Indoor hockey extravaganza for SA fans


A bumper December lies in wait for South Africa’s sports lovers as no less than 17 indoor hockey Test and international matches will be played in Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

The matches coincide with the ninth edition of the hugely popular Nolands Pro Series indoor (PSi) Nationals, which features age-group teams from franchises across the country and Namibia battling it out for title honours.

The flagship SA men’s and women’s national indoor hockey teams will be in action.

First up, the SA women’s team will take on Namibia in a five-Test series during which the first three Test matches will take place on December 10, and 11 (double header)in Pietermaritzburg, to coincide with the PSi Nationals U14 competition in the KZN capital.

The fourth and fifth Tests (another double header) are at Danville Park Girls School (in the morning) and the UKZN Westville campus (in the evening).

Thereafter, the girls in green and gold cross swords with Australia, the USA and Namibia in the Spar Four Nations, all eight Test matches at the UKZN Westville campus in Durban.

These matches coincide with the PSi U16 and U18 Nationals in Durban, as does the four-match Denbeys Indoor Series between South Africa and the star-studded PSi International All Stars. The men’s series will include three matches at UKZN Westville campus and one in Pietermaritzburg.

The U11 and U12 PSi Nationals took place in early July and if the standard of play was anything to go by, the crowds are guaranteed great entertainment next month in KwaZulu-Natal when the U13, U14, U16 and U18 boys and girls teams take on the best that their peers across the country have to offer.

Aside from the senior players, those set to benefit the most from watching the men’s and women’s internationals in action will be the boys and girls taking part in PSI Nationals.

Pro Series indoor brand manager Bruce Jacobs said Wednesday that the senior series will bring the sport of indoor hockey into the spotlight in South Africa.

“PSi feels that this senior series will really leverage not only the SA players’ profile but the indoor hockey sports code in our country.

“We want to show our PSi kids that there are role models in indoor hockey to look up to,” said Jacobs, who captained South Africa’s men’s outdoor team at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

“PSi anticipates that watching these fine players will give them something to aspire to, such as representing their country at the likes of an Indoor Hockey World Cup.”

There is no entry fee for the SA/Namibia women’s series. The ticket price for the Spar Four Nations women’s tournament is R20 for the general public, as is the men’s series between SA and the International All Stars.

SA logo NEWSA men’s indoor hockey team named for series


The South African men’s indoor hockey team has been named to face a star-studded PSi International All Stars line-up in the four-match Denbeys Indoor Series in Durban and Pietermaritzburg next month.

While five of South Africa’s national team to take on the All Stars wore the green and gold at the 2015 Indoor Hockey World Cup (IHWC) in Leipzig, Germany in February, seven of the 12 players will make their debuts. The International All Stars team has five Indoor Hockey World Cup winners in their midst.

Pierre le Roux, coach of the SA team, said there was a reason behind the selection of so many newcomers for the December 10 to 13 series.

“For the Blitzstokke, this is the start of our 2018 Indoor Hockey World Cup campaign and process. The team was picked to have a look at some new players and increase the size of the squad.

“Some of the players that attended the 2015 Indoor Hockey World Cup were deliberately overlooked for this event, as we know their capabilities. This will allow us at the next selection event to choose between a larger pool of players while also creating much-needed competition in the squad.”

Eight of the 12-man SA team were in the KZN Raiders side that won the SA Interprovincial Hockey Tournament in Pietermaritzburg last weekend, while KZN Inland and Western Province have two players apiece.

The four players in the All Stars team who struck 2015 IHWC gold with the Netherlands were Lauren Goedgebuure (voted best goalkeeper), Sjoerd de Wert, Teun Rohof and captain Robert Tigges, while Benjamin Weiss was in the victorious German side that won the 2011 IHWC.

Apart from the exciting contests on offer for the general public the international clashes will also provide a great learning experience for the boys and girls participating in the PSi Nationals in KZN next month.

(Test matches in brackets)

KZN Raiders: Chris McCathie (13 Tests), Matt Fairweather (14), Justin Domleo (14), Robin Jones (0), Mohamed Mea (11), Jethro Eustice (0), Taine Paton (0), Keagan Robinson (0)

PSI felt that this is a nice opportunity to spread the event to other parts of South Africa and would give a new feel and vibe to the tournament. 

We are very excited to announce that the event will be played in conjunction with a Senior Ladies four Nations International tournament.

The PSI players and management will watch and support the Test matches each evening. The majority of the Series will take at UKZN Westville Sports Hall where the majority of the kids will be housed.

A few Ladies Test matches would be arranged in Pietermaritzburg for the u14 group.

The Namibian Hawks will look capitalise on their Log point’s advantage to claim the Franchise of the year trophy which has eluded them over the last few years.

The Hawks are currently on 9 Points with the Foxes and Seals both on 5 Points as a result of the u11 & u12 Nationals which was held in July this year.
