Talk of the Town - - Bowls Banter - LEBOGANG TLOU

NE­MATO SPAR, in a bid to as­sist the Ne­mato Golf Club’s ini­tia­tive to af­ford town­ship youth the op­por­tu­nity of ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, spon­sored the club with golf shirts last week.

Ne­mato Golf Club chair­man Mzwandile Mg­weba and president Msitheli Ge­orge Mbom­boyi were the ec­static re­cip­i­ents of spon­sored golf shirts with the Ne­mato SPAR logo show­ing their sol­i­dar­ity with the club.

“We thought of SPAR be­cause they have af­ford­able prices, and cater to our com­mu­nity [as] most of their cus­tomers come from Ne­mato,” Mg­weba said.

Speak­ing on the de­sired out­comes of this spon­sor­ship, Mg­weba also spoke on de­vel­op­ing golf for the youth in the com­mu­nity.

“What we want to achieve from this is the de­vel­op­ment of dis­ad­van­taged golfers in prepa­ra­tion for the de­vel­op­ment of our golf course near 43 Air School, and for our fundraiser tour­na­ment on Oc­to­ber 1,” Mg­weba said.

Ne­mato SPAR store man­ager, Roche Vorster, was glad to help, and wished the best for the sport’s de­vel­op­ment in Ne­mato. He said he was in­spired to help be­cause of what the golf club lead­ers had told him.

“The re­al­ity of their story is that they don’t have a lot, and they are try­ing to use sport to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether and give the youth a fight­ing chance,” Vorster said.
