The African National Congress moves without notice: That the House

  1. with deep pride that the South African team have certainly inspired and captivated the current and next generation of netball players, as well as securing a whole new fan base after some lively, nail biting and world class performances that saw them end the recent netball tournament with one draw, two losses, and four wins;
  2. further notes that even though they were beaten by their fellow Africans from Uganda 49-47, the team fought until the end;
  3. acknowledges that with the tournament being hosted on African soil for the first time ever there was immense pressure on the host team to do well;
  4. commends the team members’ performance as well the organisers of the tournament; and
  5. extends our heartiest congratulations to all the players for their efforts and for flying the South African flag high with great pride.
