#NETBALLMoJo VIDEO - watch how .@EnglandNetball & @uk_sport are growing netball in Zambia with .@DLewis_Collins

12:00 - International Netball Federation is growing the game in Zambia

12:00

England Netball, INF and UKSport empowering girls and getting ACTIVE with NETBALL in Zambia.

The International Netball Federation (INF), and NWC2019 organisers continue the development of the sport globally, prompting the launch of the legacy netball project; NET2019.

Funded by UK Sport, and delivered by England Netball in partnership with the INF, NET2019 aims to provide coaching advice and facilitated netball sessions to empower women and girls through the power of netball around the world.

In particular, the scheme will place an emphasis on two key territories, Africa and South America – continents where netball is rapidly gaining influence. Predominantly NET2019 will focus its work in Zambia and Argentina. Here it will work with each of the country’s netball associations to develop the provision of netball at grassroots levels, whilst also supporting the development of talent and high performance programmes, which have been proven to raise the profile of the sport within their communities.

#TAKE5 - Mary Waya Feature - @MaryWayaNetball via MoJoAFRICA

13:00 Mara Waya: Malawi Queens Assistant Coach

13:00

Mary Waya (born 25 May 1968) is a Malawian netball player and coach. Waya started playing international-level netball at age 14, and has played in more than 200 representative matches for Malawi. During that time she has competed in two World Netball Championships (1995 and 2007), three Commonwealth Games (1998, 2006 and 2010), and two World Netball Series (2009 and 2010).

Waya came to international prominence during the 2007 World Championships in New Zealand, where the Malawian national team (the "Queens") finished 5th, their highest ever placing. She announced her retirement after the tournament, but returned to international competition the following year. She remains the national team's most high-profile player, and was chosen as the flag bearer for the Malawi team at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

After the 2010 World Series in Liverpool, Waya again announced her retirement from international netball, along with Queens veterans Peace Chawinga-Kalua and Esther Nkhoma. She turned her attention to coaching, and later that year stepped into the role of head coach of the Malawi U-20 netball team.

The Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) held negotiations with the three retired players to try to convince them to return to the Queens. On 15 June 2011, the NAM announced that Waya had agreed to return to the national team, along with Queens veterans Esther Nkhoma and Sylvia Mtetemela; Peace Chawinga-Kalua had earlier signed as assistant coach for the team. Media reports in Malawi indicated that the return of the three veterans players had caused major tension in the Queens squad, which led Waya to withdraw early from the squad's training camp.

In domestic netball, Waya plays for the MTL Queens. She was married to the late Bullets FC player Fumu Ng'oma, before they later separated; Waya and Ng'oma have two sons.

She was named as the coach of the Tanzania National Netball Team in 2012.
