Director:

Lisa Mennen (Netball President)

Lisa is a passionate netballer who has been involved in netball and football for well over 15 years. Lisa was a part of the inaugural Gungahlin Jets Netball Club, which started in 2017, as both a player and committee member. This saw the entrance of two Jets teams in the North Canberra Netball Competition. In 2018 she helped expand the netball club to 4 teams, and will steer the ship as Netball President in 2019.

Lisa has also been involved in the football club since 2015 through her partner’s involvement as a senior coach, and in 2016 took on the role as the senior Social Coordinator, overseeing the reform of formal senior Jets events. Lisa continued in this role until the end of the 2018 season.

Her daughter Matilda is a loudly supportive Jet (as only a three year old can be), and can be seen in Jets colours at both the netball and football on any given Saturday.
