Gauteng Sport and Recreation hands over sport facilities to West Rand communities, 30 May

Exciting New Sports Facilities for West Rand Schools and Communities

The landscape of Gauteng’s recreation and sporting facilities within the West Rand is fast improving.

This is as two more state of the art multipurpose sporting facilities, -also known as combi-courts -are handed over to two additional schools this coming Wednesday, 30 May, 2018.

The facilities boasting soccer fields, netball, basketball and tennis courts among others are located at Setlolamathe Primary in Kagiso and Phandulwazi Primary in Mohlakeng.

This brings to 4 the number of facilities opened within the West Rand since 2016. The other two have been opened at Toekomsrus Stadium and Phahama High School in Mohlakeng.

The initiative is made possible by the partnership involving the Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation, Rand West City, Mogale City and Sports Trust.

Through its mass participation programme the department wants to promote healthy and active lifestyles in communities and at the same time work towards the transformation of sport.

To achieve this the department is on a drive to address shortage of sporting and recreation facilities and ensuring that everyone including previously disadvantaged communities have access to well-equipped facilities with a variety of sporting codes.
