Cape Town 10s | 23rd – 25th September 2021

By | News | No Comments

Dearest 10s Players,

We apologize for being so quiet the last couple of weeks, finalizing the logistics for 10s in this time has been a bit more complicated than what we have anticipated. To be honest the whole process around are we hosting are we not, what are the changes, what are the protocols, how many teams, the format of the matches, music lineup etc. has been very frustrating and very emotional at the same time. This is our baby and it is what we do. To be told for the last 15 x months that we are not allowed to play and earn a living is not easy. However, constant glimmers of hope has been the feedback and support we have had from you who have rolled with us as we had to make plans and changed formats and dates.

In the last month, we have tried to put a plan in place to have the best and safest Cape Town 10s. We have submitted three different plans to the City of Cape Town (all being COVID Friendly) but unfortunately, they have advised us to postpone the Cape Town 10s. We believe that this is the best option to keep all our players and spectators safe. If we decided to continue with the May date, we had to host a smaller event, meaning less teams and no spectators. This is not an option as we believe that Cape Town 10s should be experienced in all its glory.

As such we have been granted 23 – 25 September as an alternative date. A bit later in the year but a beautiful part of the year nonetheless as Cape Town heads into Spring and we all come out of hibernation ready to tackle summer.

Luckily, we do not just have bad news. We understand that being part of 10s is so much bigger than just coming to the events, over the years we have formed a community that brings friends and teammates together and that is something that we would like to

continue even if we can’t host a 10s event at the moment. With that being said we are hosting a few small events in different areas to make sure you keep “fit”. The 10s Winter Edition will see the following Events make their debut:

Quench Partners Up With Cape Town 10s

By | News | No Comments

South Africa’s newest and hottest new delivery app, Quench, has teamed up with the Cape Town 10s and will be looking to join SA’s Premier Sports & Music Festival in delivering a new era of action and entertainment. The 10s Series sees the toughest of professionals to the most festive of amateurs take part in a variety of sports, providing loads of fun for participants and spectators.

The Quench Cape Town 10s, now in its 13th year, has gained the reputation of being one of the must-attend events on the city’s calendar and offers the fit and healthy folk of the Mother City no less than 10 x different sports to compete in.

“We are extremely excited and proud to be the headline sponsor of the Cape Town 10s” says Liam McCreedy, Quench’s Founder and Chief Operating Officer.

“I have always been a passionate supporter at the Cape Town 10s weekend. For the last three years, I dreamed about sponsoring a rugby or netball ball team in Quench’s bright purple colours. It thus goes without saying that myself and the entire Quench team are super excited about this unique partnership. The Cape Town 10s represents unity, camaraderie, and fun, which are all beliefs we as a company hold close to our hearts. The 10s has somewhat stretched from a local sporting weekend into a national lifestyle phenomenon that so many people markdown as an annual calendar event. The crowd in which the Cape Town 10s attracts is a perfect match for Quench, our mission will be to fly the Quench flag high and educate the people on how to QUENCH IT! Through fun and engaging activations and one or two secret surprises I truly believe the 2021 Cape Town 10s will be one for the history books. I am sure this is the start of what will become a long-term flourishing partnership” McCreedy adds.

“We are thrilled to have Quench on board as our new headline sponsor! We have always aligned ourselves with brands that share the same fundamental brand character, spirit and culture. We are certain that our loyal 10s fans are going to love the new member of our squad”, added Gerhardi Odendaal, Cape Town 10s Tournament Director.

Keep an eye on the Cape Town 10s website and social media for entries and other cool details. This event is overseen and managed by the Old School Group, “a really cool sports and lifestyle business” specializing in active sport and lifestyle experiences.

Can Jack Parow Catch a Rugby Ball?

Can Jack Parow Catch a Rugby Ball?

These, and other important questions will be answered at the highly anticipated 2020 Cape Town 10s tournament during the final weekend of January.

The Cape Town 10s is the City’s premium annual social sport and lifestyle event, and will host a multitude of sporting codes and popular music acts at the Green Point Common Fields in Cape Town from 31 January to 1 February.

The primary draw card of the 10s is most certainly the many famous and hometown heroes who descend on to Green Point to play on and off the sports field. The 10s rugby tournament, where professionals and amateurs put on a show stopper for the 25 000 fans who gather for a weekend of non-stop rugby action, is back. The Abantwana Bomghuba, World Cup Winning Captain Siya Kolisi’s home club in Port Elizabeth, is back to defend their title as the tournament culminates with a final show down on the Saturday afternoon.

