Neglecting women in sport is a missed opportunity for corporate SA

In South Africa there are many sporting codes that enjoy massive support, with big sponsors.

However, Motshidisi says there needs to be more support trickling down to women in sport.

“Pay women well enough so that they do not have to worry about side hustles. Women in sport are not getting the financial support they deserve,” says Motshidisi, who is most famous for her role as a Rugby presenter/anchor.

According to Gerard Metzer, General Manager of Durban Country Club, the idea to honour these sporting legends was birthed from the vision to keep the legacy that each of the captains created during their service alive. “So many of our sporting heroes have been forgotten, only to be remembered and commemorated on their death. We want to pay tribute to these legends whilst they are alive so that we #neverforget!”

He adds that it is with great pride and admiration that Durban Country Club is awarding South Africa’s greatest sporting leaders with an honorary membership, “We are incredibly privileged to now have them as esteemed members of our Club.”

This is just the first of many honorary captain events, as, according to Metzer, Durban Country Club aims to honour 100 Captains by 2022, their centenary year.
