The Salamander Company is extensively involved in the marketing and production of major sports events and as such has undertaken to support a local community netball team in the Western Cape. Netball is a Commonwealth Games sport that provides a positive lifestyle pathway for many young girls as well as a fantastic platform to create role models.
The two teams that we support has some talented players who have the athletic ability and skill to play at representative level. Part of our partnership involved the provision of uniforms and kit which enabled both teams to play in the regional competition providing a clear pathway for Provincial and possibly South African representation.
With our strong Australian connections within the company we thought it was appropriate to give the team an Australian name, The Western Cape Wombats, which has been enthusiastically embraced by the team and supporter base.
