Northern Cape Netball held a tournament in Kathu this past weekend. Four of the districts, Frances Baard (FB), Namakwa, John Taolo Gaetsewe (JTG) and ZF Mgcawu (ZFM) competed in Senior A, Senior B, Under-21 and a Men’s division:

The president of Netball South Africa, Cecilia Molekwane as well as the vice-president, Christine du Preez were in attendance at the start of the tournament, with the president opening the proceedings.

The Northern Cape Diamonds team was also introduced to all players and supporters at the tournament.

There were matches of an exceptionally high standard and it was especially the Frances Baard team who took the courts by storm playing excellent netball and showing that their skills are on a different level. It was therefore no surprise that they managed to be the winners in three of the four sections.
