Basketball at Prestige College was started by Mrs. Ivonne Coetzee, the deputy principal, in 1995. Mrs. Coetzee later on became the acting principal of Prestige College and retired in 2015. The sport is offered for both boys and girls and a number of learners participate. Our girls’ basketball teams are the stronghold in Pretoria and dominate the Tshwane League. During the 2016 league we won 3 out of the 4 titles, including open team, for the 2nd year in a row! Our girl’s teams made history last year, winning the Tshwane League. The Basketball Girls Open Team participates annually in two festivals, the Maritzburg College Festival and the St. Peters Festival. Prestige College also produced a National Basketball player in 2016.
