The Namibia Defence Force (NDF) ladies team won all its matches at last weekend’s games of the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball Ladies League at the DTS Hall in Windhoek.
The soldiers justified their position as the favourites to win the league by beating SKW 3:1 and Revivals VC (RVC) 3:0.
NDF coach, Joel Matheus said once his side wins the championship, he would like to test his his side with other stiff opponents from other parts of the region.
“First of all, we will become the champion in the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball League, but our plans are to be able to compete at least with teams from other Southern African countries. We are not going to be just satisfied with playing in Namibia,” said Matheus.
Revivals VC (RVC) and Khomas Nampol (KNVC) clashed in what was arguably the best match of the day.
Both teams gave a thrilling performance with equal defence, and spectators applauded the players for their impressive action play.
The last game of the day was played by the ladies of SKW and KNVC.
The newly formed team of SKW is a real international team with players from Angola, Zambia, Jamaica and Namibia with a coach from Zimbabwe. SKW won all three sets.
If the SKW team manage to improve their team play and let all the players take part in the attacks, the team could become a serious opponent to the hotly favoured soldiers.
The Revivals team lacks consistency, because in its first game, it showed great potential, but in the second game, it was a shadow of its former self.
KNVC, who are the current reigning champions, need to work hard to compensate for the departure of three of their best starters.
