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.
