Dimond comes from a sporting family in the Illawarra, associated more with New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL). She is the daughter of rugby league international Bobby Dimond, who played for Western Suburbs.[1] Her uncle Peter also played for Australia and Western Suburbs, while her cousin Craig played in the NSWRL, mostly for Cronulla.[2]

While competing on the professional tour in the 1970s, Dimond featured in all four grand slam tournaments.
