Malawi national netball team have qualified for Fast 5 Netball World Series after reclaiming position six in the latest International Netball Federation (INF) rankings.
However, there is uncertainty surrounding the staging of the competition this year due to Covid-19 pandemic.
Queens coach, Peace Chawinga-Kaluwa, said Malawi by virtue of being in the top six are one of the teams eligible to compete. The coach called for support if the Queens are to participate in the competition.
“Competing for the championship means preparing well for the championship. The preparation should befit the tournament to be played. With quality players befitting the type of the tournament to be played,” she said.
The Queens having finished with a bronze medal during the 2016 Melbourne, Australia Fast 5 Netball World, must now aim for a better finish.
“In a tournament everyone wants to do better and if the Queens did better before I don’t see why they can go to the tournament without aiming to do even much better. So yes we can do much better,” said the First Choice Tigresses mentor.
In 2016, the Queens finished behind champions New Zealand and second-placed Australia. Malawi are ranked sixth in the World and second in Africa
