The Barbados national team have selected their athletes to compete in the 2023 Netball World Cup.
Amongst the selected athletes are two Netball Super League icons who have been chosen to fly to Cape Town.
Sasha and Kadeen Corbin have both had standout England Roses and Netball Super League (NSL) careers, with Sasha playing for Saracens Mavericks, (her tenth year in the captaincy role) and Kadeen representing Team Bath this season.
Throughout the 2023 NSL season, Sasha and Kadeen have both worked tirelessly for their teams, with Saracens Mavericks finishing in 5th place and Team Bath in 9th.
Last month, Sasha announced her retirement, with this World Cup being her last time stepping out onto court.
Kadeen had another stellar season with Team Bath in the GA position and finished second with her side at the Fast5 All Stars tournament.
This will be Sasha and Kadeen’s first Netball World Cup, switching nationalities to play for the Barbados side. They face England in their opening game of the tournament on 28 July in Cape Town.
