Australian netball player Kim Green has announced she will retire at the end of the season after a 17-year professional career.

The 33-year-old, who has collected 74 caps over a seven-year international career with the Aussies, will hang up her dress when the Suncorp Super Netball season ends on September 15. 

Over nearly two decades in the sport, Green's highlights include a Commonwealth Games gold medal in 2014 and two World Cup triumphs in 2011 and 2015.

On her retirement, Green said: "It's been an incredible 17 years playing the game I love at this level and I've loved every minute of it.

"I've made lifelong friends and the times I've spent with teammates, coaches and support staff are memories that will stay with me forever.

"I'm fortunate enough to have exciting projects that I have been helping develop over a number of years within this industry and I am thrilled to now be able to devote my time to growing women's sport across a global community.

"Netball has given me so much and it's now time for me to give back."

There is still a chance she could go out on a high as the Giants are still in with a chance of winning the Super League

But whatever happens in the final month of the season, she will go down as one of Australia's netball greats.
