By durbshockey | In Announcements | on February 5, 2016

South African Grand Masters will be sending 3 squads of 16 players plus coaches and support staff. to represent South Africa in the Grand Masters World Cup for ages O/60, O/65 and O70 to be held in Newcastle Australia in May 2016.

The cost per person on a trip like this is R50 000 – This includes flights, hotels and transport. This brings the total amount to 2.5 million rand to send 3 teams to Australia.

Some players are not able to pay this amount and face Cheque Book selection.

In an effort to send all players to the world cup, Grand Masters is looking to raise as much as possible. Your generosity will give players a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel and represent their country in a sport they love.

With most people retiring from active team sports in their 40’s these athletes are setting new boundaries in what is achievable. Most of the athletes have been training under, the highly respected sports therapist Moira Mohan, for the last 2 years, with amazing results.

With your support we can give financial assistance to these senior athletes, so they can compete for South African in the 2016 GMH World Cup. There are several players who cannot afford to go to the World Cup, even though they would have been selected on merit. Help reduce check book selection.

Please donate every little bit helps.

For donations over R100 your name will be entered into a draw for a luxurious holiday at the Casa Barry Beach Lodge in Mozambique. They have kindly sponsored 7 days accommodation for 4 people valued at R70 000. (including Air Fares from Johannesburg)

In addition the names of all company donors will be circulated throughout the hockey community.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.
