Wellington campus revamps sport facilities

OPENING: Head of Student Affairs, Malinge Gqeba and CPUT student Enanda Heasbroek cut the ribbon at the official opening of the tennis courts.

The Wellington campus is set to become the sports hub of the Boland region thanks to a substantial donation of R4.5million from the National Lotteries Board.

The campus, which boasts a thriving sports culture, recently used the funds to revamp the surfaces of several tennis and netball courts and also install mast lighting at the rugby field.

The funding was awarded to the institution after Wellington Campus Sports Coordinator Tyrone Africa submitted a proposal to the board highlighting the need for an upgrade of the facilities.

Speaking at the recent official opening of the revamped facilities, Africa says the makeover is a stepping stone for other sport related projects.

“This is a pioneer project for the institution. We would like to improve sport facilities across the CPUT campuses,” he says.

FUN: The netball and rugby team show off their skills on the resurfaced netball court.

Head of Student Affairs, Malinge Gqeba thanked the board for their investment in CPUT and also commended Africa for putting together the winning proposal.

“The National Lotteries Board made it possible for those playing sport to have access to proper facilities,” he says.

And students are already reaping the benefits of the state-of-the-art facilities.

Deputy Chairperson of the Sports Forum at the campus, Enanda Heasbroek, says with new lighting installed at the netball and tennis courts, which also boast new smooth surfaces, the teams have been able to extend their training hours.

“We are training for much longer periods at night and it is really improving our skills,” she says.

Head of the Rugby Team, Ashley Dreyden says the new mast lighting on the rugby fields means they can now host student league games, which usually take place at night.

“The facilities are top notch,” says Ashley.
