FOR the first time, the Sol Plaatje University (SPU) participated in the University Sports South Africa (USSA) tournament that took place at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in the Western Cape from 4 to 8 July.
The two teams, the dance sports team and the netball team, received their playing and apparel kits before heading to the Netball and Dance Sports Championships.
Although the netball team lost in all their games, the students’ sports co-ordinator, Tshepo Masoeu, is confident that they will settle in and be ready for the following tournaments.
The USSA is considered the official unified national umbrella sports structure for the regulation, organisation and co-ordination of student sports activities at regional, provincial and national levels in the tertiary education sector of South Africa.
The principles are based on unity, accountability, non-racialism, non-sexism and democracy.
