Playing sports teaches life lessons like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, accountability, and teamwork. In the case of hockey players on the North-West University’s (NWU’s) campus in Vanderbijlpark, sport also aids in lessoning the financial burden associated with university studies.
It is said that sweat plus sacrifice equals success. When one looks at the scorecard of the past weekend, the rugby teams from the North-West University’s (NWU’s) campus in Vanderbijlpark seem to be in agreement.
The North-West University (NWU) athletics team flexed their muscles, literally and figuratively, at the recent Varsity Athletics Championships held at the Bestmed Tuks Stadium. The team – comprising members from its campuses in Mahikeng, Vanderbijlpark and Potchefstroom – walked away with a total of nine gold, six silver and four bronze medals.
Administrators, players and supporters are in agreement that the fourth annual Sasol/NWU Vanderbijlpark Senior Basketball Tournament was not only a showcase of exceptional talent, but also a well-organised event.
Karabo Motlhabane, a third-year BCom student at the North-West University’s (NWU’s) campus in Mahikeng has been selected to be part of the national karate team of University Sports South Africa (USSA).
The North-West University’s annual staff golf day was a huge success, with approximately 50 players taking part.
