WOMEN'S FIRST DIVISION

The Women's First Division for 2022 will feature eight teams – Leopards, Valke, Limpopo, Pumas, Free State, Griffons, Griquas and SWD – and commences on 11 June. The structure of the competition will be confirmed in due course.

The history

In 2021, the Women's First Division was split into two sections. Four teams battled it out in Group 1 – Free State, Griffons, Griquas and SWD – while Group 2 featured five teams – the Leopards, Limpopo Blue Bulls, Mastercard Golden Lions, Valke and Pumas. The teams faced off in a single round and the two group winners progressed to the final, where the Lions ended up successfully defending the title they won in 2019.
