It's time to show your colours at Varsity Netball 2023

The excitement is palpable as the eagerly anticipated Varsity Netball tournament gets underway on 20 August. With a flurry of high-energy matches, electrifying plays, and fierce competition, this year's tournament promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the best student netball in the country.

From 20 August to 18 September, across three power-packed weekends, the Varsity Netball tournament will take place at three prestigious venues - Wits University, University of Johannesburg, and Stellenbosch University. The schedule promises a thrilling showcase of skill, determination, and teamwork as eight top-notch teams from various universities vie for the championship title.

The participating teams include title holders Maties, Wits, UFS, Madibaz, UP-Tuks, UJ, NWU, and UWC. Last year undefeated Maties took it all the way to the final, where they beat NWU 68-55, for the first Varity Netball title.

“Varsity Netball is not just about competition; it's a platform for showcasing raw talent that has the potential to shape the future of international netball. A significant number of the current Proteas team, who played in the Netball World Cup, are former or current Varsity Netball players.
