THE annual Sportweni Academy sports tournament is now under way at Port Shepstone High School.

The tournament hosts a myriad of netball and rugby teams from schools across the country.

Participating teams this year said the competition was tight as there were more than 50 teams attending.

Activities during the tournament, which is hosted over the Easter school holiday period every year, include intensive training sessions, matches, as well as team-building activities at selected areas on the South Coast.

Once again, the tournament has brought a high influx of tourists to the South Coast, boosting tourism and local revenue.

Director of the academy and retired Proteas batsman Rudi Steyn said this year the tournament is hosting its regulars, including a team that has been with the tournament since inception — Welkom High School — as well as some newbies like Laerskool Brits from Brits in Northwest.
