What a wonderful few days of fun and action at the Oakhill Waterfront Chukka Festival for primary schools! Oakhill was proud to welcome and host teams from around the country who visited our beautiful town for a fast-paced weekend of water polo. Both Oakhill’s U13 teams once again did us proud through their display of teamwork, determination and sportsmanship. Well done to all who participated and supported!
Knysna-Plett Herald’s Blake Linder reported, “Much like Blue Suede has had people hooked on a feeling since 1972, the annual Oakhill Waterfront Chukka Festival once again has Knysna hooked on water polo action. The first of the three chukka festivals – the U13 Chukka Festival – got underway with 16 schools taking part in the weekend’s activities that began on Thursday 6 February when the schools checked into their accommodations. Fixtures officially got underway on Friday 7 February, with two pools at the Knysna Waterfront and Knysna Quays, one positioned outside Drydock and the second outside 34° South. The next chukka festival comes in the form of the U19 installment this weekend, with 20 schools and 14 boys and 16 girls teams set to take part. Gallery”
