Marathon plans Zimbabwe
14 May 2004

The HAZ have arranged a series of events over the week-end of 15th / 16th May, as follows -

  1. Bulawayo - U/12 - Primary Schools Tournament (approx 30 schools)
  2. Harare - U/18 - Interzonal Tournament
  3. Harare - U/16 - Interzonal Tournament
  4. Harare - U/14 - Local Tournament

The Bulawayo event will definitely proceed. The fact that government has closed down almost all private schools may however impact negatively on the Harare events which are drawing on the senior private schools.

In Bulawayo, the primary school teams will meet the HAZ Sportsman of the Year at the Civic Fountain (Centenary Park) and then process to the stadium before the tournament starts. Caching programmes as well as matches have been arranged, and the press has promised its full support. It will be a lot of fun for all involved.

In Harare the various tournaments have attracted teams from throughout Zimbabwe, so will certainly be a celebration of hockey and youth. The HAZ President will be in attendance there.
