Let’s Play com­pe­ti­tion is off

District Mail - - SKOLE SCHOOLS -

The monthly Distric­tMail/ SuperSport Let’s Play com­pe­ti­tion for 2020 has been can­celled.

This fol­lows a year in which all school sports were can­celled, in­clud­ing all pro­vin­cial and na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.

Ed­uard Rosen­strauch, me­dia spokesper­son for the SuperSport-run com­pe­ti­tion, stated the can­cel­la­tion was un­for­tu­nate and the monthly win­ners for 2020 would still re­ceive a small ham­per.

It was ini­tially hoped the com­pe­ti­tion would still reach a con­clu­sion this year, but the lengthy lock­down has re­sulted in al­most all sports events en­tirely can­celled this year.

“The com­pe­ti­tion will pick up again in 2021,” Rosen­strauch said. “Hope­fully all school sports will be up and run­ning again in the new year.”

Distric­tMail has been in part­ner­ship with SuperSport in the com­pe­ti­tion for more than 10 years.

Ev­ery month a young­ster ex­celling in their field of sport is se­lected as monthly win­ner, and at the end of the year all win­ners are hosted at a cer­e­mony where they are handed ham­pers, and an over­all win­ner for the year is se­lected.
