New sport heads to Central Region


The steering committee for a new sport called gendaball has unveiled plans to hold awareness clinics in the Central Region.

Instructor and committee member, Hamilton Kadyeramwana, said time was ripe for the sport to spread to other regions.

“Of course, we don’t have much capacity but we need to take the sport to the Central Region. People have been calling for this sport and it is fair that we should take it to them. We hope to attract huge crowds as has been the case in Blantyre,” he said.


Kadyeramwana said the committee was working with gendaball’s inventor, Francis Mwalabu, who works at the Malawi Embassy Office in Ethiopia.

“We need to follow guidelines which the inventor set so as to achieve our objectives,” he said.

The sport has been introduced in schools and community centres.


Gendaball is played using a soft ball, slightly bigger than that of cricket. Scoring is done through throwing directly onto a target board comprising 16 holes of varying sizes and values.

The ball is thrown from the playing court comprising 10 throw stations.
