Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) President Rose Chinunda has said Malawi Netball Team (the Queens) will not take part in this year’s Africa Netball Championship to be held in Botswana next month.
Speaking in an interview, Chinunda said the competition is of no use to the Queens as it would be used as qualifier for next year’ world championship which the Queens have already qualified alongside South Africa.
“The Africa Netball Championship would be used to come up with two other teams to qualify for World Netball Championship which we have already qualified.
“With limited resources we decided not to participate because it would not have made any difference”, she said
Chinunda said the association would instead focus on the friendly games the Queens against England in December and Jamaica in May next year.
Malawi netball team reclaimed their fifth position at World level in the just ended Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow.
