The organizers of the Twizza Super School Series are excited to announce that the Regional Qualifiers will take place at the Bestmed Tuks Athletics Stadium (19 September 2019) and Green Point Athletics Stadium (05 October 2019), with the Bestmed Tuks Athletics Stadium also playing host to the Grand Finale on 01 February 2020.
Launched earlier this month, the Twizza Super School Series has one clear goal in mind – to crown SA’s best athletics school! There can be only ONE WINNER! This school will take home the BIGGEST TROPHY in SA SCHOOL SPORT and bragging rights for one year!
“In order to identify, crown and celebrate South Africa’s best athletics school we created a platform that is accessible to all schools,” says Ajee Valentine, Twizza National Sponsorship Manager. “We are excited to host the inaugural Twizza Super School Series at the Bestmed Tuks Athletics Stadium and Green Point Athletics Stadiums. The Series is not just another school’s athletics meet. Twizza believes in special moments, moments that make memories, moments worth sharing. The Twizza Super School Series is going to be one of those moments. The host venues, therefore, need to be able to cater for the influx of schools, friends and families.”
“The two regional qualifiers will identify the Top 40 schools that will compete at the Grand Finale in Pretoria,” continues Valentine. “Not only will the series present future track & field stars with healthy competition, they will also be given a premium platform to represent their schools. The winning school will officially be crowned South Africa’s best athletics school and will take home the coveted Twizza ‘Taste The Moment’ Trophy and bragging rights for a year. Adding to our #TasteTheMoment theme, we are really excited about the entertainment aspect of the Grand Finale. The ‘arts & culture’ department at each of the Top 40 qualifying schools will have the opportunity to challenge for a slot to perform at the Grand Finale. We’ll elaborate on this at a later stage, but we are looking for the magic that memories are made of. We invite schools, scholars and parents to #TasteTheMoment with Twizza at the Twizza Super School Athletics Series.”
