The trio- Ntandeyenkosi Moyo, Thulani Vincent Mututa and Tseboho Nare- are already oozing with confidence and optimistic of bringing the championship to the southern African country. The three are currently riding on a crest wave of success after they scooped the African Moort Court Championships held in Arusha, Tanzania, last year.

The campus will be named after Zimbabwean President and Chancellor, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
