  BSI Tournament Results

Well done to Mangezi Maswanganyi for his third win this year in the BSI 18-hole Premier Medal on Friday, 27 May 2022, played on the West Course at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC. Mangezi’s first two wins were at the back-end of Cycle 1, so we hope that he finishes Cycle 2 in similar fashion and brings home more ‘Ws’ in the next 4 weeks.

Personal bests:
Daniel Macdonald - 78

Congratulations to Grant Labuschagne on his fourth BSI Golf Junior Academy Medal in 2022, on Friday, 27 May, with a score of 72 on the West Course at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC. Grant has bounced back well and it is good to see him on top of the leaderboard again. Keep up the intensity and focus Grant as it is working.

WMACA Athletes Against Child Abuse Awareness Campaign

On Saturday, 28 May 2022, we hosted an awareness-raising event at the BSI Football Campus for WMACA Athletes Against Child Abuse. Our community and guests were presented with two highly informative, thought-provoking  and emotional talks by Luke Lamprecht and Olivia Jasriel, one for parents, educators and coaches, and another for our youth athletes.

These were followed by a celebrity football match with the likes of Gavin Hunt and Matthew Booth participating.  A high level of competitiveness was still shown by the more “experienced” players on the day. 

A big thank you to all who gave their time to attend and participate, to SuperSport for covering the event, and to our food and beverage sponsors on the day, OBC Butchery and Liquor City Stoneridge. Well done to our football department for hosting such a great event.

Balderstone Sports Institute is proud to play an ambassadorial role for WMACA Athletes Against Child Abuse. Look out for more awareness and fundraising events for this highly important cause.
