The 29 year old former Silver Fern and Tactix foundation player has inked her name with the team for what will be her ninth season in the trans-Tasman competition.

This year's captain says she can't wait for next year and the team feels it has something to prove in 2016.

Thompson is quite unique in that she has played over 100 games for the same ANZ franchise team.

The Mainland Netball CEO Brigit Hearn says they value Thompson's experience and leadership, both on and off the court.

The Tactix have now confirmed seven players on their 2016 roster: Malawian import Mwai Kumwenda, Anna Thompson, Bailey Mes, Nicola Mackle, Gemma Hazeldine, Olivia Coughlan and Zoe Walker.
