New home for sports council

Sport in the city has been given a much-needed boost after the Tshwane Sporting Council finally received a place to call home.

Yesterday, sporting regional representatives gathered at the Es’kia Mphahlele Library in Sammy Marks Square to be officially welcomed to their new offices. The offices, as well as a much-needed R500 000 boost, were handed over by the City of Tshwane’s Department of Community and Social Development Services.

Sporting Council vice-president Johan Welmans said he was happy that the body, which had existed since 2012, could finally start working and contributing positively to sporting efforts in the city.

Welmans said they could at last be the real and functional custodians of sports representing the seven regions, two universities, five sports NGOs and 47 sporting codes in the city.

We will support all sport initiatives of the city, deal with transformation issues with sports federations, source funding and build relationships with all sports federations.

MMC for Social Development Services Ntsiki Mokhotho said the Tshwane Sporting Council played a key role in identifying, nurturing and developing numerous projects the city needed.
She said the organisation’s work was more important than ever in the fulfilment of the vision of the national sports and recreation plan.

Sports councils are at the very heart of integrated development of sports at all levels. Their responsibility is that of co-ordinating programmes through local clubs.

Mokhotho added that despite challenges in initially getting things done, the new administration were keeping true to their goal of ensuring a caring city for its residents.
