Sisipho Nkebetwana has been chosen as August’s winner of Express Let’s Play Sport Star of the Month.

Her selection was for achievements in athletics and netball.

Sisipho (14) is a Gr. 8 learner at the Dr. Viljoen Combined School in Bloemfontein.

She performed exceptional in athletics and netball competitions.

Sisipho is a goal shooter for the u.14A netball-team, while in athletics she competes in long jump.

Her goal-shooting ability has seen scores in all matches and competitions in which she featured for her school team this year.

She showed her skills in a recent interschool netball-tournament against the Louw Wepener Combined School.

  • The rising netball-star netted ten goals in the first half against her opponents, teaching them how it is done. The SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month is a competition for anyone aged six to 18 who is still in school.

SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority. With such strong sporting influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic deve­lopment of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.

To qualify, nominate an athlete excelling in any sporting code.
