Tutu plays ball

11 November 2011

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu put in a guest appearance when two eponymous research units - UCT's Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation and the Desmond Tutu TB Centre at Stellenbosch University - celebrated his 80th birthday on 7 October with a game of netball.

Following on a successful soccer match last year, won by the TB Centre, staff from the two facilities gathered at UCT on 8 November to toast 'The Arch', and to resume their friendly rivalry. (Although some players didn't get it that netball is not a contact sport.)

And as the saying goes, a good time was had by all. UCT was also able to avenge their soccer defeat, taking the netball honours.
