Windhoek Gymnasium made their presence felt with an impressive display in the first round of the Bank Windhoek Schools Netball Super League last Saturday at the Dr. Lemmer Sports Fields in Rehoboth. The private school won its match against Dr. Lemmer, 70 to 8, and against Windhoek High School, 48 to 16. But Windhoek High still managed to beat Dr Lemmer with an impressive 54 to 16 victory .
Other good performances on the first day of the league were between Tsumeb Gymnasium and El Natan, which the former won 40 to 35 in a close match; Edugate won its match against Keetmanshoop Private School, 26 to 17; and El Natan in turn, beat Edugate, 42:24. Walvis Bay High School played against Keetmanshoop Private School and won the game 21 to 14. All these games were played in Stampriet. Windhoek Afrikaanse Privaatskool and Grootfontein Agri College did not play last weekend, but instead play this weekend.
The next games will be played in Windhoek on Friday, 14 June and Saturday, 15 June.
The Bank Windhoek Schools Netball Super League creates an additional platform for the top netball teams (first teams) to participate and compete in more matches which creates an incentive for schools in the national league to improve their performance. The intention of this league is to develop netball as an important national sport, starting at school level.
The Bank Windhoek Schools Netball Super League is endorsed by the NSSU and as a result, the top eight teams of the NSSU netball league automatically qualify for the Super League.
The winning schools will win netball equipment for their respective schools, sponsored by Bank Windhoek.
