Belle’s a Master of the game

Belle Davis

Belle Davis is looking for another championship at the Hockey Australia Women’s Masters National Championships in Hobart from 7-15 October.

When Belle Davis takes to the field in the Hockey Australia Women’s Masters National Championships this month, she and her Queensland team mates will have one thing one their minds – to wrest back the trophy from New South Wales.

“There’s a strong rivalry between the two states,” said Belle, who is the Maroon’s goal keeper.

“We’ve been runner up the past two years. Last year was so close – 2-1.

“I think this year might be our year. We’ve got a strong team and a core group of us have played together for years, so we know each other well.”

“It’s my last season in this Masters’ Division, so a win would be a nice way to finish.”

Belle, the Team Leader at ACAT at Nundah, has been playing hockey since high school when she first represented Queensland. She’s been a regular State rep in the competitive Masters competition for a decade.

“It can take its toll; I took two years out of the game for both a knee and shoulder reconstruction,” she said.

Belle, who plays for the Gold Coast, represented Australia in 2014 and is keen to wear the green and gold again.

“In club fixtures we [Labrador, Gold Coast] won the premiership in open grade this year, so I’m feeling pretty good,” she said.

And although the golf course beckons, Belle says she will keep playing hockey “until I can’t”.
