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

By | News

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

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.
