SA women to prepare for WCup in Canada series

2014-10-18 00:00

THE players to represent the South African 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 yesterday the other teams taking part are Canada, Argentina and the USA.

“We will play two warm-up games before the Four Nations, which is a round-robin format with playoffs that see one playing two and three playing four,” said Botha.

“This is not necessarily the team that will represent South Africa at the Indoor World Cup next year. The 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 has a South African national women’s indoor side had the opportunity to play in a series overseas in preparation for an Indoor World Cup.

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