Taifa Queens

The national netball team, Taifa Queens, have won the IFNA Inter-Continental netball title after defeating Malaysia 45-38 in the final match played in Singapore yesterday.

The Tanzania Netball Association (Chaneta) chairperson, Anna Bayi, said yesterday that her team finished the intercontinental tourney with an unbeaten record.

Bayi said that her team led 25-16 until the breather, noting that the team will return home tomorrow with trophy and individual medals.
The Singapore championship attracted national teams from scores of netball-playing nations across the world.

Tanzania’s inclusion in the Singapore event follows Taifa Queens’ impressive show at the Africa championship recently, where they finished runners-up in the championship held at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam behind Malawi Queens.

They also won a silver medal at the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique.
