I’m into sports, can you tell? Jokes and stuff aside, I think it might have something to do with the current sporty mood around the World Cup or just my fidgety nature of liking things. As testimony to my newest ardour for sporty things, I went out to Pretoria last weekend for some live courtside action through a celeb studded netball match -all for a good cause.
The semi-professional league that is this year’s newly introduced Brutal Fruit Netball Cup had reached its finals and an interesting element to wrap its success included a challenge with local celebrities paired in teams alongside some truly talented professionals from the National All Star Netball to lend support and help raise funds to benefit POWA (People Against Woman Abuse). These celebs where divided into two teams with Lalla Hirayama, Zizo Beda, Pearl Modiadie, Eda Rose and Pearl Thusi holding it down for the #LavasciousLemons whilst Jenna Dover, Dineo Moeketsi, Khanya Mkhangisa, Luthando Shosha and Lerato Kganyago were on the opposing team the #CheekyCranberries.
The match was both fun and funny –I had almost forgotten how I too can get gripped into things, almost like a pageant dad who just won’t stop scream-coaching from the grandstands. #LavaciousLemons won with 8 points over #CheekyCranberries’ well contended final score of 4 goals/ dunks/ sinks. If this game was anything to go by, I am super excited for the next five years of these awesome partnerships: major shout out to Brutal Fruit, the Ministry of Sports and Recreation, Netball South Africa and of course DNA Brand Architects for such an awesome hookup and a reminder that I am totally into sports too.
