The Inter-mines Sports games under the Chamber of Mines is an annual event, but in 2020 and 2021, the event could not take place due to the Covid 19 pandemic which came with lockdown and legislative directives, which temporarily paused sports activities in the country. Last year, this event was re-introduced by Swakop Uranium, which has again become a collective industry effort that is being coordinated through the Chamber of Mines. Every year, a different mining operation have the privilege of hosting this renowned event.
