St Mary's Investec Hockey Festival
Investec has been the principal sponsor of the St Mary's Investec Hockey festival for twelve years. The festival is a powerful platform for elevating women's sport and assisting young talented women reach their potential.

Reminiscing on a bumper 2020 festival
Not even torrid weather could dampen spirits at the 20th occasion of the St Mary’s Investec Hockey Festival. Games were shortened and additional venues used to ensure the final was played on time, to a record, fiery crowd of 3,000 on Sunday, 7 April at St Mary’s Waverley. And when it counted, the sun came out, including for the nail-biting final that saw C&N Sekondêre Meisieskool Oranje reclaim the winners’ trophy.
Record number of spectators
“This festival is getting bigger and better every year. A tournament like this creates incredible opportunities for women’s sport going forward.”
Sarah Grinyer, St Mary’s first team captain
