Welkom by Stellenbosch Van Der Stel Rolbalklub

Stellenbosch, in die hart van die Wes-Kaapse wynland, is die tweede oudste dorp in Suid Afrika. Die dorp spog met unieke historiese Kaap-Hollandse argitektuur, ‘n wêreldbekende universiteit, toonaangewende tegnologie-sentra, uitstaande sportfasiliteite, wyn van wereldgehalte en word omring deur berge, valleie, wingerde en vrugteboorde.

Rolbal word reeds meer as 75 jaar formeel in Stellenbosch gespeel. Die Van Der Stel Sportklub is in die vroeë 1920’s gevestig op ‘n gedeelte van die Bergzicht-plaas, oorspronklik vir rugby, en het mettertyd ook ander sportkodes onder sy administratiewe vleuel betrek. ‘n Mnr JLS Franzsen was die dryfkrag agter die stigting van die rolbalklub saam met sy vriend prof CS Edgar. Die eerste perk is op 12 Desember 1942 deur die destydse burgemeester, dr H.P Cruze, ingewy. Van die vroeëre lede van die rolbalklub was die bekende Paul Roos en oubaas Markotter.

Die rolbalklub spog met twee netjiese speelperke waarvan een oor beligting beskik, asook ‘n gerieflike klubhuis met buite braaigeriewe, ‘n kombuis, kroeg en fasiliteite waar sowat 120 persone akkommodeer kan word.

Die klub handhaaf ‘n ledetal van ongeveer 80 persone van beide geslagte en sluit jongmense in hul twintiger jare in tot by seniors van in die 80 jaar.

Die klub is heeljaar oop en sosiale spel vind Dinsdae, Donderdae en Saterdagmiddae plaas.

Een van die belangrikste fondsinsamelinggeleenthede op die klub se kalender is die sakeliga waartydens 112 mense uit die dorp se sakegemeenskap oor vier agtereenvolgende Woensdagaande in November en Februarie teen mekaar meeding. Sommige van die wedstryde word onder spreiligte gespeel. Dis ‘n besonder gewilde toernooi waar deelnemers in ‘n ontspanne atmosfeer met lekker musiek om die bane verkeer. Ander plaaslike jaarlikse kompetisies wat die klub aanbied, word geborg en sluit in die Die Cluver en Markotter-Opening van die Seisoen, asook die Checkers- en die Bettie Marcus-heeldagkompetisies.
