Netball World Cup 2023
Cape Town will be hosting the 2023 Netball World Cup from Friday 28 July and we look forward to supporting women’s sports, and ultimately continuing with the development of Netball in the Overstrand.
Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, says most people enjoy playing sports because it is a great way to stay active and healthy. She added that there is important life lessons one can take away from being involved in sports: Show up for practice, work hard, play by the rules; respect fellow team players and opponents and look after the friendships you have made.
The Mayor encourages residents to wear any sports T-shirts on Fridays to support the Netball Friday campaign (the same way we do with Bok Fridays).
If you are in the Hermanus area and keen on catching a match or two of the Netball World Cup 2023, the Thusong Centre in Hawston will be screening the following games:
• Australia v Zimbabwe: Friday 28 July at 11am
• Opening Ceremony: Friday 28 July at 4pm
