Phumza Maweni announced herself as a player to watch in 2020 with a number of command performances at Goal Keeper. The 36-year-old’s second season at Lightning saw her build on previous form, working in tandem with fellow SPAR Pretorius defender Karla Pretorius. Maweni has repeatedly challenged the league’s most damaging goalers with her physicality and one-on-one defensive efforts.
Maweni previously played in South Africa’s Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League and in the Vitality English Superleague for Loughborough Lightning and Severn Stars before joining the Sunshine Coast. Maweni is a current member of the South African SPAR Proteas and most recently represented the side in the Spar Challenge tournament in January 2021.
