A few days after returning from Zambia, Lilongwe-based, Brave Hearts, have disclosed that they will invite a Zambian team next month.
The tournament will involve eight men’s and four women’s basketball teams plus a guest team from Zambia.
The invitation is a direct response to a gesture shown by Basketball Association of Zambia when it invited the Lilongwe team to a tournament in Lusaka last weekend.
Brave Hearts Managing Director, Griffin Kalua, yesterday confirmed that his sister companies G.Y Imports and Exports and Dr Print will sponsor the forthcoming competition.
“As Brave Hearts, we have a men’s team and a ladies’ team, so we will feature a men’s and a ladies team in the tournament. Our expectation is that the tournament will be the best ever in Malawi,” Kalua said.
During the Zambia tour, Brave Hearts registered mixed fortunes, losing 61-56 to Zambian opponents, Munali Sons, before beating Rapid Bulls 67-42 in their last game.
Kalua also described the Zambia tour as a learning curve.
Early this year, Brave Hearts also participated in a tournament in Tanzania. During their launch last year, Hearts also hosted two Tanzania teams.
The team’s trip to Zambia was fully-funded by Dr Print who are printing experts as well as G.Y Imports and Exports, who are dealers in ICT equipment, furniture, stationery and other domestic appliances.
