TELKOM NETBALL LEAGUE DELIVERS SPECIAL TREAT FOR GAUTENG SCHOOLS
According to Netball South Africa (NSA), netball is the most supported women participation sport in South Africa.
“We know that most schools in South Africa have soccer and netball as a preferred sport for learners, with most schools participating in netball. NSA and Telkom decided to visit various schools in Gauteng in an effort to motivate learners to play the sport for a purpose and to take it seriously as a career.” Says Mooketsi Mocumi, Telkom Head of Communications.
Since the Telkom Netball League began, NSA together with the Proteas team have visited 17 schools. The chosen schools are actively participating in Netball already and the league wanted to motivate learners by bringing netball stars to their school to have a one-on-one session with the schools Netball team and personally pose a challenge for the school to bring in the most crowd at the Telkom Netball League’ games which took place at the University of Pretoria’s Rembrandt Hall.
A school that brought the highest number of learners stood a chance to win R50 000, a one-on-one workshop with the Proteas team, a kit for their school, and Netball equipment. Hebron Technical and Commercial High School was announced as the winning school who will get to enjoy the amazing prizes.
Telkom transported all schools who participated in the competition to the games and gave learners food packs.
“initiatives such as these are our way of making a difference in the communities we are in and showing them how much we care. Taking netball back to the people is something that we are passionate about as a federation and this initiative has allowed us to do exactly that,” says Cecilia Molokwane, Netball South Africa President.
“By addressing Netball at school level and teaching learners from a young age that they can make a difference through the sport, we are shaping an important culture of sporting in this country and preserving the sport for future generations.” Concludes Mocumi.
