The first of two legs of the Varsity Hockey tournament get underway in Cape Town between 3 – 6 May 2019 at the UCT Hockey Astro.

This will be the first time in the competition’s history that the University of Cape Town (UCT) will host the tournament. The second leg will take place at the NWU Hockey Astro in Potchefstroom from 10 – 13 May 2019.

The competition works on a gender-rotation system every year and this season it will be the ladies who will be battling it out for the title. Defending champions, University of Pretoria (UP-Tuks) will have their sights set on claiming back-to-back titles. The UP-Tuks men won the competition last year, while the ladies are also the current USSA champions.  

In true Varsity Sports fashion, student-athletes must maintain a minimum number of 60 credits and not be over the age of 25 in order to participate. Hockey will see 13 national team players running out in their respective university colours.

National Players:

·         Kristen Paton (UJ)

·         Marizen Marais (UP-Tuks)

·         Sandiswe Tabata (Maties)

·         Stephanie Botha (Maties)

·         Ashleigh-Jean Datnow (Wits)

·         Nikki Veto (Wits)

·         Casey-Jean Botha (Kovsies)

·         Courtney du Preez (NWU)

·         Mia Barnard (NWU)

·         Mishka Ellis (NWU)

·         Kirsty Adams (NWU)

·         Sare Laubscher (NWU)

·         Jacolene Mclaren (NWU)

“We are very excited to host this event,” said UCT head coach, Nicole de Vries. “As a team, we are not only looking to perform consistently and compete for a position in the top four, but also to enjoy the opportunity to participate in such a phenomenal event.”

“On behalf of UCT, we are looking to create an environment and atmosphere where people feel welcome and enjoy their Varsity Hockey experience,” she concluded.

Varsity Hockey code manager Jana Arlow explained that the tournament is one of the greatest amphitheatres for the sport in South Africa.

“The sheer number of Varsity Hockey alumni that have gone on to represent South Africa is an indication of the strength of the tournament and how much value it brings to the sport as a whole.

“None of this would be possible without the generous support of our sponsors FNB, Mugg & Bean and MTN. We are also grateful for the support from the South African Hockey Association and USSA Hockey.”

5FM will host their official after-party following the weekend’s matches, on Monday 6 May at the UCT Hockey Clubhouse.

  7. Great post made here. One thing I’d like to say is the fact most professional fields consider the Bachelor Degree as the entry level requirement for an online certification. Although Associate Degrees are a great way to begin with, completing your own Bachelors opens up many doors to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions offer you Online versions of their diplomas but typically for a considerably higher fee than the organizations that specialize in online course plans.

  31. You know? When I first came online with my blog, I understand that commenting give me backlinks. I love blog commenting, but I did the mistake along the way I commented other’s blog. Many bloggers marked me as spam and I didn’t any of my comment live on the post.
    I learnt related to blog comment after several month with blogging, and then it become my favorite strategy for marketing the business. Comment is a great to interact with other people in area of business, and help you to build relationship with both readers and other bloggers.

  32. I realised late that it is always good to leave a mark. This helps to acknowledge the author for his hardwork and is also good for building backlinks and relations with like minded people.I read most of the posts on your blog. My blog belonging to a similar category helps me a lot. Love them.

  33. I didn’t know that commenting on blogs could help your ranking. I really like your tip that comments should add value instead of just commenting to get your link out there. I think asking questions is a great way to start a conversation and add to the discussion. Can you add a backlink to replies that you make on comments? Thanks for all this great information!
    I can confirm to your readers as well blog commenting not only works, it works great! And it even works as the only source of backlinks, too, provided there is plenty of content on the website. Probably these days the dwell time is just as important as backlinks

  34. I really appreciate your post about blog comments, I have ranked my site through this and got some high traffic from it. However, I have to keep in mind that this blog comments can also be a risk in seo. So I created questions below and hope you can help me with an answer.
    Do you have any routine on how many blog comments should I do every month to make my site on top? How do I include my website on comments? using my keyword or by just using my name as anchor text?
