She said they are operating the league without a sponsor, and hence there might not be any prize monies at the end of the league.

“We will only award the winners with trophies and medals, but at least we try by all means to use the little the teams pay at the beginning of games to run things,” she said.

Meanwhile, Unam Jaguars lead the First Division rankings, with Civics second and Vixens third.

Nerongo said the Buchters have their own league in the //Karas Region’s Southern Netball Zone, but due to a lack of competitors there they decided to join the CNZ to keep fit by playing among the strongest teams in Namibia.
