Enter A Netball Tournament To Raise Funds For School Shoes

There’s a prize for the winning team, plus it’s free to enter and watch

Keep your festive spirit alive by attending or playing in a netball tournament that doubles as a school shoe drive for underprivileged children. Seven X Netball, a club based in Khayelitsha, invites all netball players, teams and watchers to support their shoe drive on 11 January at Solomon Mahlangu Hall. The tournament starts at 11am.

Seven X Netball is hosting a free netball tournament on 11 January and all they want from spectators and players is to bring used (but in good condition) or new school shoes for children from underprivileged areas in Cape Town. "We try to make a difference in children's lives, through the sport that we love," said the organiser of the event. The inspiration came from seeing young girls play netball barefoot in the street, leading the organisers to realize how many children can't afford basics like school shoes. They are reaching out to the public to help make a difference. 

School shoes, also bring some socks, your team spirit and a desire to help those in need. To enter the tournament is free. Just gather 12 (yourself included if you’re game) team members of any age or gender and call  +27 (0)73 765 4812 or +27 (0)76 354 3744. 

Normal netball rules apply, and teams can wear whatever they’re comfortable in. All games are taking place at the Solomon Mahlangu Sports and Recreation Centre in Khayelitsha. The winning team will receive a small prize: something special and related to netball.

Watching the games is also free, and Solomon Mahlangu has ample space for all spectators to enjoy the sportsmanship. Volunteers will come around to gather the shoes and socks, after which they will be distributed to schools in the larger Cape Town area.\
