THE Spar National Netball Championships got under way at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre in Gamalakhe on Monday.

This comes after the South African netball squad hosted Malawi, Zambia and Uganda in the Diamond Challenge in June at the same venue.

The championships are being played according to a new format, with teams representing provinces rather than regions, and North West coach Dorette Badenhorst, was pleased with the way her team started, beating KwaZulu-Natal A2 49-13, and Gauteng 36-26.

In other matches played on day one of the tournament, Free State beat KwaZulu-Natal A1 35-22 and Free State beat Northern Cape 44-11, Western­ Cape A1 beat Northern Cape 32-9, Gauteng beat Western Cape A2 45-12, and Eastern Cape beat Limpopo 36-26. - Supplied
