Academics take to the action netball court

Have you ever wondered what academic staff are up to after they close their office doors behind them? A group of academic staff members from the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology on the Vaal Triangle Campus (NWU Vaal) enjoys the fast paced seven-a-side game of action netball to clear their heads – and by doing so forge new friendships and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

At the moment the team – aptly named “Team Extreme”, competes in the Fifth League of the Vanderbijlpark Action Netball League.  The team is made-up of the following players: Mrs Este Lubbe, Dr Anita Lennox, Miss Monique du Plessis, Ms Leilanie Joubert, Mrs Ilse Smith, Ms Celeste van der Sandt, Mrs Liandi van den Berg, Mrs Anina Marx, Mrs Alinka Mostert, Mrs Jackie Bonnema, Mrs Lerike Jacobs and Mrs Olive Stumke. The team’s captains/coordinators are Dr Anita Lennox and Mrs Este Lubbe. The team is sponsored by the Executive Dean of the Faculty, Prof Herman van der Merwe.
