WINDHOEK, 22 MAY (NAMPA) – Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) women’s volleyball team and Nampower's men’s team currently lead their respective logs half way through the 2017 Central Volleyball Association Season.

In third place is 21 Brigade on six points from three matches.
Other teams in the men’s competition include defending champions Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club (KVNC) at number four with five points.
National University of Science and Technology are at number five, with SKW at number six.

They are followed by Revival Volleyball Club (RVC) who have four points from three matches.
Revival won two games and lost one.
Other teams participating include Unam, KVNC, Nust and NDF.
Speaking to Nampa on Monday, the competition director Mutizwa Gwaze said they are grateful to the Namibia Volleyball Federation who are availing funds from Bank Windhoek to smoothly run the league.
“We use the money for booking venues, paying match officials and as prize money for the winning teams,” he said.
He added that the money is not enough, hence they are calling on other cooperates to come on board and sponsor individual clubs.
While most of the teams have been able to fulfil all their fixtures, Namibia Defence Force (NDF) teams (both men and women) have not played any matches as they are currently out on missions.
This also applies to City of Windhoek (CoW) who will join the league this coming weekend.
SKW are the defending champions in the women’s league.
On the Wednesday, KNVC will face DTS at Police Volleyball Courts in Windhoek in the women’s league.
In the men’s league, KVNC will play CoW at the same venue with Nampower and SKW closing the programme for the day.
On Saturday, it will be a triple header at Leopards Valley for CoW who will clash with SKW at 10h00 before facing 21BDE at 13h00.
They will conclude the day with a clash against ADBE at 14h00.
