CLUB PROFILE: Masiphumelele RFC

7899722Masiphumelele RFC had humble beginnings as a casual Sunday team, playing its games in the Kayelitsha league. With no home venue to train or play in, their survival depended on the team’s individual passion to play rugby.

Now Masiphumelele RFC has a home at the Noordhoek sports grounds, in the South Peninsula. Masiphumelele RFC not only represents the South Peninsula, it actively supports the development of rugby for all communities in the area.

Masi RFC welcomes the support of the whole community, providing a friendly environment for the whole family.

In 2011 Masi RFC found a home in Noordhoek Sports Grounds.

With no field to practice on as a Sunday social rugby team a fixed venue became one of the club’s top priorities. There was a vision to play competitive rugby but facilities were needed. They were privileged enough to be granted the use of the Noordhoek Sports Grounds which only increased the vision and passion for all members.

In addition, in 2011 Masi RFC finished 1st in Division 4.

Their first competitive year in club rugby was a great success and saw Masi RFC establish their name as a potential contender in the sport. Topping Division 4 in their first year brought excellent community spirit and a very well deserved promotion to Division 3. Masi are currently competing in the Super League C Division.
