First Netball Game on Kriegler Farms – 12 September

Kriegler Farms farm workers having great fun playing netball!

Colors Foundation Family Development programme sport programme

On the 12th of September there was great excitement and anticipation on Kriegler Farms before the start of the first netball game between the two teams on the farm. This forms part of the Colors Foundation Family Development initiative currently underway on the farm.  The beautiful spring day was perfect, windless day for the game. The two newly assembled teams consisted of resident farm workers and named after the two housing villages on the Farms, Witsupply and Vuilgesig.  The teams met on the newly marked netball field with recently erected goal hoops and they certainly had a great deal of fun!

Alet Coetzee, Colors Foundation co-ordinator for the implementation of the Programme was the referee. The rest of the farm workers turned up to watch the event and after some strenuous play and much high volume crowd support, when the final whistle blew the score was Witsupply 14 – Vuilgesig 9.  What the players lacked in fitness they made up for with enthusiasm and it seems clear that this is the start of a new sporting tradition at Kriegler Farms.
