All eleven municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal are looking forward to the annual South African Local Government Association (Salga) KZN Games to be held in the uThukela District Municipality from 9 till 12 December.

The tournament is an annual mixed code sporting event held in the province for all its district municipalities which are; Amajuba, iLembe, Sisonke, Ugu, Umgungundlovu, Umkhanyakude, Umzinyathi, uThukela , uThungulu, Zululand and the eThekwini Metropolitan.

Inaugurated in 1998, and supported by the provincial department of arts, culture, sport and recreation the much anticipated event emphasises the important role that sport plays in society.

Sport has the ability to transcend being ‘just games’ through providing entertainment, promoting local economics and promoting healthy lifestyles. The Games have also become a successful sporting model for other South African provinces to follow. 

The tournament consist of 15 codes: rugby, cricket, swimming, ballroom dance, golf, soccer, volleyball, indigenous games, swimming, karate, netball, table tennis, athletics, boxing, and basketball.

Selection for the events takes place at ward, local and district municipal level within KwaZulu-Natal.
