On Saturday 9 June 2018 St. Mary’s DSG hosted their first open volleyball tournament. This winter event fills a gap in Gauteng competitions between the very active volleyball calendar in the beginning of the year with the Goliath Cup and the popular Fourways High tournament and the later events (Mahikeng, TuksVolleyball High School Tournament, AISJ, etc.).
Although the majority of schools came from across Gauteng, it was wonderful to welcome ISSA from Mahikeng and Waterford from Swaziland into the competitive mix.
Dina Kladis and her coaching team from St. Mary’s DSG did a stellar job planning and executing this successful event in Pretoria. With no entrance fee, a lovely venue and such a positive competitive atmosphere, this tournament has the potential to become a popular annual outing for schools across the country.
