Having a ball

28 July 2009

School learnersSchool learners used their winter holidays to showcase their talents as the UCT Sports Administration's holiday sport outreach programme entered its second year.

Scores of boys and girls aged 11 to 16, from Langa, Manenberg, Gugulethu and New Crossroads, were introduced to sporting codes such as basketball, soccer, rugby and hockey.

The week-long event is a collaboration between UCT and the Amy Biehl Foundation. The foundation transported the learners to UCT, while Sports Administration worked with students to provide them with refreshments, coaches and facilities.

Sports administrator Peter Buckton said the intention was to keep the children busy during the holidays, expose them to the sporting codes and facilities, and allow them an opportunity to mingle.