With South African Netball making waves across the globe, it is not surprising that a staggering 112 teams are set to squeak takkie in the 2020 event.
The 6km SPAR Fun Run offers another option for participants, whilst golf is a brand new addition to the 10s with night golf at Westlake, a full round at Metropolitan and a virtual golf play off at the 10s venue on the Saturday. Hockey, 5-a-Side Soccer and Dodgeball round outan impressive sporting line up which should see 7000 + athletes compete on the weekend. The daytime dance floor will be heaving with fans ready to enjoy the musical line up of Jack Parow, Sunset Seatshop, Biggy and Majozi across two stages. A new third stage will feature a talented DJ line up throughout.

The 10s has firmly established itself as one of the premium sports and lifestyle festivals globally, and the impressive performances of our sports teams recently as well as the incredible welcoming the Boks had on their triumphant return from Japan just shows why this event concept keeps on growing and improving every year. We South Africans love sport, we enjoy a celebration, and what better place in the world than Cape Town to do
this?”, says Gerhardi Odendaal of the Old School Group, owners and organisers of the festival.

“Sport is king at the Cape Town 10s, music and cold beers are compulsory, whilst making new friends, building relationships and introducing more people to the power of sport is why we keep on doing this event,” adds Gerhardi.

A total of 80 social rugby teams from all over South Africa will compete in seven different divisions, including a Vets division, which will include the Thirsti Legends team, captained by the formidable trip of Schalk Burger, Schalk Brits and Schalk Bezuidenhout, a Social division, and a Premier 10s division, featuring cup winners from various 10s and 7s tournaments throughout South Africa.

Jack Parow really is heading on to the field as one of the BOS Sport celebrity team players,under the careful management of Siv Ngesi.

Cape Town 10s Welcomes SPAR Western Cape

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Cape Town 10s launches its 12th year of action-packed sport and live entertainment as 31 January and 1 February shapes up yet again for a massive weekend of hyped up experiences for fans, players and celebrities alike.

Players and fans can begin the count down and again look forward to an entertaining mix of rugby, hockey, netball, dodgeball and soccer, as well as the Run The 10s which is back for its second year. A fun new Golf format makes its way onto the scene as well!

With their shared passion for high-end energy and healthy lifestyle choices, Old School Group and SPAR Western Cape are thrilled to announce their partnership with SPAR Western Cape named as the official partner of the Cape Town 10s Netball and the SPAR Run The 10s event which takes runners through the iconic Green Point Stadium.

“With sporting fans and players returning year on year, Cape Town 10s ensures a world-class consumer experience for all Capetonians. The Cape Town 10s is an award-winning event and the biggest 10s of its kind in the world. The new partnership with SPAR Western Cape is really exciting and the perfect fit for the 10s. The SPAR ladies’ races and their long-standing relationship with netball in South Africa is a testament to their commitment to uplifting sport in South Africa and we are really happy to welcome them to the IAM10s movement.” says Gerhardi Odendaal, MD at 10s.

“SPAR is beyond excited to line up with the Cape Town 10s, particularly as our SPAR culture of caring extends beyond food and nutrition. Balance to life is key – it’s getting the right nutrition, enough rest, physical exercise and social engagement and that’s what Cape Town 10s offers up.  With Netball World Cup being hosted in SA in 2023, it’s a natural fit for us to be headlining the 10s Netball with over 112 netball teams taking part.  For these reasons we feel CT10s and SPAR are perfectly aligned, and we are excited to be a part of the event,” comments Elsabé van Zyl, Advertising Manager of SPAR Western Cape and Namibia.

Entries for Netball are now open and with 90 teams already registered and limited space for more the 2020 netball event at the 10s is going to be one massive experience, see the website details below to quickly book those last team places.

The positive response to the first successful Run The 10s that took place earlier this year was overwhelming and, as a result, Run The 10s is back and set to become a firm favourite with the active Cape Town sports community.  This 6km fun run on Saturday 1 February 2020 takes you through some iconic nooks and crooks and then finishes in the Cape Town 10s where the rest of the day can be spent taking in what is The Best Live Experience Event in South Africa. Keep an eye on the Cape Town 10s website for entries and other details.
