Hockey: St.Mary's Waverley Host Big Festival

St. Mary’s Waverley will once again be hosting one of the biggest hockey festival’s for girls when 32 school’s meet between the 3-6 April, 2014.


2013 St Marys School Hockey FestivalThe St.Mary’s School Hockey Festival will take place for the 15th time and it promises to kick start the hockey season and produce some highly competitive matches. This year, 32 schools from across Southern Africa will be sending their best girls’ teams to participate. The festival has been in existence since 2000 when St Mary’s was the only school in Johannesburg to have an AstroTurf. It was initiated by ex-national and Olympic coach, Ros Howell, and has a unique fast-paced format with games played on 25-minute one-way only running time.

Expect some very hotly contested matches from the likes of Oranje Meisies, St.Mary’s Kloof, Somerset College and of course the hosts who will be a tough proposition in their back yard.

As in 2013, the festival will support the Save Our Rhinos Campaign and will run awareness programmes over the four days.
