Bio

The Brisbane Heat’s newest and most exciting signing; Ashleigh Barty is a junior Wimbledon champion who is set to leave her mark on the inaugural WBBL.

A professional Tennis player from the age of 15, Barty made the Women’s doubles final 2013 at Wimbledon as well as in the US and Australian open the same year.

She took an open ended break from Tennis last year and after realising her love of team sport, in July 2015 began training with the Queensland Fire squad.

The Heat signed her after just two games for the Western Suburbs District Cricket Club in Brisbane.  

Barty proved she’s got the goods after scoring an explosive 63 not out from 60 balls against University of Queensland in her second match.

An experimental move that it is expected to pay big dividends for Queensland and Women’s Cricket in general.
