MBABANE – “Prepare while others are daydreaming.”

The above quote by William Arthur Ward should have rang in the ears of the Eswatini National Netball Association (ENNA) Managing Committee (MC). This is because the netball national team will go to full-time camp this week, in readiness of the World Cup Qualifiers to be played in Durban, South Africa. This was revealed by ENNA MC Chairperson David Dlamini on Saturday after watching the security forces derby between Correctional and Royal Eswatini Police Service (REPS) netball teams battling for the pole position.

The Correctional side was victorious, as they narrowly beat REPS 43-39 to cement their pole position on the Swaziland Building Society-sponsored Netball League. The game was played at the Lobamba OlympAfrica on Saturday. This game was preceded by a match between Mbabane Raiders and Umbutfo Eswatini Defence Force (UEDF), which the former won 37-36.
Dlamini said they were happy as an association to finish the first round of the league on time to make way for the national team to prepare for the upcoming international assignment. “The standard of the sport is improving since we returned to action and this is giving us hope that we will play well in Durban, as the national team is going to full-time camp next week,” Dlamini said.

He also said they wanted to give the national team ample time to prepare for the games as they wanted to do well in South Africa. He, however, said the national team coaches would be submitting the list of the players to be part of the national team set-up as they were finalising a few logistics after the games on Saturday.
