The Zimbabwe Ladies Golf Association (ZLGU) team to take part in the A &B triangular series in Botswana later this month has stepped up its preparations for the regional event.

The biannual tournament, which is set for July 29 and 30, will see the local team playing against hosts Botswana and Zambia in singles and foursome competition.

The Zimbabwean team, which had 32 players announced in the first place, was trimmed to 10 early this month with two reserve players who will travel only when the need arises.

The players have embarked on a series of preparations as they spent the last weekend practising at Harare's elite golf club, Chapman.

All the players travelled to Harare for the training under the eye of team captain and veteran golfer Jean Mckenzie.

The ZLGU team selectors settled for experience when they chose the 10 representatives.

The A Division will be led by Chapman's Jean McKenzie as the captain.

The veteran of many tournaments, who is enjoying her game after having been crowned the A Division winner recently at the Manicaland Open, McKenzie will seek nothing short of victory.

According to the Herald on Thursday, the other players who will stand by her side will be Warren Hills Golf Club's Loveness Chandavengerwa, Loice Chingono of Wingate, Kezi Chiwanza from the Lowveld with junior sensation Virginia Vhudzi of Borrowdale Brooke completing the squad.

The Zimbabwe Ladies Golf Union president Thembi Moyo will be the reserve and non-travelling player for the A Division.

The B Division side will be led by Gweru Golf Club player Nancy Dube as the captain.

The B Division team, which has opted for experience, has in its side the Royal Harare duo of Indrila Gulab and Harry Allen.

Rodnah Mutasa of Warren Hills also made it into the squad with Borrowdale Brooke's Constance Mashiri. Veteran female golfer Molline Kalimazeni of Borrowdale Brooke will be the stand-in and non-travelling player.
