This book is the ultimate collection of information on probably every sport that has been played in South Africa. Illustrated in full colour, Joel Alswang brings us the rules, the method of play, the specifications and layout of playing area of a multitude of sport. Not only will the reader find entries on well-known sport like rugby, cricket and tennis, but also on other lesser-known types, like the different kinds of martial arts, or metallic silhouette shooting and even pigeon racing. There is also a full section on traditional South African games, like kennetjie and even Zulu war dance. The South African Encyclopedia of Sport will be an essential guide to those who watch sport, but do not know the rules, and wish to understand what the fuss is about, but also to lovers of sport, who will find it a source for exploration of other types they perhaps have not even heard of.
