With just a few days to go until the Knockout Cup, we see everyone putting in their final prep.
This year’s event will be run differently to what we have grown accustomed, due to Newlands Swimming Pools being out of action for some much needed renovation and repair work.
The semi-finals will be hosted on Monday the 13th of March, with U13s at SACS Junior, U14s at Wynberg Boys, U15s and U16s at Rondebosch and U19s at Bishops. Fixtures will be released soon.
The finals will all be at Reddam in Tokai on Wednesday the 15th of March.
