The hockey community is a tight-knit one. You won’t find many a hockey supporter who isn’t a die-hard fan of the sport. It’s all or nothing when it comes to this code. Varsity Hockey is no exception and Twitter showed us why this past week.
1. Local humour at its best!
Marcia Seane was one of the most vocal of the weekend. This just one of her multiple memes, gifs and videos!

This was how almost every true supporter of South African hockey was feeling when treated to eight live matches in two days thanks to SuperSport.

3. Celebrating success!
Cheryl Roberts was one of the many to shout the praises of some of this weekend’s most talented players, who had the rare opportunity of playing to a live TV audience.
They were some of the outstanding players at the first leg of #VarsitySports women’s hockey action in Cape Town. They are UCT’s Nepo Serage and Sandiswa Tabata from Maties. They are quality hockey players and should rock on the field at this weekend’s Varsity Sport women’s hockey pic.twitter.com/K3ekjf94wY

4. University pride
Nothing unites a university and its alumni quite like a Varsity Sports event.

5. Dreams realised
There’s nothing quite like achieving a dream, or being a part of those achieving them!
