Mawawa FC Wins R4000
This year Tree of life Organisation (TOLO) celebrated its 6th Annual Soccer and Netball Tournament in Umzimvubu Local Municipality, Mount Frere, Ward 23. This is where we saw 13 soccer teams and 3 netball teams fighting to earn the best place in the Ward. TOLO was formed in 2014 with the vision of uniting youth to fight against violence, substance abuse. And also assist current and future leader(s) in our community on developing valuable skills, experience and meaningful growth.
After 16 soccer matches have been played three teams prove themselves to be the best teams of the tournament this year after all knockout stages. The three prizes were allocated and Juventer’s FC took third prize of R1000.00, Amawushe FC took second prize of R3000.00 and Brigates FC (Mawawa’s) took first prize of R4000.00.
In netball we had only three teams that play against each, each team to play only two matches and they played on point system. There were only two prizes that have to be won, three matches were played 7-Attacker’s took second prize of R400.00 and Pondomise United took first prize of R800.00.
Ever since the formation of the TOLO every year during December festive season we have hosted TOLO tournament which we have had netball and soccer teams. The purpose of hosting the tournament during this time of the year is to reduce the level of alcohol and substance abuse during the festive season. The tournament has managed to attract even other teams from outside the ward as far as teams from the Mount town and Qumbu town. We have hope of increase the tournament to include other sporting activities to ensure that we have participation of almost everyone with the Ward both young and old.
