Queens star admits training hitches amid Coronavirus

Lauren Ngwira

England based Malawi national netball team player, Lauren Ngwira, has made a rare admission that it is not easy to follow individual home training amid Covid-19 pandemic.

Ngwira, who was playing for Manchester Thunder in the Vitality Netball Superleague before the 2020 season was cancelled due to the pandemic, said she was struggling to workout at home.

“I know this is my career and I have to work out at home. It is not easy to do that because the season was suspended due to Covid-19. I have to exercise caution though, I can’t be working out very hard as if the season is about to start. Nevertheless, much as it is important keeping fitness I have to be mindful to avoid burnout with unnecessary training,” she said.


The goalkeeper-cum-shooter is among three Queens players plying their trade in the Vitality Netball Superleague. Ngwira, having had stints with Team Northumbria in 2018 and London Pulse last year, joined compatriot Joyce Mvula at Thunder before the 2020 season started.

Another Malawian, Towera Vinkhumbo- Nyirenda also moved to Severn Stars from Kukoma Diamonds.

Meanwhile, Ngwira said they were keeping fingers crossed over deals as discussions were yet to start.


“At the end of the season players are free to move but we have not had discussion yet. As it is, I can’t say much regarding our future,” she said.

Mvula refused to comment on her future, saying it was too early.
