NDLOVU CARE GROUP





























The Sports Program runs from a multipurpose sport facility which accommodates a soccer field, two tennis courts, a netball court, basketball pitch, and a volleyball court, all compatible for people with disabilities.  This facility is located in the Moutse Township in the Elandsdoorn area, in the immediate vicinity of the Ndlovu Community Health Centre. The indoor facility features a fully equipped gymnasium with electronic scales and cardio-vascular training equipment, including treadmills and spinner bikes, workout circuits, and weights. Also available are facilities to shower and separate rooms for aerobics training and a games room for the youth.
The outdoor courts are clearly a popular venue for the local community to socialize and connect. Soccer is by far the most popular outdoor sport with boys, accounting for 2/3 of the monthly activity. Girls dominate the netball and volleyball courts. There is almost an even split between the number of people utilizing the gym and the activity rooms. Two playrooms have been added at the sports centre where community members play table tennis, football and snooker. The combination of activities and events are leading to increased numbers of visitors participating in structured events in our activity rooms.

With this level of public engagement, the sports program is a highly effective means for delivering the NCG’s messages to the community and assists to channel those in need into the organization’s wider range of services, both community and clinical services. The facility has advanced features and can compete with private gymnasiums found in major cities in the region. It also has the advantage of being the only gymnasium in the catchment area. The program identifies and nurtures sporting talent at individual or team levels through use of qualified fitness instructors This is an important insight because it affirms that the community sees this facility as an integral asset to local organizing and chooses to use the facility as an assembly point. This also instils confidence that our message is reaching the community through casual activity at the gym and through more structured programming. messages to the community and assists to channel those in need into the organization’s wider range of services, both community and clinical services.
