Queens begin Africa Netball Cup campaign


Malawi National Netball Team needs to deliver high-level performance to stand a chance of winning the Africa Netball Championship.

The competition throws-off today in Windhoek, Namibia with Malawi Queens facing Zambia before meeting Botswana tomorrow.

Queens Coach Peace Chawinga- Kaluwa promised to rectify the mistakes which she observed during Pent Series last week when the Queens finished behind Uganda.


“We cannot afford to slip up because it will be difficult to catch up,” she said.

Since 2016, Uganda’s She- Cranes have dominated the continental championship, winning it in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

South Africa’s Spar Proteas won the 2019 edition when the competition was held in Durban.


With that in mind, Chawinga- Kaluwa will look up to her experienced players to end the trophy-less run.

Manchester Thunder shooter Joyce Mvula has been in good form but during most games, she has been starved of service.

In defence, Towera Vinkhumbo- Nyirenda of Strathclyde Sirens has also been outstanding.

The Queens will take on Zimbabwe on Thursday before entertaining rivals South Africa on Friday.

Malawi will continue with the hunt for silverware when they entertain Kenya on Saturday before clashing against the hosts, Namibia, on Sunday.

On Monday the Queens will take on Tanzania, rest on Monday before concluding the campaign with a tie against Uganda on November 16.
