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.

“This festival is getting bigger and better every year. A tournament like this creates incredible opportunities for women’s sport going forward.”
