City brings Netball World Cup action to communities<p>With the official start of the Netball World Cup this week, the City would like to encourage residents to come out and enjoy the sport at a Public Viewing Area (PVA) close to them. Each viewing area will be equipped with seating, surround sound and live uninterrupted streaming of the games so there is no need to worry about load-shedding. Refreshments and snacks will be available for purchase at affordable rates and local entertainment will take place at each location. The event promises to be an exciting day for family and friends.</p><p>Admission to all PVAs is free. Spectators are asked to follow all health and safety protocols for a fun and safe viewing experience. Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult, and alcohol and smoking are strictly prohibited at the venues.</p><p>As per the official match schedule for the Netball World Cup (NWC) 2023, each PVA will be accessible from 28 July to 6 August from  09:00 to the end of the last match for the day. PVAs are equipped with ample parking and ablutions and can accommodate a maximum capacity of 500 people at a time.</p><p>'The City is excited to bring this event to its residents. We hope this event will bring people together and create a sense of community. These recreational facilities are an essential part of the City's infrastructure, allowing residents to gather and experience the Netball World Cup, while providing a space for youth to engage in sport and recreational activities,' said Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia van der Ross.</p><p>Below are the four PVA locations:</p><p>∙ Proteaville Recreation Centre, c/o Peter Barlow and Abdurahman Streets, Bellville South</p><p>∙ Langa Civic Hall, c/o Church and Washington (King Langalibalele) </p><p>∙ OR Tambo Multi-Purpose Centre, Jeff Masemola Street, Khayelitsha</p><p>∙ Portland Indoor Centre, Address: c/o Merrydale & Hazeldene Avenues, Portland, Mitchells Plain</p><p> </p><p>'Our aim is to ensure that all netball fans, local netball teams, including those without tickets to watch games live at the CTICC, may also participate in the energy and excitement of the games and cheer on their favourite teams.<strong> </strong>There will be a range of enjoyable activities at each PVA including local performers, a DJ, food vendors, and more.
