SPAR South Africa sponsors Schoolgirls’ Fast 5’s Netball Challenge

August 14, 2019 IN THE CATEGORY: Sport sponsorship

SPAR KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) is proud to announce its sponsorship of a new sports event, the Schoolgirls’ Fast 5’s Netball Tournament, which follows on from the hugely successful hockey tournament that got rolling in KZN nine years ago, and which is now a highlight of the national schools sporting calendar.

The netball challenge will begin with four tournaments this year in four regions, based on twelve teams taking to the courts in each area. The first leg of the tournament got underway on Saturday 3 August, with the second following on 24 August, the third on 31 August and the fourth and final leg on Saturday 5 October.

The tournament comes after the excitement of the Netball World Cup in England, where the South African National side finished in fourth place. During the World Cup, the Mayor of Liverpool handed over the Netball Federation Flag to the upcoming host for the 2023 Netball World Cup, Cape Town.

Max Oliva, Managing Director of SPAR KZN said: “Signaling the start of an exciting journey for young netball players around South Africa, competitions such as our SPAR Schoolgirls’ Fast 5’s Netball Tournament open up a whole world of potential for so many talented, unearthed players from outlying areas that dream of wearing the green and gold.”
