Khomas Netball fixtures amended … making way for international engagements
Top of a Page

Eighteen matches in the Khomas Netball League have been brought forward and will be played in a space of a week in order to make way for national and international netball engagements, league leaders said yesterday.

The Super 10, First Division and Second Division matches were initially scheduled to conclude on 30 October, but will now be played over six days from Friday onwards through next week, with the last matches and the awards function scheduled for 16 October.

This change in calendar was necessitated by the Pent Series scheduled for 31 October 2021 to 05 November 2021 in Windhoek, the Africa Netball Championships (09 November 2021 to 16 November 2021 in South Africa), as well as the regional playoffs which will determine the new teams to join the MTC Premier league next season.

Khomas Netball spokesperson Isack Hamata said the executive consulted the clubs, and they responded positively to the amendments. “We all agree that it will be a mammoth task to finish in the coming week, but we are all committed to make it work,” he added. Matches will be played this Friday and Saturday, next Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
