England netball match against South Africa a sell-out

England's international netball match against South Africa at Bath's Sporting Village is a sell-out. Five members from Team Bath will be playing today.

I can’t wait for it to start. It will be good to put our training into action on the court.

Bath is my home and the crowd here is fantastic. That makes it really special.

The crowd are close to the court and that gives it a great atmosphere. It’s always an honour to captain your country.”

– Pamela Cookey, England captain and Team Bath player

It will be good to get back out there in England colours. Everyone has been training hard and the intensity is good, but we’re all pretty relaxed.

Most of the squad have had some experience of playing in Bath during their careers, so we love playing in front of the amazing crowd here.”

– Serena Guthrie, Team Bath midcourter

The mood in the camp is absolutely fantastic. South Africa are the sort of team that keep you honest, so if you don’t play well they’ll capitalise on it. We want to win it and we want to win it convincingly. We’ll be trying to put out four consistent quarters over three matches.

– Stacey Francis, Defender
