Surrey Storm are thrilled to announce the return of Sophia Candappa for the upcoming 2022 Superleague campaign.

Candappa returns to Storm for the first time since 2016 where she was part of the team who won the Vitality Netball Superleague.

The 28 year old’s magic would then follow her to Wasps where she would go on to win back to back titles under head coach Tasmin Greenway.

Looking forward to her return, Sophia commented: “I am really excited at the opportunity to return to Storm for the 2022 season.

“I loved my time with the club in 2016 and I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the amazing supporters at SSP again.”

Head Coach Mikki Austin added: “We are thrilled to welcome Sophia back home to Storm.

“Having won the Superleague title here in duck egg blue before and twice more with Wasps, Sophia’s one of the most experienced and renowned midcourters in the league and that was a key part of our recruitment strategy.

“She brings a wealth of leadership as well as a unique skillset and I’m really excited to work with her.”

Candappa pressed pause on her playing career with Wasps after becoming pregnant with her second child.

The wing attack said: “I love being an athlete and mum and I am a big believer in women being able to return to playing professional sport after having children.

“I am fortunate to have an amazing support network and I can’t wait to have my kids and family watching at games next season.”
