Inter-Provincial Women’s Rugby Tournament in Langa
The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport celebrates cultural heritage through the promotion of women’s rugby in communities. The Inter-Provincial Women’s Rugby Tournament will be hosted in the Langa Stadium from 22 to 24 September 2012.
This tournament is the result of a partnership between the department, South African Rugby Union (SARU), Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU), as well as other entities. Eight teams from the broader Western Province, one from Gauteng, two from Boland and one from Eastern Cape will compete in this tournament.
Ms Nonceba Mphashe at the Sport Promotion Directorate: Club Development says that the tournament will emphasise women’s rugby as a recreational sport and will encourage girls and young women to learn the sport from an early age.
The tournament will have a significant social impact in bringing people together and developing women’s rugby in the respective communities. Students and volunteers from various institutions will assist the department and its partners.
