Sandra Helen Edge, MBE (born 1962), is a former New Zealand netball player. She was noted as the best centre in the world.[1]

She captained the New Zealand under 21 team in 1982, aged 17. She debuted in the Silver Ferns in Melbourne in 1985, against Australia. For the next ten years she played in a record 94 internationals and three world championships; the team won the world title in 1987. She became New Zealand team captain in 1994, and retired in 1995. The team defeated England and South Africa, and came third in the 1995 world championship.[1]

In the 1995 Queen's Birthday Honours, Edge was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire, for services to netball.[2] She was inducted into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame in 2002.[3]
