Netball Namibia (NN) vice president Rebekka /Goagoses yesterday said they are still working on dates and venues for the play-offs for participation in the MTC Netball Namibia Premier League (NNPL) next season.

/Goagoses, however, assured that the leadership of NN is working around the clock to ensure the play-offs take place soonest, so teams can have surety ahead of next season.

“We have not yet come up with a month and dates, as we are currently having talks with the board members to see which month and dates will be best for the play-offs. But rest assured, the play-offs will indeed take place; there should be no worries about that,” she said.

Fourteen regional teams will compete in the play-offs to select four teams to participate in the premier league next year.

/Goagoses said thus far, only the Khomas, Otjozondjupa and Erongo regions have finalised their leagues.

The four teams that were relegated after the inaugural premier league this year are: Rundu Chiefs, Golden Girls, Dollar Stars, and United 12. 

The Namibia Correctional Services were crowned champions of the maiden premier league, which witnessed some remarkable growth on the side of the players and the overall competitiveness of the teams.

Meanwhile, NN has on the other hand seen on an upward trajectory in terms of hosting international tournaments successfully. The Debmarine Pent Series and the African Netball Championship were both held in Windhoek recently, and saw the Namibian Desert Jewels, consisting of players from the premier league and some regional leagues, giving the visiting countries a good run for their monies. 

The Debmarine Pent Series was won by Uganda, while South Africa won the African Netball Championship.
