MANZINI – Pool is quickly moving forward with gender balance.

It will no longer be men’s pool leagues and tournaments all the time as the Eswatini Cue Sports Association (ECSA) is leading by example. Already having ladies tournaments and under-17s league in the Manzini Regional Pool Association (MRPA), ECSA anticipates launching a nationwide ladies pool league. “The launch had been expected to take place last Sunday but after some deliberations, it was shifted to this Friday,” an impeccable source said. ECSA Secretary Mbongeni ‘Mdlikiza’ Gamedze confirmed the latest news. “There was a communication breakdown so we had to postpone the launch to this Friday at 2pm at the Police Academy in Matsapha,” Gamedze said.


He said all details would be revealed at the launch as even the ECSA Executive was going there as guests, having appointed various committees including marketing and competitions which all have their roles like scouting for sponsors. The ladies league will enable most of the pool players from most parts of the country to dust their cue sticks and return to playing pool. Eswatini recently revived two senior national teams, the men and ladies which both took part in the All Africa Blackball Championships held in Zambia back in March this year.
Meanwhile, the ladies league launch was a topical point during last weekend’s MRPA/Dixie’s International Pool League games at the Manzini Pool Club, where Manzini Masters took on army team, Phocweni Pool Club.
