Grassroots sports strengthen community bonds

On Saturday 19 November 2022, the Cape Winelands District Municipality (CWDM) hosted a grassroots sports tournament in the Breede Valley in partnership with the Cape Winelands Sports Council, local municipalities, sports federations and grassroots sports clubs.

Approximately 1 500 people from across the district participated on the day in the various sports codes such as dominoes, chess, darts, table tennis, riel dance, indoor pool, indoor cricket, volleyball and lawn bowls.

The focus of the tournament was inclusive participation and encouragement rather than competition, as grassroot sports offer more than just sport – there are great mental and physical health benefits and an opportunity to meet new people.

We know that sports is greatly beneficial to our youth, leading to positive life choices and enhancing education and career opportunities, but grassroots sports also bring communities together.

The CWDM continues to support such initiatives that encourage productive social activities in our communities.

 

Grondvlaksport skep ’n gevoel van samehorigheid

Die KWDM poog om inisiatiewe te ondersteun wat produktiewe sosiale aktiwiteite in ons gemeenskappe aanmoedig. Die grondvlaksportstoernooi is so ’n inisiatief, aangesien dit op inklusiewe deelname en aanmoediging fokus, eerder as op mededinging. Deelnemers vind geestelik én fisies baat daarby, want hulle bestee nie alleen tyd met die gemeenskap nie, maar neem ook deel aan gesonde en prettige sportkodes wat die adrenalien aan die gang kry.
