Another week has come and gone, but this means we are just one step closer to the Knock-Out Cup!

Results from the weekend

Very few games were played this weekend, but the big clash in the boys’ section was most definitely between Rondebosch and Reddam. In the U19 section, we saw a far superior Rondebosch side take the game, winning 12-3. In the U15 section, the roles were very much reversed, with Reddam dominating to take the game 8-2. The U14 was much the same for Reddam, winning the game 16-6.

In the girls’ section, Wynberg played Springfield. The U19 game was tight, but ended in Springfield’s favour, 11-10. For the U16’s, Wynberg took control and walked away with a 16-6 win. For U14, Wynberg played their hearts out to walk away with the 5-1 win.

What’s to come

For the boys there are very few games. This week sees a massive clash at SACS, as they take on their rivals Wynberg. This will be a game not to be missed, so make sure you make your way there! While Bishops takes on Reddam and Westerford at Bishops.

For the girls, we see Herschel take on Springfield, Reddam to face Somerset College, Rustenburg against Bloemhof and Westerford goes up against Rhenish.

Note: Some games may be postponed or moved due to the outbreak of measles in the Boland region.

Pitcairn Cup

This weekend sees what can only be described as one of the best U14 co-ed tournaments in the country! Reddam once again will be the places to go this weekend to see some of the top schools from around the country fight it out to get their hands on some silverware. With tons of top polo, great food and much more, make sure you get down and support!

In the boys’ section, we see 12 sides participate, including Bishops, Reddam U13 and U14, Rondebosch, SACS, Westerford, Wynberg and Somerset College.

The girls’ section sees 14 sides, including Somerset College, Heschel, Reddam U13 as well as U14 A and B, Springfield, Westerford, Rustenburg and Wynberg.

The Reddam U14 boys will be fighting to defend their title, while Herschel will be defending the streak breaking win of last year, where they managed to take what could have been 9th victory in a row for Reddam!
