King's College warmly welcomes new staff member, New Zealand Black Sticks Women captain Anita Punt.

Anita has recently joined King's as Sports Administrator.

Born in Nelson, Anita attended Waimea College then moved to Wellington at 18 years of age to focus on her hockey career with the Capital National Hockey League team.

First selected for the New Zealand Women’s Hockey Team in 2009, Anita has competed in a number of tournaments including the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games. She was also part of the 4th placing at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

In addition to hockey, Anita has a reputation for her speed, being touted as one of the fastest female hockey players in the world.

King's is delighted to have someone with this calibre on board, and we hope she is settling in well.
