Every year, Eva Demaya organizes a sport competition for the young people in her district.
In the dry period from May to October, there is not much employ for the young people in the villages. Sport a good way to keep them active. Sports also contributes to the social community because it attracts large groups of spectators. Each team has an extensive, well organized group of supporters en sport is an important part of life in the villages.
Eva Demaya organizes two competitions, netball for the females and a football competition for man.
Recently, another form of sport for ladies is in place in Malawi, namely ladies ball, but Eva Demaya has not given in to this trend yet.
This year 86 teams are registered for the football competition and 52 teams for the netball competition, which makes netball very popular this year (last year there were 40 teams).
To take part of the competitions the teams pay a small fee for registration and prices. The winners will receive an attractive price but there is also a consolation price for the team that ends last.
On behalf of all participants of the football and netball competition thanks to all sponsors for their financial support of this competition.
