Excitement is brewing with the very first edition of the SASN U/19 Schools Netball Championships, beginning on Thursday, 9 August at Wits University in Johannesburg.
Last month, over 40 teams from across the nation made the journey to Wits University fight for a place in SASN U/19 Schools Netball Championships, with only twelve teams from the Batho and Ubuntu divisions qualifying for the upcoming tournament in August.
As with the South African Schools Netball Nationals, matches will once again be streamed live on the DStv Now app, and one does not have to be a DStv subscriber to access the feed. The app is available, free of charge on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
