HARARE – Netball Super League aspirants Zengeza Queens say their confidence has been given a major boost after Hexagon Sports Management came to their aid on Friday.
The sports management company donated bibs and balls to the Chitungizwa-based team.
Zengeza Queens are hoping to finish the season in the top four to win a ticket to compete at the Division One playoffs set for Mbare Netball Complex on November 30.
Club director Simon Kadzinga said the team has been making major inroads since starting off as a community team last year.
“We realised that most of the players are unemployed so we decided to modernise our activities and that’s when we registered with Zimbabwe Netball Association at the beginning of the year,” Kadzinga said.
“We were then given the right to play in Division One. It’s been an amazing year for us because we are now on the verge of going to the play-offs were will be contesting for a chance for promotion into the Super League.
“This donation by Hexagon will go a long way not only in equipping us but in lifting our spirits in these difficult times. As you know netball is game that is not given much prominence,” he said.
The team is also home to Stuart Murisa’s mother Glady’s whose work rate belies her age.
The now 56-year-old former St Marys player is hoping to make an impression at the playoffs where she hopes a chance to coach a team will present itself.
“I hope we make it to the play offs and maybe I might just be spotted so I get a team to coach,” she said.
