Reddam coach heads to Tokyo Olympics


Reddam House uMhlanga’s Director of Hockey, Gowan Jones, will be representing South Africa on the hockey field at the Tokyo Olympics. Durban-born Gowan joined Reddam uMhlanga at the beginning of 2018 and is grateful for their support: “The whole Reddam House group has been incredibly supportive in encouraging me during this opportunity to compete at the Olympics.”

His journey to the Olympics has been years in the making. He earned his first cap for South Africa in 2013 and has represented South Africa at two Hockey World Cups. He went on to be part of Team South Africa at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and is now part of the 2020 SA Men’s Olympic Squad.

A passionate and determined fitness fanatic, he is incredibly dedicated to his training and nutrition. Gowan has built a solid reputation in the hockey community which inspired him to start a goalkeeping academy to share his knowledge and experience with the next generation of players. He is also a qualified strength and conditioning coach as well as a sports massage therapist which adds value to his coaching as well as his own game and training regime.

Phuza Water Ballito


How and when did your business start and what was the inspiration behind it? My new water venture began three months ago when I bought the existing business as a going concern. Growing up in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains, supplying clean pure drinking water at affordable prices has been a dream that has inspired me to aquire Phuza Water Ballito.

What makes Phuza Water unique? I have been in involved in the petroleum, retail and construction industry for the most of my working career. Starting and growing a business while focusing on service delivery is my goal in every venture I’m involved with. I’m passionate not only about growing businesses but also about the people I meet along the way.

What can you offer Ridge readers? Best prices without compromise to quality. Service delivery and a personal relationship with our customers. Being a smaller water supply business means we can service our customers according to their individual needs – be it for their homes, or branded water for businesses or restaurants and events.
