Hannah Knights: That Winning Feeling




The last four seasons have ended with Hannah Knights lifting the Superleague trophy – but the taste of success is far from waning for Wasps Netball’s captain.


Before winning back-to-back league titles in Black and Gold, Hannah secured successive championships with Surrey Storm.


A passionate competitor and leader, she has a desire to win and that was her goal when she arrived at Wasps ahead of the 2016 season.


“It was exciting to be part of something new and to come away with two titles is just unbelievable – you can’t look at our first two seasons as anything other than a huge success,” Hannah said.


“I have quite high expectations of myself and go into everything wanting to win.


“Each final with Wasps has been incredibly tight and we haven’t been unbeaten in either season.

We’ve learned from those defeats and that has put us in good stead for the rest of the season.


“Lifting the trophy never gets old, you play the game for moments like that. It’s an honour because

it represents the work of everyone behind the scenes as well.”


Three titles in a row with Wasps would be an unheralded achievement, a feat never achieved in

the 14 Superleague seasons – all of which Hannah has played in.


“A third domestic title would be right up there with everything I’ve done in the game so far.


“Each season is different and comes with its own difficulties and challenges, and we’ll be doing everything we can to be in that final again.


“I’m still learning and improving as a player after 14 years in the game, which is what drives me to keep playing at the top level.
