Tongaat Panthers Athletics Club remains committed to the Youth Development programme. The programme which kicked off last year continues this year with more than 30 enthusiastic children from the Tongaat area attending every Wednesday.

The club co-ordinator, Ms Maharaj, said they have noticed an age gap in their club, with members being in their early 40s and some in their late 70s.
