Two of Bela Bela‘s Diesel n Dust Netball Club players have been called up into the Limpopo provincial squad.

Wing attack players, Mapula Hakala and Nkateko Rikhotso join the Baobabs for the first time this year.

They were set to team up with local Baobab veterans, the goal-shooter Grace Leshaba, Kamogelo Motsamai and Dakalo Chikala, all of them also from Diesel ‘n Dust Netball Club.

The five players from Bela-Bela were expected to join their team-mates in Polokwane shortly, for preparations ahead of the inter-provincial Brutal Fruit Professional League, on a date and venue yet to be decided.

The Baobabs have been improving from the tournament since the year 2016.

That year the Limpopo girls came out 10th from the rournament, but improved to position eight in 2017.

Diesel n Dust Netball Club head coach, Koketso Kgabo, expressed his joy at the selction of more players from the team.

He said the success of the selected players would rub off onto the younger ones, as a perfect motivation.
