First team cricket players from Grade 8 to Grade 12 from Wynberg Boys High School were treated to an epic training session with former South African cricket player, Ray Jennings. The school beat eight other Western Cape schools to win a Powerade Performance Session with Jennings as part of the Powerade Collect a Cap competition.
The Powerade Collect a Cap competition that ran in 51 enabled cricket playing schools from around the country to collect as many Powerade bottle caps as possible to stand the chance to host a training session with the well-known player.
The gruelling three hour training session laid the foundation for future cricket stars to shine as Jennings tested their knowledge of the game and their skills.
Marketing Activation Manager, Dan Davis at Peninsula Beverage Company (PenBev – local bottler and distributor of The Coca-Cola Company products, which includes Powerade, in the Western and Northern Cape) says, “The cricketers at Wynberg Boys definitely showed their enthusiasm for the sport and Jennings’ coaching tips as they took to the field. We at PenBev are incredibly proud to be able to contribute to the active healthy living of these and many other learners through our involvement in sport and sports development.”
“Powerade believes that by providing informative and interactive experiences like these to sportsmen, their passion for the game of cricket will be focused on a great future in the game,” explained James Maclachlan, IMC Marketing Assets Manager of Coca-Cola South Africa.
“We recognise that there is power in every game and through the Powerade Schools Programme, born sportsmen will be exposed to information and various means of training that will have long term benefits to their success,” Maclachlan concluded.
