With some of the best sports facilities in the country, Jwaneng has hosted a number of prestigious sports events like the internationally recognised Toyota 1000 Desert Race, popularly known as the Mantshwabisi, the softball extravaganza and the recent bowling friendly between Botswana and Mafikeng Select.

The Zebras held a training camp in the town to prepare for the recent AFCON qualifier against Guinea Bissau. The town is scheduled to host boxing and softball tournaments. The merger of all football clubs in the town to form Jwaneng Galaxy means Premier League action might return to the diamond hub soon.
