THERE was a phenomenal response to the inaugural netball tournament hosted by the KwaDukuza Netball Association at the Melville Ground on Sunday.

President of KwaDukuza Netball, Ivy Khumalo said: “The purpose of Sunday’s tournament was to attract males and females (young and old) to play the game in the hope of affiliating a team in the league which is expected to get underway in May”.

Matches were played on a knockout basis in the females, males and junior ranks with trophies awarded to the winners in each category and medals to the runners-up.

King Shaka proved too strong for their rivals winning the male and female category. Nkobongo Eagles were the bridesmaids in both categories. Shooting Stars had to stave off a late strong challenge to secure a podium finish.

Officials of KwaDukuza Netball Association were indebted to the KwaDukuza Municipality (KDM) for providing transport for all teams to the tournament and the KDM Parks and Graden Services for the erection of portable toilets.

They placed on record their sincere thanks to the Department of Sport and Recreation for the sponsorship of trophies and medals.

Officials of the KwaDukuza Netball Association must be commended on their unselfish service and hard work, including officiating at the matches in ensuring a successful tournament.

Players were urged to stay fit and practise their goal-shooting skills ahead of the league which gets underway next month
