Malawi’s netball star, Mwawi Kumwenda, has said her signing for Melbourne Vixens in Australia, is a milestone in her career.
Kumwenda told The Daily Times on Monday that she was ready for the new challenge in Australia, having left New Zealand’s Mainland Tactix.
“This is a dream come true as I have always wanted to play for an Australian team because competition there is great as compared to New Zealand. So, I believe this is an opportunity to showcase my talent and continue scaling greater heights,” she said.
The former Escom Sisters’ shooter joined the New Zealand side in 2014 before receiving an offer from Vixens last month.
“Vixens are the champions of the Australia Netball League. At Tactix, we finished the league on position eight and it sounds good to be associated with the champions,” she added.
Mwawi expects to start playing for the new team in November when the league starts.
The towering player is in the country in anticipation of Malawi Queens’ preparations for the Fast5 World Netball Series to be played at Hisense Arena, Melbourne in Australia from October 29 to 30.
Mwawi, however, refused to comment on what advice she can give to the Queens’ Coach, Griffin Saenda, to ensure that they build a strong team.
“We are not in camp yet. I do not know the players that have been selected in the squad and their standard of play, therefore, I don’t want to give a comment on something that I have less information on,” she added.
