maddy Gordon has become a permanent fixture and will be back in Pulse colours for a fifth season in 2023. After making the move to Wellington from Auckland in her first year out of school in 2018, the livewire midcourter quickly found her niche in the Capital where she has gone on to forge an impressive career. A super quick and skillful midcourter with a non-stop engine, Gordon’s all-round credentials enable her to slip comfortably between all three central court positions. Frustrated by a lengthy injury-enforced spell on the sidelines last season, Gordon made a telling and timely return when adding impetus to the Pulse’s run to the title. The midcourt dynamo was quickly elevated to the Silver Ferns squad in 2020-21 and has continued to make her presence felt through her consistently high standards.
