Team Bath Netball have a proud history of developing young netballers into Superleague and international players.
That unwavering commitment to helping people achieve their full potential has led to the formation of a new Team Bath Netball Futures Pathway for the 2017-18 season, ensuring that even more talented netballers from across the South West will get access to the Blue and Gold family and learn from our outstanding coaches.
Two Team Bath Netball Academies and three Team Bath Netball Hubs have been set up across the region, allowing 80 aspiring netballers, aged from 14 to 21, to benefit from top-class coaching plus lifestyle and sports science support. This new network is also supported by Netball South West.
