Team Bath is a founder member of netball’s national Superleague, having won the title five times since its inception as well as recording a number of top four finishes. Matches are played at the 2000 seat Team Bath Arena with sponsorship from the University of Bath, Sitec, Mogers Drewett and Investigo.
Team Bath seeks to promote and develop performance netball across the South West and West. In 2017 Team Bath has developed a network of academy and hub sites in Bristol, Taunton, Exeter, Truro and Dorset where players aged 15-21 can access top-flight coaching and other support services as they strive to be the best they can be.

The Severn Stars netball Club are a joint venture between the University of Gloucestershire and the University of Worcester and formed part of the expansion of Vitality Netball Superleague in 2017. The Stars finished 8th in their debut season with a win/loss record of 5-13. Now that they have some Superleague experience under their belt, they are hoping to build on last year and have already had a better start making it to the quarter final of this year’s All-Stars Fast 5.
The team is coached by Sam Bird and is made up of both British and international players, with a number of players that represent their country. Due to the strong player pathway programme they are also able to develop young players that feed into the squad.
This season the team will play at the University of Worcester Arena with plans for the team to play between here and a new facility at the University of Gloucestershire the following year.
Season tickets and match day tickets for the 2019 season are on sale now at www.severnstars.co.uk
