Malawi Queens netball team get their England two-match series preparation under way on Monday afternoon after arriving early morning .
The Queens will face England at London Arena on Wednesday December 17 and finally on Saturday December 20 at Worcester Arena.
Under the tutorship of legendary Mary Waya, the Queens Monday after shook off their jet lag when they left their Stratford camping to go to the court for training.
“We are here for serious business. Its proper test matches and pride is at stake, we want to do well against England in the two matches,” said Waya.
“We are taking the matches serious and we will put up a good fight,” she added.
The squad is without Mwai Kumwenda, a trailblazer in Malawi.
As Malawi’s sharp-shooting star player, she made history by becoming the first Queens’ International to earn a contract in the Trans-Tasman ANZ Championship with the Canterbury Tactix.
But Waya said it is a squad that has all it takes to be Africa’s top netball team and strive to break the top world’s four.
The Queens were due to begin a three-match international series against England in Liverpool on Sunday, but failed to receive their visas in time to travel for the fixture.
The first match will be played at London’s Copper Box Arena. There will also be including a celebrity charity match.
The final match will be played on Saturday in Worcester arena. All games will be live on Sky Sports.
