Stellenbosch Primary held their annual schools invitational tournament this past weekend. As usual it was a fun way to introduce new players to a tournament, with some tough tie-breaks between the top players in each age group.
Some pics of the medal winners.
Unfortunately it seems I missed the U/8 Boys and the U/12s.
