It has been an exciting yet challenging 2021 for Maccabi Western Province.

Our planning and schedules have been delayed due to the impact of Covid-19 — however, through the hard work and commitment of all our coaches, managers, convenors and players we have achieved a great deal.

We have hosted numerous junior golf tournaments where the turnout has been terrific. We have run trials across a range of sports, trained on a weekly basis with some of our main team sports such as futsal and netball, as well as organised three-day training camps where our players from across the country gathered together to prepare for the Games.

We still have a few selections to finalise but we are well on track to establishing one of Maccabi SA’s largest contingents ever. With the Maccabiah Games in July 2022, we have seven months to ensure that our players and teams are as prepared as possible to bring home medals for South Africa.

We would like to thank everyone who has played a part in our journey to date, and we hope the Maccabi experience has been one of great value and enjoyment. Looking forward to what 2022 will bring!
