This 9th annual Dick Eyeington 7 a-side tournament, held on the 22nd of July 2017, was the biggest one we have had thus far - with 24 teams signing up to play. The sign-up forms had been made available on the 7th of June 2017 and disabled three weeks later on the 28th of June, with 16 external teams already signed up. On the WK campus, there were sign-up sheets placed in the staff room, on the Advancement Office door, as well as handed to the Maintenance and Catering Staff.
The Enid Eyeington tournament was also played alongside the Dick Eyeington tournament. Since it was the first time to host a women’s tournament, invitations were sent out to a number of women’s teams and there were 5 teams signed up for the tournament.
The tournaments were very competitive and most of the teams worked hard throughout the day. At the end, All Star Ladies and Libumbano Arsenal were crowned the champions this year.
