Gary Kirsten Foundation Nominated for Major Sports Award


The Gary Kirsten Foundation is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of the nominees for Development Programme of the Year accolade at the 2017 Discovery Sports Industry Awards.

The awards which aim to celebrate the best work off the field in the business of sport and showcase everything that is great about the South African sport industry made contact with the GKF to submit an entry.

The foundation which was formed just four years ago has made tremendous strides in the development of the game in township communities of Khayelitsha in the Western Cape.

“We are very excited to be nominated for this prestigious award. It is an honour,” Gary Kirsten beamed.

“We are hoping that it will showcase the work that the GK Foundation is doing,” he added.

Over the years the GKF has worked on various projects from net installations, coach development for our township cricket development initiative and planning South Africa’s first complete artificial cricket field.

“Our coaches have put in an enormous amount of work on the ground. We believe that we can make a positive and long lasting impact in township communities,” Kirsten concluded.
