Councillor Suzy Batkovic played professional basketball for 23 years in the USA (WNBA), Europe and Australia. She moved to Townsville in 2001 and was part of the inaugural team at the Townsville Fire, WNBL club. Since then, this city has held a special place in her heart.

In 2013, Cr Batkovic moved back to this city and played for the Townsville Fire until her retirement in 2019. She won 5 national championships (3 with Townsville Fire) and represented Australia at 3 Olympics, winning 2 silver medals and one bronze.

Playing professional sport has taught Cr Batkovic about teamwork, leadership, compassion, the importance of listening, how to fight for what’s right, and most importantly what it takes to work together to achieve outcomes.

Cr Batkovic and her partner Dan have twin girls, Layla and Charli. She has lived in Division 6 for the last 9 years and works hard as the Divisional Councillor to make Townsville the best city it can be.

Cr Batkovic is honest and hard-working, listens and represents the needs of the community she serves with the same passion that made her a champion in her sporting career.
