Namibia Golf Federation (NGF) secretary general Brenda Lens has expressed disappointment after Namibia was denied an opportunity to host this year's edition of the popular All Africa Challenge Trophy.
The popular continental golf tournament, which was initially scheduled for the Rossmund Golf Course at the coastal town of Swakopmund between 31 March and 4 April, had to be called off last minute due to the ongoing widespread Covid-19 pandemic.
Namibia last hosted the 2014 edition of the ever-growing ladies event at the Windhoek Golf and Country Club and was again due to stage this year's instalment, but the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the schedule.
"The Namibia Ladies Golf Union, in consultation with NGF, had a meeting last week and a decision was taken to cancel the tournament entirely, as there is no clear indication as to when all borders will reopen and air travel can flow uninterrupted.
The last tournament was held in Ghana in 2018, with South Africa taking the trophy home.
