Test bonanza for SA men’s and women’s sides
- Updated: February 17, 2016
It’s shaping up to be a busy two weeks in Cape Town for the national men’s and women’s hockey sides.
Both teams will be taking on top-class international opposition, starting on Saturday and continuing through to 5 March.
The matches will be known as the Private Property Summer Series and most matches will be at the Hartleyvale venue apart from two matches, one at Bishops and one in Stellenbosch.
The men will ‘only’ take on double Olympic champions Germany while the women are up against three different sides – India, Scotland and Germany.
All matches have been given official Test match status.
