Volleyball league gets arena relief


Southern Region Volleyball League (SRVL) can breathe a sigh of relief after securing a three-month deal with Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (Kuhes) Sports Complex to be hosting league games.

According to the agreement, Kuhes will be hosting Hallmark SRVL games for Blantyre and Chiradzulu Zone for free.

The development comes after some games in the K12 million-worth competition were postponed due to heavy rains.


SRVL Chairperson Ambilike Mwaungulu said it was a timely boost to the league in their quest to conclude the season in September.

“Games for Blantyre and Chiradzulu Zone were suspended due to heavy rains in Blantyre and the subsequent failure to book for an indoor court at Kuhes Sports Complex. At that time, the facility was also hosting other activities.

“Now, Blantyre and Chiradzulu Zone has secured slots at Kuhes Complex. So come rain or sunshine, the games are spiking off,” Mwaungulu said.


The agreement will see the league using both indoor and outdoor courts.

Kuhes Sports Complex General Manager George Chitunga said it is their mission to help in development of different sport codes including volleyball.

“It is a short-term partnership that will be reviewed in three months. However, we are delighted that we are contributing to the development of the game,” Chitunga said.

Some weeks ago, teams were forced to try mopping Blantyre Youth Centre court but their efforts did not yield anything.

The competition is running in six zones. At zone level, games are being played on home-and-away basis and the team that accumulates most points will emerge winners for their respective zone.

Top two teams in both ladies and men’s categories will qualify for the regional level and battle on home-and-away basis to determine the champions.
