Khayelitsha Netball Union hosted Club Championships for the first time this past weekend.

The 15 clubs that took part belong to the Cape Town Netball Federation and were winners of the leagues in their different unions.

Chairperson of the Khayelitsha Netball Union, Phatheka Mrwebi said the tournament was divided into five divisions which consisted of Super League, First League, A League, B League and C League.

The Super league was won by Survivors Netball Club from Bellville, First league by Thembelihle Netball Club from Mfuleni, A league by Seven Strikers Netball Club from Khayelitsha, B league by Cedar Netball Club from Mitchell’s Plain and C league by Dynamites Netball Club from Khayelitsha. The winning teams will play in Paarl against other teams from that region who won the same championships.

Mrwebi said despite the tournament being a success they faced the challenge of crime which saw other teams not coming because they are scared of the area.

“The tournament was a huge success and no one was affected by the crime which made other teams not to come,” she said.
