Gretel Bueta (formerly Gretel Tippett) is an incredible athlete. Since making her WNBL debut in 2010 at the age of 17 she has packed in plenty of highlights. WNBL seasons, 3 Junior World Championships in basketball, and then a switch to Netball. 2013 saw an opportunity to play with the Queensland Firebirds, get selected in the Australian U21 team and then make a move to the NSW Swifts, before eventually returning home to QLD. The Australian Diamonds call up came in the 2018/2019 season which was a peach of a season for Gretel. She was named in the Super Netball team of the year and in 2019 was awarded the Liz Ellis Diamond, the most prestigious annual award in Australian netball, given to the player judged the best in both domestic and international netball throughout the calendar year.
But potentially her greatest highlight was still to come, Gretel married Niko Bueta in 2020 and they welcomed son Bobby into the world in January this year. Gretel is now back on court with an extra little fan cheering on from the stands.
