Travel Blog: Day 3 – 4 October 2018:

It was a great day with the competition getting intense as we reaching the day of crossings tomorrow – a lot of teams are really bringing their all … We got to observe a lot of games today as we awaited our game which was at 16h00. At 15h15 we started our warm up and it was intense I must say – a great way to get ready for the game … At 16h00 it was time to show we mean business! We were going to face King Cetshwayo! Everyone (spectators) was hyped up for that game. LOL! You could swear it was a final! Both teams came in with their guns blazing but it went down to a team that wanted it more. On our side it was just a matter of keeping consistency and doing exactly what we were told from the bench which we didn’t do and it ended up costing us the game. Nonetheless, both teams played very good netball. Only one game left now before the semis … Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us so far, it’s much appreciated.

Woke up to a very cloudy day and a bit of drizzle. My team was ready to face the 2nd day of the champs … We got to the courts and prepared ourselves before we warmed up for the first game. 08h30 was the start of the first round where we got down to show we mean business going head to head with the hosts Ethekwini A! LOL! Well … things didn’t go down as expected, loosing with a difference of 2 goals … but the boys gave it their all, it was just a matter of keeping consistency from our side. We got to rest for one round and had to face Ekurhuleni in a Gauteng derby. We were well rested and had to make sure we switched our mindsets to positive ones and get into the gist of the game! We played and won but didn’t get to reach our target as instructed. The rain became worse and we had to adjust to the court and unfavourable weather … Round 4 and round 5 had to be moved to tomorrow morning, with round 4 starting at 07h00. Now we have made our way to where we are sleeping. We are gonna have a nice long rest for the day, with coffee in bed, a movie and some game analysis. Do stay tuned for more updates of my travel blog.

It was a nice sunny day. We left our apartment very early in the morning around 7:30am with some positive energy and eager to take to the court at Hoy Park netball courts in Durban. The spirit was high as usual at the courts with some of the KZN teams singing their slogans and other teams joining in … We got down to show we mean business when playing our first game at 09h30 and another one at 16h05 and managed to bag 2 wins from those games! The support has been really amazing so far, from the bench to the spectators and not forgetting my team mates! Tomorrow is a new day and we are playing our first round at 08h30 against the host city Ethekwini A … will see how that one goes 🙂
