Soak up the energy

08 August 2011

Soak up the energyUCT Sport & Recreation hosted its annual sports programme with 85 children from Gugulethu, selected by the Amy Biehl Foundation.

Over four days, sports administrators Peter Buckton and Karl Buckton introduced the kids, aged mostly 11 and 12, to the fundamentals of sports like basketball, hockey, soccer, rugby and volleyball.

In addition to learning the basics of these codes, the programme also "keeps them busy", said Phumza Magwza, sports co-ordinator for the foundation. Lending a hand with the youngsters was 19-year-old German student Peter Düking, enjoying a stay in South Africa before he starts his studies at the German Sport University Cologne.
