South African Master Sports Association’s moto is to bring together master’s sportsmen

and women in all communities to practice their sport to promote the philosophy of “Sport

for Life”

Once again, we would like to pass on our thoughts to our SAMSA Family-we hope you are

all still safe and well. We are gradually starting to move back to some normality.

Unfortunately, due to this pandemic, there still has been no sport developing or sport

activities. Hopefully this pandemic will pass as quickly as it came, and all normality will resume in full speed.

We received some feed back from the Golden Oldie Netball Festival that was held in

Hawaii in March this year. It looks like you all had to go through a difficult time, but I am

sure in the end you all enjoyed it and it was worthwhile.

On the 14th March 2020 I left the country to play in the ‘Golden Oldies’ World Netball

Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii, planned to take place from 15 – 22 March. 71 Teams, making

700 participants, attended the festival which is held every 2 years, and members and

players should be over 35 years of age. ‘Golden Oldies’ sport is about ‘Fun, Friendship

and Fraternity’ taking people to all corners of the world they might not have seen. Games

are played for a week with social events included.

We enjoyed the opening ceremony on arrival, and all the scheduled first games which

were played on Monday 16th. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, Honolulu Government

announced the cancellation of all group participating sports on the evening of 16th March.


We are calling all other codes to join SAMSA. Membership fees are R 500. 00 per annum, per code. ALL CODES ARE WELCOME!

(A friendly reminder that membership fees are payable before 31 st March 2020 for each code)

Just a friendly reminder for all Sport Codes to please email their 2020 calendars so that the calendar can be updated and distributed.

South African Master Sports Association’s motto is to bring together masters sportsmen and women in all communities to practice their sport in order to promote the philosophy of “Sport for Life”
