Anna Stembridge

Team Bath’s experienced coaching team is led by former England head coach Anna Stembridge – she spent three successful seasons with the Blue and Gold between 2008 and 2010 before returning as Head Superleague Coach in 2015.

The work of the netball coaching team is backed up by expert support from Team Bath’s Physio and Sport Science Centre and the English Institute of Sport.
