The Harry Gwala District netball team will be playing in the finals of the U19 Junior Netball Championships in Pretoria today (Friday).

The opening games of the tournament were played on Monday and the team has performed well, defeating a number of other competing teams to get to the finals.

Harry Gwala District netball team captain Siyasanga Estrice said team players have improved their performance at the champs.

“When the championship started, we were scared but we managed to defend the title,” said Estrice.

On Monday, the team defeated the Mopane District netball team 40-24.

“Our players have not disappointed us throughout the championship.

We are thankful for the support of the Harry Gwala District Municipality and Department of Sports Arts and Culture,” said Harry Gwala District netball coach Simphiwe Cele.

“The team defeated the Johannesburg Metro netball team 40-29 and Royal Bafokeng district 46-35 on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning we also defeated the Buffalo City Metro netball team 49-36,” added Cele.

The team will be returning to the Harry Gwala District after playing in the final.
