Team Bath Super League star Jayda Pechova heading back to New Zealand with England for FAST5 Netball World Series

Team Bath Netball’s Jayda Pechova will gain more international experience after being selected to represent the Vitality Roses at the FAST5 Netball World Series in Christchurch, New Zealand from 11-12 November.

It will be a second successive appearance at the tournament for the 19-year-old defender, who competed on the senior international stage for the first time at the 2022 event.

It is also a quick return to New Zealand for Pechova, who made her senior Test debut in last month’s Taini Jamison Trophy series against the Silver Ferns.

Pechova combines her netball career with a Sports Performance foundation degree at the University of Bath, where she is supported by a Trendell Sporting Scholarship.

She is joined in the 10-strong squad by University of Bath alumnae and former Team Bath Super League player Paige Reed.

The FAST5 Netball World Series will see England, who finished fourth last year, will come up against the other sides ranked in the world’s top six nations – New Zealand, Australia, Jamaica, South Africa and Malawi. The teams will go head-to-head in preliminary matches before competing for final placings on the last day.

Tickets are now on sale to see Jayda Pechova and her Team Bath team-mates in Super League action at the Team Bath Arena during the 2024 season – click here for more details.
