Kathorus netball tournament held in Katlehong

The Glamour Girls u-15 team before their game against Thoko Stars u-15. The game ended 9-7 in favour of Thoko Stars.

About 24 teams participated in the tournament, including 14 u-13 teams and 10 u-15 teams.

Benny Mphahlele, the general secretary of the ESC, said: “We chose netball because it is a women’s sport, and women are the victims of most of the crime.

“We decided to take advantage of the school holidays to hold the tournament.”

Mphahlele said netball teams in Kathorus are not united.

“We want to unite them and teach them about the importance of participating in the Kathorus Netball League.

“If they participate in the league they might be selected to play for Ekurhuleni Netball Team. As a result they will stand a good chance of being selected for the national team. If they are selected for the national team, they will stand a good chance to participate in the Olympic games and play against the best players in the world,” Mphahlele said.
