Coastal Netball players off to Spar Challenge

Three Netball players from the Erongo region are part of the Namibia’s senior netball side, the Desert Jewels that will leave for Cape Town today to partake in the Spar Challenge from 24-31 March in Cape Town South Africa.

The coastal Netball players, Anna Kaspar and Rachelle Roets received with the rest of the National team their national colours from the Namibia Sports Commission (NSC).
The Debmaine Desert Jewels are joined by the ‘She Cranes’ of Uganda, local sides Proteas U/21 and the SA President Invitational squad and the South African Senior National team.
The Spar Challenge will be played in a bio-bubble.

Desert Jewels Head Coach Julene Meyer said that the team have prepared well and will put up a great show at the competition, as their main aim is to secure a top-10 world ranking through their participation in the Spar Challenge.
Martens said “Debmarine Namibia has been a proud sponsor of Netball Namibia over the past four years and they have proven to be a worthy recipient of our sponsorship.”
Desert Jewels captain Jatjinda ‘Toetsie’ Kambatuku expressed gratitude to Debmarine Namibia for always coming to the team’s rescue when it is most needed and helping to fulfil its purpose.
Airlink, the independent Southern African airline, is supporting Namibia’s “Desert Jewels” national netball squad as its carrier to the 2021 Spar Challenge tournament between South Africa, Uganda and Namibia, in Cape Town, which is key to the team’s eligibility to compete in next year’s Commonwealth Games.
The travelling team is as follows: Jatjinda ‘Toetsie’ Kambatuku, Rachalle Roetz, Anna Kaspar, Monica Gomases, Emmy Kutako, Kathy Mwale, Venyekerera Maharero, Juzelri Garbers, Anna Shipanga, Loide Hanyanya, Ndeshitila Kulaumone and Eve Kamutushi.
