Uganda vs. Zimbabwe - 9pm

Uganda's opening fixture against Zimbabwe at the Africa Netball Championships starting today at Bellville Vellondrome in Cape Town, South Africa has been pushed from 9am to 9pm.
This is because Zimbabwe Gems arrived late yesterday for the games hence a need for resting time.

Meanwhile Tanzania has also pulled out of the competition at the last moment citing lack of finance.
This has resulted to change in the playing format as well.

The games will see seven opponents including South Africa, Malawi, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Kenya compete on a round-robin format instead group stages and play offs as it had earlier been scheduled.
