WOMEN'S FIRST DIVISION

The Women's First Division in 2023 was won by the Free State Women, who beat the 2022 champions, the SWD Eagirls, in a nail-biting final in Bloemfontein. The competition features seven teams who played each other over a single round of league matches. The other teams who compete are the Leopards and Limpopo Blue Bulls, who were in the semi-finals in 2023, as well as the Valke, Pumas, Griffons and Griquas.
