“I’m thrilled to sign on for another season with Perth,” Kapp said in a statement.
“Winning the title last year in front of the Orange Army was an awesome experience, and something the whole group is incredibly driven to repeat.
“There’s a great blend of youth and experience within the squad, we’ve got an excellent coach in Shelley, and the culture we’ve built together is really strong. I can’t wait to see what we’re able to achieve moving forward.”
Perth Scorchers head coach Shelley Nitschke said: “We’re stoked to have Kappie back. She’s one of the best allrounders in the world and she keeps getting better and better, particularly with her batting.
“She has been around for a while and is incredibly diligent with her preparation, making her such a good role model for those younger players coming through. It’s certainly exciting to have her on our team.”
