Gaby Hochbaum, the honorary secretary of Netball Singapore, was appointed a board member of the International Netball Federation (INF) at its recent congress in Sydney.
The former national captain, who represented Singapore from 1997 to 2003, has since taken up her role as the regional director of INF's board for a four-year term, which started on Aug 18.
She said: "It is a great honour for me to be elected to represent Asia on the INF board. Netball has achieved a much higher level of prominence - regionally and worldwide. The board will be working hard to get the sport to be played more widely."
