Manzomthombo High School in Mfuleni is putting its home on the map as it is going to represent the province at the National Top School Netball Tournament to be held in Gauteng next month.

Both u.16 and u.19 netball teams have become champions under the Inter-Region Top Schools Netball Tournament which was held at Langhoven High School in Riversdale last Saturday.

Frank Xaba, netball coach and educator, said they want to make a history as the best netball team in the country. (“Bring home the trophy”, City Vision, 31 May)

“Next month, we are going to defend the title for the fifth time if we win. We’ve been the national champions four times in a row in both our teams.

And I believe we will win,” says Xaba­.

The tournament will run from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 July.

He says they want to make Manzomthombo High School well-known in the netball field.

However, he reiterated that as a school, they are struggling to get sponsors to support them.

“I am still appealing to the community to assist us, not necessary with cash, even if is a voucher to buy food or pay for accommodation or transport,” he says.

Xaba described Manzomthombo as a no-fee school.

“I will be disappointed if we cannot participate in this upcoming tournament. We worked hard to be where we are.”
