SPORTS– The MTN Well­ness Day cam­paign was a huge suc­cess as 21 com­pa­nies par­tic­i­pated in the dif­fer­ent sport­ing events. The event was held at the Prince of Wales Sports Ground yes­ter­day where the par­tic­i­pants com­peted in dif­fer­ent sport­ing codes.

Sports that were played on the day were golf and soc­cer. Golf was played at the Mba­bane Golf Club whilst soc­cer was staged at the sports ground. There were 15 ladies teams and 21 men’s teams. Teams played seven a –side foot­ball with games last­ing 10 min­utes each. Ac­cord­ing to MTN Well­ness Day’s Event Co­or­di­na­tor Nom­fundo Jiyane, the event was meant to in­ter­act with their cus­tomers and pro­mote a healthy life­style amongst its em­ploy­ees “It’s won­der­ful to see the re­sponse we got from our cus­tomers and cor­po­rate part­ners.

It is es­pe­cially en­cour­ag­ing to see so many ladies teams out here to­day. We are happy with the at­ten­dance and spirit which was dis­played by the par­tic­i­pants through­out the day,” she said.

Jiyane fur­ther said they were still go­ing to dis­cuss whether they will stage an­other sim­i­lar event in the near fu­ture. “Judg­ing from the re­sponse we will have to look at whether or not we will have an­other one,” said the co­or­di­na­tor.
