The Zimbabwe women's basketball team has qualified for the 9th All Africa Games to be held in July in Algeria after they were selected as the best runners-up in all competing zones of the qualifying stage, The Herald reported on Friday.

This comes as a relief to the Basketball Union of Zimbabwe who only reaffiliated to FIBA last year.

Tunisia will represent Zone I, with Mali coming in from Zone II while the Zone III representatives will be Cote d'Ivoire. Zone IV, Zone V and Zone VI representatives will be Cameroon, Kenya and Mozambique while Zimbabwe come in as the best runners up.

Other teams taking part include defending champions Nigeria and hosts Algeria.

Zimbabwe's hopes for the Games had suffered a major blow after Mozambique topped the women's tournament to get the automatic qualifying ticket.

But now they have been given a new lease of life and this development also means that the side has also qualified for the Africa Nations Cup set for September this year.

National assistant coach Spencer Nyamadzawo said they were ready for the All Africa Games challenge. "It is a good thing that we have qualified even as runners up as that shows we were part of the top performing teams," Nyamadzawo said.

"Our players are still in action and they are fit as all the leagues in the country are still going on and after all we had lined up a number of friendly matches before.

"The Games are in July and we are also very fortunate that by the time the games starts we would just be finishing our national league games here so in terms of fitness it is to our advantage," said Nyamadzawo.
