SA Women’s Indoor Hockey team Preps for World Cup


The players to represent the South Africa women’s indoor hockey team that will take part in a Four Nations tournament in Toronto, Canada from December 3 to 7 have been named.

SA women’s indoor coach Lennie Botha said Friday that the other teams taking part are Canada, Argentina and the USA.

“We are very grateful to SPAR for their support; if it wasn’t for their assistance this tour would not have been possible,” said the coach.

In preparation for their tournament in Toronto, Canada, there will be a SPAR Indoor Challenge at Maris Stella School, Durban on Sunday the 16th of November 2014 for any under 18 hockey lovers.

“This is not necessarily the team that will represent South Africa at the Indoor World Cup next year, the Indoor World Cup side will be finalised soon after this team returns from Canada.”

The 2015 Indoor World Cup takes place in Leipzig, Germany from January 28 to February 8.

Botha said the Four Nations in Canada was an exciting opportunity as never before had a South Africa national women’s indoor side had the opportunity to play in a series overseas in preparation for an Indoor World Cup.
