BRIEF MASHAKENG SPORTS FESTIVAL
Mashakeng Sports Festival which is the brainchild of Nomcebo Printers was started three years ago. Upon realizing that there are a lot of individuals in the Thaba Chweu Local Municipality with exceptional yet undiscovered talent in various sport activities, the company decided unanimously to create a platform to bridge the gap between local talent and professional scouts.
The core aim of the social event is to unearth, nurture & hone local talent in the sporting fraternity.
Since its inception, the Mashakeng Sports Festival has grown tremendously and has received vast support from various sponsors and the community at large. In the first year the focus was only on two sporting codes namely; soccer and netball. In the second year the focus was still on netball and soccer however an invitation was extended to all four units of the Thaba Chweu Local Municipality; The 3rd annual Mashakeng Sports Festival surpassed the previous ones because of additional sporting codes, Tennis, Volleyball and Basketball were added to the existing list.
