Three former Silver Ferns are calling time on their netball careers.
Maree Bowden and Anna Galvan will play their final games this weekend for the Tactix, when they take on the Thunderbirds in the ANZ Championship.
Veteran defender Sheryl Scanlan has also announced her retirement after a string of injuries, having not played for the Steel for a month.
Galvan has been turning out in Canterbury colours since her mid teens, and the 33-year-old says it'll be hard to walk away.
"Mixed emotions, on one hand it's exciting because the next chapter in my life can begin and on the other hand it is a bit emotional."
Both the Steel and Tactix are trying to avoid the wooden spoon, in 9th and 10th places respectively heading into the final round.
