The Queensland sporting legend is one of three greats heading to Kingaroy Town Hall for the annual Dinner with the Captains in July.

Hudson, who started her career at 17, was the first woman to play 300 international hockey matches for Australia.

Chappell played 75 tests for Australia and was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2003.
