Hello, and welcome to the 2019 season for Pitchvest Sports Club.
Its was a busy offseason behind the scenes at the club with many new faces taking on positions on the committee and in other roles around the club. Thanks to everyone that has held positions at the club over the last few years, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
So onto the future: The current committee has been working hard to create a great environment for all of our members and their families to enjoy the game of hockey. We want all of our members to feel welcome at Pitchvest Sports Club and we strive to uphold our title as the family friendly club encouraging our members to enjoy every aspect of the sport, and their time around the club. We have some great coaches and I am confident that everyone will be able to improve their hockey in 2019, learn new skills, make new friends and hopefully win some games!
Longer term, many of you will be aware of the Pitchvest Sports Club's vision to redevelop the growth of Sport within the Zimbabwean community and I would, however, like to take this opportunity to ask something of you all: we as a club need to continue to work hard to raise our profile in the local community. Chinhoyi, Rusape, Gweru, Masvingo, Gutu, Bulawayo, Gokwe and their surrounding towns are vast area and a surprisingly large proportion of the local community don’t realise that we’re here, offering a great, friendly, welcoming and social environment for people to come and participate in a team sport.
So how can you help?
If you haven’t already, please take the time to ‘like’ us on facebook; then as the club posts about our local Infant & Junior programs, social events and all other important updates, simply share these posts to your own network of friends and contacts. You never know who might see your share and decide to join the club.
We also encourage you to put your hand up and help out throughout the season – this club is run entirely through volunteer support. We ask that you respect this, thank people for their contribution whenever you can and that we continue to grow and encourage every member to lend a hand to ensure our club continues to be known as the Family Friendly Club.
All the best for 2019!
Pitchvest Sports Club Team!
