Time of Fixtures
2nd and 3rd term
Glenwood Hockey has a proud tradition of producing South African Schools representatives since 1960.
Our most notable SA Schools Representatives are Mike Madsen (64-68), Paddy Madsen (71-72), Trevor Madsen (73-75) and dual Olympian and current New Zealand Assistant Men’s Coach Greg Nicol (91-92). Our most recent success is Shanyl Balwanth(2002). Shanyl is currently part of the South African Men’s side and was part of the Beijing Olympics squad of 18.
Glenwood’s hockey programme was given a tremendous boost with the acquisition of our brand new Tiger turf facility in 2008. It is currently the only turf of its kind in South Africa and one of the few schools to boast a water based facility. This facility is able to host international hockey games and also consists of a clubhouse with dual change rooms with shower facilities.
The South African Men’s Olympic side, South African U21 and South African Girls U18 side have all played against international opposition at our facility.
Our First side goes to the Kingswood Hockey Festival during the April holidays. It is a very prestigious hockey tournament in the country and boasts
the likes of Kingswood College, St Andrews College, York High School, Woodridge College, and Cambridge College to name a few.
Our U14 A side attends the Ken Florence under 14 Festival which is hosted at Northwood during the April holidays. Our under 16 side goes to the Rondebosch Festival, and our 2nd side goes to the Crawford La Lucia Festival.
