HAZ plays host to inter-provincial tournament


The Hockey Association of Zimbabwe (HAZ) will host the junior Inter-Provincial Championships in Chinhoyi and Bulawayo today and tomorrow.
The girls’ tournament takes place at Lomagundi College while the boys tourney is at Christian Brothers College in Bulawayo. HAZ president, Kays Kanyangarara said this was the first time since 2003 that both the boys and girls tournaments would be held concurrently.
“At the moment Harare, Bulawayo, Masvingo, Manicaland and Midlands have confirmed participation.
“However, Mashonaland Central could not manage to participate because of financial problems,” he said.
“Despite all the problems that we have faced due to the unavailability of venues this competition gives hockey fans something to look forward to,” said Kanyangarara.
The tournaments will be used to select the squad that is expected to participate in a Tri-Nations tournament in Namibia in August.
