By popular demand we are going to host another poll to determine Where is The Best School Sports Arena in South Africa for 2016.

Each year this poll enjoys a tremendous amount of response as thousands from around the country cast their vote as to which school has the Best School Sports Arena in the country.

In 2013 it was “The Rec” at Queen’s College that took the honors and in 2014 it was the turn of Piley Rees at Bishops who by a clear majority was voted as the best in SA with The Rec taking second spot and in 2015 Piley Rees edged out The Graveyard of Dale College.

Architecture, ambiance, history are all important criteria when it comes to choosing which arena is the best but the roar of the crowd can do more for a sporting arena that almost anything.

There is something about a school field or pool or court that will always hold memories that never fade but seem to grow brighter and perhaps bigger with each passing year. Yes maybe that wingers sprint to score the winning try was only 20 metres and the result of a dodgy pass, but for us it was all of 50 metres, in slow motion, mud kicking up behind him, time suspended as we stopped breathing and in that one moment, that scene, that noise yes that sports field was permanently etched into our minds with such clarity that many years in the future we would be able to recall it as if it has just happened.

The School Sports Arena is a special place, a place of great jubilation, of disappointment but more importantly a place that will always belong to us like a home that we long to revisit.

So which school will take the honors in 2016?

Brookes, Goldstones, The Rec, Markotter, The Main Reds, Stott, Brug Street, Memorial A and so many more are part and parcel of South African School Sport. Which is your favourite field? Let us know and vote for it now on our poll
