Sara Bayman: “Whether it’s on court or off court, we have to keep improving”
2021 sees Sara Bayman embarking on her third season as Director of Netball of Loughborough Lightning. The former Vitality Rose steered Lightning to the 2019 Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) semi-finals before her second year in charge was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Reflecting on her journey, it was another former England international who had Bayman considering the transition into a coaching role.
