SA Hockey Women named for Summer Series

The Summer Series was a quintessential part of the South African Summer before the arrival of the covid pandemic. 2023 will see the familiar favorite make its return as UCT plays host. The South African Women will begin their 2023 adventure with a four match test series against India, supplemented by a friendly game against World Champions Netherlands.

Morgan de Jager and Cailynn den Bakker will both have the opportunity to earn their first caps for their country while on the other end of the spectrum Quanita Bobbs is comfortably the most experienced with over 100 caps more than all but three players in the team

The exciting Ntsopa Mokoena, who scored a hat-trick in her second test match, and Taheera Augousti, along with Kayla Swarts will play on South African soil for the first time in the green and gold.

The series also marks the first test match the South African women have played in South Africa since February 2020, almost three years, simultaneously welcoming fans to the stadium.

Tickets are available at the door at UCT. They are R40 for an adult and R10 for under 18. For those unable to attend live the games will be live streamed on Supersport Schools website or the app.
