Trio of Bath netballers selected for World University Championships

Three University of Bath students have been named in the Great Britain team to compete at the first World University Netball Championships.

Kadeen Corbin, Yasmin Parsons and Mia Ritchie are members of the 12-strong Great Britain squad for the inaugural championships, which take place in South Africa at the beginning of July.

The trio are Sports Performance students and were members of the University of Bath team that won the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Championships this year for the first time for four years.

They are also members of Team Bath’s 2012 Fiat Netball Superleague squad.

Kadeen, Yamsin and Mia will each receive support from the Alumni Elite Athlete Fund, made possible by donations from University of Bath graduates, to help with the costs of competing at the championships.

Kadeen and Mia are senior England internationals and Yasmin has captained England at Under-21 level.  Kadeen is a shooter, with Mia and Yasmin both playing in mid court.

It’s the first time there has been a British national team since a UK Select team was put together to play New Zealand in 1995.

The inaugural World University Netball Championships take place in Cape Town from 2 to 7 July.
