Grace Balsdon

Grace is a strong and commanding full-back with real presence in the middle of defence.

Recently part of the England squad that won bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Grace has great prowess from penalty corners and provides a real threat from the top of the circle.

A former Kent College pupil, Grace came through the ranks at Canterbury HC's Polo Farm and in 2012 was part of Great Britain’s under-18 team who won a European bronze medal. That same year ​Grace was part of the Saxon Tigers team who won the gold medal in the Great Britain Super League.
