30 netball players called into camp for Commonwealth qualification


Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) has released a list of 30 players to go into camp this evening in readiness for Malawi Netball Queens’ Commonwealth qualification games scheduled to take place in Kampala, Uganda from 24 June to 30 June.

Mwawi Kumwenda to miss tournament

Missing on the list is Tigresses shooter Sindi Simtowe who is expectant.
