All 10 games in the series would be official Test matches.

The SA men’s and women’s hockey teams will turn out in the two-week Private Property Summer Series in Cape Town starting on Saturday.

The national women’s side face India, Scotland and Germany, while the SA men are up against Olympic champions Germany, the SA Hockey Association confirmed on Tuesday.

All 10 games in the series would be official Test matches.

Neither national team will compete in a major international tournament this season, after their invitations to the Olympic Games were turned down by local officials who closed the African qualifying door.
