Hall Sports Results

Allan Webb Hall has distinguished themselves in Sport at Rhodes University in the past, with Winchester House winning the Inter-Res Competition twice in the Mens section in 2000 and 2001 and Canterbury House winning twice in the Ladies section in 1998 and 2002. We pride ourselves on our committment to Sport at all levels, formal and informal, professional and amateur. Over the years several members of our Hall have distinguished themselves at the SASSU (South African Students Sports Union) Games in the fields of Rowing, Rugby, Basketball, Hockey and others. Several members of our Hall represent Rhodes University in a variety of team sports. We are especially proud of our successes, both past and present, because we are competing against Halls who are much larger than us and still managing to hold our own.
