About

SportsMaiden is a community for sports lovers. I talk anything sport – news, views, random thoughts and profiles. I want you to join the conversation – because I know you have an opinion. And I want to hear it!

SportsMaiden is run by Juanita Maiden. My sporting CV includes frustrated netballer and coach, ex CEO and Board member of a national sporting franchise, wife of a broken down footy player turned professional coach turned sporting administrator, and commercial lawyer with expertise in sports law.

I’ve also enjoyed a weekly guest spot on ABC NQ Grandstand Radio and featured in a few TV interviews in my time. I’ve hosted numerous sporting functions and published a range of sporting print articles. Feel free to get in touch.

A bit more stuff….

Favourite Sports: Netball and Rugby League

On my sporting bucket list: Following the Tour de France (not on a bike) with stops for wine and cheese

Fave sporting experience: Too many to list (there’s a blog coming…!) but it’s between two goose bump moments – being there for Cathy Freeman’s gold medal run at the Sydney Olympics and experiencing the haka before a Bledisloe at Eden Park

Looking forward to in 2016: Rio Summer Olympics and the Qld Firebirds going back to back!
