The SPAR Eastern Cape Schoolgirls Hockey Challenge consists of five regional tournaments across the province.
The winners of each qualify for the provincial finals.
Matches are limited to 20 minutes, which makes for an intense format.
However, even though the nature of the tournament is competitive, the objective is to create a sense of camaraderie among opposing teams.
It is also a great opportunity for schools to play against teams who they would not normally meet on the field.
The tournament was started in Natal in 2011 and the success of that venture saw it being extended to the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng.
The first local edition took place in 2016.
