    Netball outfit Chivhu Queens is appealing for sponsorship to enable it to register with the Zimbabwe Netball Association and meet travel and other expenses associated with running the club.
    The Chivhu Queens coach and organiser, Pedzisai Muhenyeri who once doubled up as Chivhu Stars FC manager extended a begging bowl to the corporate world on behalf of the team.
    "Our aim is to register the team and hope to put Chikomba District on the sporting map if we manage to get funding, donations can be in kind like provision of transport for league matches,kit or projects which generate money for the team's upkeep," said Muhenyeri.
    He added that this was a way of empowering the girl child as it helps in keeping them away from delinquencies and also appealed to those interested to join the club to do so as it is open to all. "If we manage to build this team, recognition of
    good players would be easier. For instance in 2014, Talent Madhanga was selected to become a prison officer in Mutare through netball.
    "Our vision is to have several teams of different age groups," he said.
    To register a team in the Division 1 League requires $350 and there are 12 teams with most of them domiciled in Harare.
    Chivhu Queens netball team was formed in 2011 where it won a shield and $400 at the MP Mike Bimha's tournament.
    In 2014 at MP Bimha's tournament again at Garwe Stadium, Chivhu Queens were crowned champions again and walked away $350 richer.
    The team once played teams in Harare in 2015 representing Chikomba District although, they were friendly matches one player was outstanding and as a result was offered a scholarship at Gombodzvanda boarding school.
