ABOUT SASHA CORBIN
In 2006 Sasha was selected for the High Performance Programme at Team Bath which was led by Lyn Gunson who she describes as a huge inspiration, helping her to believe that she had the potential to be a world-class netballer.
At the age of 15, Sasha had to make a tough choice between her favourite sports athletics and netball. She had the opportunity to go to the U16 Pentathlon trials or go to South Africa on a netball tour led by Team Bath. The option to travel, sealed the deal and after this, Sasha trialled for the England Netball U17 team and was selected for the U19s as GK. At just 16 years old Sasha played in the Florida World Youth Championships, winning a silver medal.
Founder of Solo Sessions, England International and Saracens Mavericks netball player Sasha Corbin grew up in Tottenham, London and wanted to be a professional sportswoman from a young age. However, it wasn't until she was at secondary school that she began to play netball competitively despite having developed a love for the game growing up watching her mum play every week.
Sasha studied Sports Performance at Bath University alongside playing in the Team Bath Superleague team, and was part of a team which won the Superleague three times. Sasha moved back to play for the Mavericks in 2011 and went on to Captain them for four out of the five seasons that she played there, winning another Superleague title along the way.
With 72 England caps to her name, Sasha is one of the few elite sports people that has enjoyed international success alongside her sister, Kadeen. Sasha's career defining year came in 2013, when she became a starting seven player for the England Roses and took a major part in their whitewash win over the World No. 1's Australia. During that year the Roses squad went on to win all but one of their international games and Sasha shone through winning Player of the Series and Player of the Season while the squad was awarded Sky Sports 'Women's Team of the Year'.
OFF COURT & IN THE MEDIA

As a co host for the hit podcast "Netballers' on BBC 5 Live alongside her sister Kadeen Corbin & Betty Glover, Sasha also had a regular spot on the BBC sport punditry team giving her expert analysis on the 2019 Netball World Cup matches.
