Peterhouse Boys

First Team Hockey Tour to Namibia 2017

Our season ended in Bulawayo on the Sunday the 6th August, and by the following Wednesday, first team hockey was sitting at Harare International Airport waiting for the Air Namibia flight to depart. Five of these players sitting amongst the team were new to the squad, and shall hopefully continue to be a part of senior hockey and the first team in the years to come.

A tour isn’t a tour without the occasional delay, and ours started with exactly that, arriving in Windhoek well after dark. Thankfully, the reception we received was warm and welcoming and a special mention must go to Mr. Johann Weyhe who was a fantastic host. Thanks to the meticulous planning by Mr. Banda hockey never wastes time, and we went straight into two games the following day.

Rugby Tour to Namibia 2017

13th August 2017 to 25th August 2017

On Sunday August 13th 2017 Peterhouse Boys Rugby Squad set out on tour to Namibia. We were to play three games in a space of twelve days. The tour started off with a few hiccups , the airline was delayed by four hours at Harare Airport and our usual suspect, Rodney Sachiti, forgot his travel document. Rodney would remain behind and meet up with the team later.

The squad landed in Windhoek where we were met by Thys Reynecke and Gisela Laborn the tour organizers. Thys would become our tour liaison officer, bus driver and tour operator for most of the trip whilst Gisela would handle everything in the back ground, they were very well organized and made sure we had everything we required.
