Jodi Brown (née Te Huna; born 6 May 1981 in Whanganui, New Zealand)[1] is a New Zealand netball player. She was a member of the New Zealand national netball team from 2002–07, and currently plays in the ANZ Championship for the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic.

Domestic career

In the National Bank Cup, Brown played three years with the Capital Shakers before moving to the Canterbury Flames. In 2004 she represented the Flames making the final. She then moved to the Auckland Diamonds the following year, and then captained the Otago Rebels in 2007.

With the start of the ANZ Championship in 2008, Brown continued with the Canterbury franchise, renamed the "Canterbury Tactix", for the inaugural season,[2] but only played six rounds before she pulled out due to pregnancy.[3] After the 2009 season, Brown switched to the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic.[4]

International career

Brown received her first call-up to the Silver Ferns in 2002, but debuted the following year against Jamaica, and was a member of the team that won the 2003 Netball World Championships. She suffered a left knee injury just days before the Silver Ferns' opening match at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, ruling her out of the competition.[5] Brown stayed in the squad for the 2007 Netball World Championships. Brown pulled out of the Silver Ferns in early 2008 when she became pregnant with her first child.[3]

Personal life

In 2007, Jodi Te Huna married Otago Nuggets basketball player Markham Brown, changing her name to Jodi Brown.[6] She became pregnant with her first child in 2008 and stepped down from competitive netball that year. She returned to the ANZ Championship for the start of the 2009 season.
