BASKETBALL action returns to the capital with the inaugural edition of the Harare Basketball Association’s Super Six league that rolls into life at the City Sports Centre on Sunday.
After teams battled it out to make it to the Super 6 last season, the new league is finally here and will tee off at the City Sports Centre on Sunday.
The Super 6 league will feature defending HBA champions Foxes, UZ Stars, Leopards Academy, JBC, Bucks and Harare City Hornets, which took over the Raiders slot after the Dzivararsekwa-based side failed to the affiliate.
The Super 6 will see the teams clashing against every opponent three times per season before a winner can be decided.
JBC will set the ball rolling when they clash with Leopards Academy, followed by UZ Stars up against Hornets, with the last match of the day pitting Foxes and the Bucks.
In the ladies’ league, UZ Sparks take on Greenstar’s, Bunnies are up against Hornets and Vixens battle JBC.
In netball, the Premier Netball League concludes this weekend with matches set for Stoddart Hall in Mbare.
Platinum Queens are undefeated this season and are set to be crowned champions barring any miracles from happening.
Moving onto rugby, the Midlands Province is set to host a memorial Sevens series this coming weekend in honour of the late chairperson of Gweru Sports Club, Munyaradzi Mugabe who was involved in a car accident last month.
Old Miltonians, Warriors Bulldogs and Highlanders will battle it out with select teams in honour of the late rugby administrator.
