VOL­LEY­BALL - The Swazi­land Na­tional Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (SNVA) will have a tour­na­ment for A teams on the first week­end of Au­gust.

The fol­low­ing week­end of Au­gust will see the B teams have their own tour­na­ment.

This will be the first tour­na­ment for the as­so­ci­a­tion af­ter their dull per­for­mance in the CAVB African Na­tions Re­gional Cham­pi­onships that were held in Mozam­bique last month.

The vol­ley­ball na­tional team played both Botswana and Mozam­bique in the tour­na­ment and the re­sults were not sat­is­fac­tory for the lo­cals.


How­ever, the Best Blocker of the tour­na­ment was Banele Nd­wandwe from Swazi­land.

SNVA Sec­re­tary Afi Dlamini said they have no in­ter­na­tional as­sign­ments lined-up in their cal­en­dar but they have pro­grammes in place for the Swazi­land Olympic and Com­mon­wealth Games As­so­ci­a­tion (SOCGA) four-year plan­ning sponsorship for the ladies to keep them ac­tive and fit.

“The fo­cus is on the SOCGA sponsorship for the ladies and we would be hav­ing as many tour­na­ments as pos­si­ble to keep them ac­tive and fit,” she said.

She said no team has thus far in­di­cated to par­tic­i­pate in the Le­sotho an­nual vol­ley­ball win­ter tour­na­ment sched­uled for 28 July.
