Tinita goes batty for cricket
TINITA van Zyl, a Grade 6 learner at Forest View Primary School, was selected as its SPAR Star of the Month.
Tinita was described as a delightful learner due to her passion for life and cricket.
She has been selected in both 2017 and 2018 for the U13 PADSSA (Pinetown and Districts) girls’ cricket team and has represented the Pinetown District at KZN festivals where she was selected to represent one of the two KZN U13 girls’ cricket teams.
She just loves to be part of a team and really encourages her teammates on the field
She travelled to Gauteng in December 2017 to represent her province and had the honour, along with her team mates in March, to form the guard of honour for the Protea team at Kingsmead in the international game against the Australian team.
Tinita is an all-rounder both on the cricket pitch and in life.
In cricket, she is able to keep behind the wicket, bats in the middle order and has great seam bowling action. Tinita has played both 1st and 2nd team matches for the Forest View Primary School team this year.
Tinita also takes part in school swimming, netball and soccer.
