Temperatures rise as we breach the halfway mark at the Spar KwaZulu-Natal Hockey Tournament this weekend.

Ready to defend their title, St Anne’s College players Brooke Veenstra and Andiswa Gwala can’t wait to welcome teams to the upcoming Pietermaritzburg North Regional that they will host on Saturday 22 April. 

The Spar tournament was launched for the first time in 2011 which makes this year the 13th year running an amazing tournament and bringing girls hockey teams from all over together. 

This previous weekend 15 April 2023 we had teams from all around Durban participating in the Durban South Regional of the hockey challenge.

A great tournament of hockey where the finals concluded with Kuswag High School facing Kingsway High School , after a nail biting final that lead to penalty shootouts, Kuswag High School took the title and were crowned as the Durban South Regional Champions.

This weekend the excitement continues with first team girls playing it out around Hilton for the Pietermaritzburg North regional on Saturday as St Annes High School host the fifth regional of the Spar KZN Schoolgirls’ Hockey Challenge on their astro fields.

First team girls around Margate, Kokstad and Matat also going head to head in the sixth tournament for the Spar KZN Schoolgirls’ Hockey Challenge competing for the Sisonke and uGu regional on Sunday 23 April 2023 hosted by Creston High School.

We wish all these teams the best for this weekend as they play representing their school and region and look forward to seeing which teams hoist the Regional Cup next and who will be making it through to the Grand Finals this year alongside Danville Park Girls’ High School (DBN North Regional), St Mary’s DSG (Highway Regional), Kuswag Hoërskool (Durban South Regional) and Durban Girls’ College (Durban Central Regional) that will be taking place at St Mary’s DSG on the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of July 2023.
