An exceptional performance saw Brodie chosen for the Australian over-30s ladies’ side to tour South Africa for the World Series. She spent two weeks with women from all over Australia as they learnt how to play together as a team. Making the finals left Brodie incredibly proud, as did the fact that she was also the only Victorian member.

“My trip was amazing. I played more games than I thought I would and played above my expectations, and I fulfilled a lifelong dream of playing not only for Australia but being able to represent Australia in more than one sport. Although it wasn’t the Olympics, I achieved every realistic goal I had set myself.”

There was a sour note when she returned to Australia, however, and her car was broken into while she was staying with her mother on the Peninsula. Her uniform and equipment from the tour, as well mementos from her trip, were stolen. She has since had a few items returned, but she asks anyone who comes across anything with her surname or initials on them to get in touch. 

“Playing indoor cricket for Australia was a massive privilege but it is a fully self-funded sport, and everything I had that was stolen had to be paid for out of my own pocket. The basic trip and uniform pack was $4500, and there were extra purchases as well. Not only did I work hard to achieve this, I also had to pay for the privilege. And yes, some things are replaceable but the mementos aren’t.”

After reaching the goal she’d pursued for so long, Brodie’s aim now is to encourage more women to get involved in indoor cricket, especially in the 35 and above age group. “It’s great to see more girls playing,” she says.
