JEFFREYS Bay will be home to the inaugural 2019 Beach Netball Tournament, presented by the Sarah Baartman Netball Association, from April 19 to 20 - a first for South Africa on this scale.

Sarah Baartman Netball Association Chairlady and event organiser, Anina Vlok, says, “Beach netball is just like ordinary netball - but not as we know it. It is a combination of netball and the beach - my two loves.

“Jeffreys Bay is the perfect location for beach netball.”

The tournament will see top netball teams from across South Africa battling it out in the four different categories: senior ladies (born 2000 and older), senior mixed (born 2000 and older), junior mixed (born between 2001 and 2006) and junior girls (born between 2001 and 2006).

A team must consist of no more than six players, with a maximum of three male players in the mixed team category. A maximum of four players and a minimum of three players will be allowed on the court at any given time.

A player may dive on the sand to catch a ball on the full or claim possession of a ball on the sand.

Matches will be two five-minute halves, with a minute interval between the halves.

There will also be a three minute break between the matches.
