Net­ball games re­sume

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

AC­TION in the Bu­l­awayo Net­ball League will re­sume on Septem­ber 17 after a month-long mid­sea­son break that paved way for the Na­tional Youth Games in Chin­hoyi.

Bu­l­awayo Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Nozipho Mpofu said some play­ers from the league were rep­re­sent­ing the province in the Na­tional Youth Games, hence they were forced to go for a break.

“We are ex­pect­ing the league to re­sume on Septem­ber 17 since the break was meant to pave way for the Na­tional Youth Games.

“Now that the games are over, we are look­ing for­ward to a more com­pet­i­tive sea­son,” Mpofu said.

How­ever, the net­ball sea­son will be pre­ceded by a pre-sea­son tour­na­ment to be held at White City Sta­dium this week­end and all Bu­l­awayo net­ball teams are ex­pected to take part in the tour­na­ment.

The com­pe­ti­tion is meant to pre­pare teams for the com­ing sea­son and en­able play­ers to get to­gether.

This year’s tour­na­ment is also likely to fea­ture teams from the Bu­l­awayo Chris­tian League (BCL), who have shown an in­ter­est.

Mpofu said the in­volve­ment of BCL teams and others from out­side Bu­l­awayo that had ex­pressed a keen in­ter­est would make the pre-sea­son tour­ney more com­pet­i­tive — @khumza­llen.
