The netball fraternity will have a chance to follow Malawi national netball team’s games at the World Fast Five Series in New Zealand courtesy of MultiChoice Malawi which will televise on their Supersport SS 7 and 207 channels.
Superport 5 SS5 and 205 have also channels also been dedicated for repeats of the games.
Multichoice Malawi Marketing Manager Chimwemwe Nyirenda said all the games including the Queens’ would be televised from Saturday toSunday.
“All netball fans will have a chance to watch all these games on Supersport from the first game to the last including all the games for Malawi,” Nyirenda said.
Malawi start the campaign to be played on round robin format with hosts New Zealand in the third game of the tournament at 3:25 pm local time after Australia against Jamaica and England and South Africa games.
The Queens will also return to action after just resting for one and half hours against Jamaica 4:25pm and winds up the day’s assignment with a game against England at 7:40 pm.
On Sunday the Queens start with Australia on the day’s second game at 2:10pm and finish the primary round with a game against South Africa at 4:22pm.
Malawi left on Sunday for the tournament with a depleted squad after the country’s only professional based in New Zealand Mwawi Kumwenda snubbed the call up at pretext of seeking medical attention on her tooth problem in South Africa.
Coach Mary Waya, who downplayed the absence of Mwawi alongside Tina Kamzati and Cecelia Mtukule, appealed to netball players to take pride in offering their labour of love for the country.
“I cannot comment on how the absence of Mwawi including other players would affect the team because I submitted to Netball Association of Malawi a list of 16 players and 13 of those reported,” Waya said.
“So I will do with what I have rather than talking about those who did not want to play for the nation.”
Waya raised the issue amid concerns of unpaid outstanding allowances to the team dating back to two years.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
