Netball Mainland are delighted to announce the signing of Malawi Queens star goal shooter Mwai Kumwenda to the Tactix roster for the 2014 ANZ Championship season. She is creating history for the African nation, becoming the first player from Malawi to play in the ANZ Championship.

I hope all is going well for you and your Centres, as we wind down (or perhaps you’ve already wound down and now you’re in ‘recovery-mode’) from another busy netball season. Player contracting for the Tactix franchise for the ANZ Championship 2014 is in full swing and we are very excited about the wonderfully talented players we have on our roster so far for next season. Speaking of talented players… South Island Secondary Schools tournament has just started here in Christchurch and I was able to pop along for a look this morning. It is very encouraging to see the huge number of teams competing and talented young players competing.
