As the race for Central Health Lilongwe and Districts Netball League (LDNL) gather momentum, Civonets are in the driving seat with a two-point lead.
Civonets have 18 points from 10 games, followed by Blue Eagles Sisters on 16 points, collected in nine games.
The Eagles were on bye last weekend. Salima-based soldiers, Mafco, are third with 14 points realised from 10 matches.
The league will be on bye this weekend as teams compete in the Airtel Money regional finals.
According to LDNL Chairperson, Charity Malanga, the teams have stepped up the tempo in the league.
“So far, all the teams have assembled good squads. We are really impressed with the level of the competition in the league,” Malanga said.
Meanwhile, Central Health Limited Medical Director, Dr. Victor Madhlopa, said as sponsors, they have made the league more enjoyable.
“We have tried to bring lots of entertainment activities to encourage more people to watch the games. The idea is to make the community know the players and turn them into real celebrities. For the past weeks, we have been having music before every game, so it has been entertaining and the crowd has improved,” Madhlopa explained on Wednesday.
The sponsorship aims at developing netball, while also promoting awareness about cervical cancer screening and vaccine for girls.
During the games, Central Health disseminates messages of cervical cancer awareness and prevention through the league’s ambassador, Takondwa Lwazi.
