This week, a brand new cricket oval was opened right next to Mandela square in Hammanskraal.
Brian Lara, the West Indies, left-handed Batsman celebrated Tshwane’s official opening of the oval.
Honoured guests, with the likes of Dr. Ali Bacher and Fanie de Villiers attended the launch of community cricket.
The state of the art facility, not only shows that our community is worth investing in, but has laid the foundation for bright sporting future for the youth of Hammanskraal.
Soon our own ‘Brian Lara’ from Hammanskraal will be hitting sixes for South Africa’s Protea team!
Kwalata is honoured to be invited and proud to be part of this great investment in our community.
We invite you to test your cricket skills against our local 11 or should you be interested in investing your time in one of our community projects.

By participating in service projects, the students were able to forge bonds with each other, as well as members of our community. They participated in events such as hanging and varnishing new doors and making lunch for the residents.

Round Square visited Rethabile Primary School to donate soccer and netball kits to the pupils.
The netball kits were sponsored by Abbotsholme School in England. Many thanks Suzanne Kuster, our girls are so very proud of their new look. Let’s hope it will allow them to shine at the up and coming inter school competitions.
The soccer kits were sponsored by Scotch Oakburn College via the facilitation of Stuart Walls, a South African teacher who has emigrated to Tasmania, Australia. Stuart says “Thanks for hosting us at the school, it was a wonderful experience for my students and a highlight of their entire trip to South Africa.”
Our thanks for a funfilled day!
