Malawi Queens returned home Tuesday afternoon from New Zealand where they participated at the Fast5 World Netball Championship and received a cold reception after finishing last and failed to win any match.

Arriving at 1:27pm through Kamuzu International Airport, the Queens who had an awful performance had the shock of the day when they discovered that there was no official from government, Netball Association of Malawi and Sports Council to welcome them.

As if that was not enough, they had to wait for some hours at the airport for their official bus to come and pick them.

It had to take NAM president Rose Chinunda who travelled with the team to start making transport arrangements.

Despite all these problems, Queens Coach Mary Waya was happy with the team’s performance at Fast5 championship.

“We did our best and the girls performed very well taking into consideration that we only had 10 days of preparations.

“I am also impressed with the performance of the young players who have just joined us,” she said.

Airtel Malawi is the official sponsor of the Queens.

The company’s Public Relations Officer Edith Tsilizani said they are happy with the efforts the girls had at the competition.

“For those who watched the games they really were impressed and as sponsors, we will continue to be there for the Queens when they are in,” she said.

The results will have no effect on the Queens position as they still remain on number five in the world.

His excitement had nothing to do with with Nkhotakota but our National netball team. He asked me if I have been watching the netball tournament in Newzland but unfortunately I didn’t know our girls were competing again in a world tournament. Any way, he said “I love your national netball team because of their free… Read more »
