Police coach, Tshegofatso Monyama became the first coach to break the dominance and also made history by winning the title in his first season.

“I am proud of myself for defeating a team that has been winning the league for six years. I started coaching Police this season and I took it from position four to become champions straight away. Excitement is the order of the day within our camp. To add the cherry on top, I am still 27 years young,” Monyama said.

He said at the beginning of the season the plan was to win the league and make history in the process. He said during the campaign all he knew was that his team was going to be champions.

Monyama said he used Police men’s netball team to train the women’s side as a way of improving their stamina.

“The entire squad played their hearts out, but Fatima Dino (Goal Keeper) and Hildah Binang (Goal Attack) were the pillars. They kept motivating their teammates until the final whistle,” he said.

The women’s team walked away with P35, 000 while their men’s counterparts won the men’s challenge and pocketed P5,000.

Meanwhile, Botswana Netball Association (BONA) president, Malebo Raditladi told Mmegi Sport that

the league went smoothly. 

She said the Top Eight games were played in Orapa and Debswana assisted clubs with accommodation.

“We had to move games from Francistown because the venue did not have water, hence playing in Orapa. Players are back in shape and we want them to continue that way,” Raditladi said.

She added it was now up to the clubs to make sure that players are always active. She said with the inclusion of the men’s league, the situation is expected to be different this year.

“It was a good thing to get back My Spar sponsorship and we hope they come on board again next year,” she said.

Raditladi said the league assisted the association in training national team players because they did not have money to put them in camp. She said the team is preparing to compete in the Diamond Challenge in South Africa.

“The challenge would take us to the World Cup qualifiers scheduled for Lusaka, Zambia in August,” she said.

Raditladi said they want to continue to have matches leading to the National Championship in September.  She said BONA also intends to host the Nations Cup in November, which would attract other countries from the region.
