Netball selections range from county to national level

Seven Netball players across the Senior School are developing their Netball in the England performance pathway, with two representing Northern Ireland and Wales in an upcoming tournament.

Sylvie and Ada (Year 11) have achieved national selection with Sylvie joining the Northern Ireland and Ada joining the Wales U17 squad, with both girls training and playing regularly in preparation for Netball Europe, an exciting tournament which will see them play against a number of other European teams over the course of four days in Gibraltar in March.

Furthermore, Sylvie and Ada (Year 11), alongside Holly-Claire (Upper Sixth), have been selected into one of Team Bath Netball’s regional hubs. The girls are training weekly with other Team Bath athletes and are developing their skills and understanding in the hope of representing Bath in the National Performance League (NPL) in the future. Ella (Upper Sixth) has been selected for the U19 Cardiff Dragons NPL squad after rigorous trialling and is now training regularly with her squad. She will be facing a number of franchises such as Team Bath in the upcoming League.

Lower down the School, Dior (Year 9) has been selected for the Somerset county team, and Olivia and Ariane (Year 8) are playing in the Somerset Satellite Academy. This is the start of the Netball pathway for these girls and we hope to see them following in the footsteps of the older girls in the years to come.

Mrs Williams, Head of Netball, commented, “I am so pleased that the hard work of these athletes is paying off; they all work hard consistently and have a thirst for developing their skills and understanding. It is exciting to see their various accolades and I hope their fantastic achievements inspire others around them!
