he says so many sports celebrities have been coming personally to the venue to collect tickets and kit - the likes of Bryan Habana and more.

He says its testament to how friendly and accessible the players are and encourages youngsters to come to the event and meet these approachable sports heroes.

We have made it accessible to as many people as possible and for the first time netball is bigger than rugby.

About 25 000 fans are expected to enter the gates of the Hamilton Rugby Club in Greenpoint on Saturday hand Sunday to experience the fun, games and gees, he says.
