The Boys and Girls U13 A Sections, comprising eight teams each, will alternate each day between the AB Jackson Greenfields Turf and Maritzburg College’s Pape’s Astro.
The Boys and Girls B Sections are also made up of eight teams each. The Boys B Section action will play out on the UKZN Greenfields Turf. The Girls B Section matches will take place on the Shelagh Bowness Greenfields Turf at Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School (GHS).
With 112 matches on the go, on four turfs, within a three-kilometre radius of each other, over the space of three-and-a-half days, there is a veritable feast of primary schools hockey on offer for the public to enjoy.
The players will be very busy. Playing seven matches in the space of three-and-a-half days is no mean feat. The format is round-robin, with the final placings determined by the results over the course of the tournament, so consistency will be the watchword.
