Watch the behind-the-scenes action from the Team Bath pre-season photo shoot at The Roman Baths.
Team Bath’s 2012 Fiat Netball Superleague team swapped their Sports Training Village base for one of Bath’s iconic landmarks for their pre-season photoshoot.
The squad assembled at the world-famous Roman Baths, posing on the 2000-year-old pavements beside the steaming pool for the early morning photoshoot at the heart of the city of Bath.
“We’re really grateful for Bath & North East Somerset Council for allowing us to have our photoshoot at the Roman Baths,” said Team Bath head coach Jess Garland.
“The photographs are absolutely stunning as you’d expect for a combination of some truly impressive performance athletes at such a fabulous and evocative setting.”
